Can you bring a claim yourself?

With lawcats toolkits, yes you can.

IS IT POSSIBLE FOR SOMEONE WITH NO LEGAL BACKGROUND TO OBTAIN THE AMOUNT OF COMPENSATION THEIR INJURY ENTITLES THEM TO?

My name is Katie Robinson, I’m a graduate legal executive and as well as having a Masters Degree in Law and a Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, I have been working in the English Legal System since 2010. Over these years I’ve had the opportunity to help many people obtain compensation after being in a accident, sort out estates and resolve employment issues. Over the last two years I’ve used that experience to craft the tool-kits you will find on this site.

Tool-kits that can help guide you to bringing your claim yourself, raise an issue with your employer, and sort out an estate, all with no legal background.

But I don’t expect you to take my word for it, which is why I’m making the tool-kits available at half their normal price!

Now because the LawCat tool kits are customized depending on the type of claim you want to bring. You first need to select the right toolkit for you below.

Go ahead and do this right now, even if you’re just curious, as these offers won’t be here forever.

WHY I MADE THESE TOOLKITS

In 2013 our legal system changed, before April 2013 Claimants could have their claim taken on by a legal professional under a No Win No Fee Agreement. Under these contracts, the Claimant would keep 100% of their compensation, and their solicitor would recover their fees from the losing Defendant.

NOW THAT HAS ALL CHANGED.

Now the legal fees come in part from the Claimant. Up to 25% of a Claimant’s compensation can be used to cover legal fees. This not only means less compensation for Claimant’s but it also greatly reduces the chance of a legal professional taking on your case.

This means a lot of people just like you are losing access to legal advice, while the Defendants keep their in-house solicitors. This means Claimants, with no legal knowledge or experience, are going up against seasoned professionals to try and get justice.

I DECIDED TO DO WHAT I COULD TO TIP THE BALANCE A BIT. 

Over the last two years, I built these toolkits, using my knowledge and experience of Road Traffic Accident Claims.

I’m going to show you everything you need to know all in one place.

 

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“The no-nonsense explanation I got from LawCat really helped me get a handle on my problem and understand what my legal position was.”

Sherlock, M

---------------------------------

"I approached LawCat for advice regarding the intricacies of XXX law, as a person with mental health issues I found it overwhelming to look into on my own, and Kate/LawCat took great lengths to ensure I understood the details of my position and the law surrounding it by explaining everything really clearly, in Plain English! This really alleviated my fears and anxieties regarding the situation I was in, and allowed me to choose the best course of action for me. Nothing was too much trouble, and should I need legal help in the future, LawCat will be my first stop."

Ms Goodacre

“I was very pleased with the response I got from LawCat, the clear explanation really helped me understand what steps I needed to take to resolve my issue.”
