How Much Does a Whiplash Claim Cost?

Before making a whiplash claim you will want to have a clear understanding all of the costs involved. We understand that it is important to know exactly what you will need to pay during the process of claiming.

The Government changed the law in April 2013 meaning that you may now be required to pay some of your legal costs if you win your claim.

All initial enquiries at 1stClaims remain completely free of charge and our solicitors will explain all funding options to you during your first conversation. At 1stClaims, we understand the importance of transparency and so ensure that all our expert solicitors take you through any costs with complete clarity.

No Win No Fee Whiplash Claims

If you are considering making a claim for whiplash, 1stClaims still provide a true no win no fee whiplash claim service to ensure that you can make a claim with complete peace of mind. Quite simply, if you do not win your whiplash claim you do not pay a penny towards your legal costs. 

After all, if you have suffered a whiplash injury, you have suffered enough already and we want to make your life much easier and more stress free from now on. Call us free on 0800 2888 693 (from a mobile click to call: 01275 774 557) to ask us any question about no win no fee whiplash claims.

Legal Expense Insurance and Whiplash Claims

Often you will find that if you have been involved in a car accident you might have legal expense insurance. If you do, 1stClaims can still help you and we believe that we are the best company to do so.

Although your legal expense insurer might ask you to pursue your whiplash claim through their chosen solicitors, ultimately it is completely your choice. The legal expense insurer might have an arrangement with solicitors which suits them, but that does not always mean that it will be the best arrangement for you.

Why Choose 1stClaims?

1stClaims is an independent company. We use our many years of experience to pick dedicated expert solicitors who have handled thousands of whiplash claims over their legal careers. Using partners in law firms, or experienced solicitors or legal executives, we know that they will take care of you. Often a legal expense insurer selects solicitors for purely commercial reasons for their own benefits, not for yours. Even if your legal expense insurer has recommended a solicitor for you, we can still help you. Why not try speaking to our solicitor before you make a final decision. There is no charge and no obligation, but at least then you will be able to make a choice based on who you feel will look after you and your whiplash claim better.

Here are just some of the reasons why we believe a 1stClaims whiplash claim solicitor is the right choice for your no win no fee claim:
