If you’ve been involved in an accident at work, you’ve suffered a slip, trip or fall or you’ve been injured in a car crash, you may be thinking about making a personal injury claim, but how much does it cost to claim compensation and is it worth getting a law firm to handle your case for you?
How much does it cost to make a personal injury claim?
The cost of making a personal injury claim varies according to the nature of the case, the solicitor’s fees and the outcome. Different firms have varying fees and you will generally pay more for an experienced solicitor. Some firms operate on a no win, no fee* basis, which means that you won’t pay the solicitor’s fees if the case is unsuccessful; you may however be liable to pay court fees. If your case is successful, the defendant may have to cover most of your basic legal costs; however, it is a good idea to check out all the possible financial eventualities before you begin the claims process.
Is it worth getting advice from a law firm?
If you’ve been through a stressful period due to work-related illness, a car crash injury or worries about future employment or giving up work, the last thing you want is to try and battle through a legal case without the advice of trained lawyers.
