Frequently Asked Questions

While Amelans are free to conduct claims in both England and Wales, please note that as a firm of English lawyers we have no jurisdiction to conduct litigation in Scotland or Ireland. However, we do have relationships with firms in these jurisdictions who can assist. These firms are aware that our marketing attracts claims outside our jurisdiction and thus contribute to our marketing budget.
The level of compensation is completely dependent upon the medical evidence, therefore we are unable to predict the amount you will receive when we take your case on. However, at some point you will attend a medical examination, and when we receive the medical report we will then send you our opinion of how much your claim is worth.
No, we only handle personal injury cases.
No. We are a national firm and have personnel and agents all over the country. We will visit you in your home or place of work, if you wish.
You are entitled to claim for all losses incurred as a direct result of your accident. This includes loss of earnings, loss of future earnings, taxi fares, damage to clothing, cost of care etc
Amelans work on a “no win, no fee” basis. Simply, you will not be charged if your claim is unsuccessful. No win no fee is a term used to describe an agreement between a lawyer and the injured person. It states that the client cannot be charged if their personal injury compensation claim is unsuccessful. Typically, customers pay 25% of the amount that is recovered. This can vary and maybe more or less. Termination fees may apply if you fail to co-operate with your lawyer. Each case is different and your solicitor will discuss this with you at the onset of your case.
Each case is different, so our lawyers will assess each case on an individual basis. If you have no case… then we will tell you. It is not in your interest or our interest to run a case that we do not feel will succeed.
Generally you have three years from the date of injury to make a claim. If the accident involved a minor (under 18) then the three years does not start until the minor’s 18th birthday. There are other exceptions to this three-year rule, which we can advise on when instructed.
This will depend entirely upon the circumstances of the case. A simple road traffic accident can be settled within a matter of months, whereas more serious injuries take longer. It would be inappropriate to settle your case, before we can anticipate your full recovery time. Once we have carried out initial investigations into your case, we will be in a better position to anticipate how long it will take. You can be assured that Amelans will not delay your claim.
We are a firm of solicitors with a national reputation in personal injury. We do not employ “middlemen”, nor do we try to sell you loans or credit.
