Frequently Asked Questions

WILL I HAVE TO PAY FOR ANYTHING?
No. Unless fraud has been suspected, Reliant Claims will not charge you for anything regardless of whether you win or lose. We send out our invoices to the solicitors. The solicitors work on a Conditional Fee Agreement or a ‘No Win No Fee’ as it is more commonly known. This is an agreement between you and your solicitor that means that if your claim is not successful, your solicitor is not paid for the work that has been done. If you win your claim, your solicitor will deduct his fees from the settlement, at a maximum of 25%.

WILL I HAVE TO VISIT A DOCTOR AS PART OF MY PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?

WILL I GET HELP WITH MY TREATMENT AND RECOVERY?
After you have been for your medical examination, the independent doctor will let us know what further treatment they would recommend for you. Rather than going through the NHS and getting stuck in a waiting list, we will arrange this for you privately and at no cost to you.
CAN I MAKE A PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM IF I AM A MINOR?
A parent or guardian can make a personal injury claim on your behalf, or you may wait until you reach the age of 18 to make the claim on your own.
CAN I STILL MAKE A CLAIM IF I HAVE RECOVERED FROM MY INJURIES AND THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED A WHILE AGO?
You have 3 years from the date of the accident to make a claim. Even if you have fully recovered from your injuries, you may still make a personal injury claim within the first 3 years.
