How do I claim for personal injury?

We were hit by a car from behind. The other driver has admitted liability but I don’t know whether I should claim on our insurance for personal injury because I don’t want my premium to go up for any reason. Do I go through a no-win no-fee company?

You cannot claim via your own insurer for your personal injury, as your insurance only covers your car and not you. If you have legal assistance with your policy then you can either claim through that, use a solicitor, a no-win no-fee firm or directly from the at-fault insurer. I would suggest either using your legal assistance if you have it, or contact a solicitor directly.
