    Accident claims solicitors in Port Talbot

    We love to make things more complicated for ourselves in this country and nowhere is this more true than when we go to court. There is a host of legal terminology which can confuse the brightest of minds, so it’s no wonder many people feel intimidated about making a personal injury claim. However, at Accident Advice Helpline, we have an excellent track record of making the complicated simple. So, if you’re looking for accident claims solicitors in Port Talbot, here are some things you might need to know.

    Going to court

    Most personal injury law suits are heard in the small claims courts. However, if you’re feeling worried about appearing in court, the chances are you will not have to. The majority of cases do not go as far as court because the other side will settle before it gets that far. If their own legal team concluded they are unlikely to win any case if it goes to court, they will offer you a sum to end the process then and there. It makes sense from their point of view as it saves on legal fees. You’ll have to decide whether or not you think that sum is appropriate for your claim. You can get advice from your lawyer on whether or not you should accept.

    No-win, no-fee

    You may have heard a lot about this term when searching for accident claims solicitors in Port Talbot. It arose towards the end of the 90s as legal aid was eventually removed from personal injury claims. It is also known as the Conditional Fee Arrangement and includes a deal whereby legal fees are only charged in the event of a successful claim.

    It provides a safety net for people who may not have inexhaustible finances which ensures they are not left out of pocket because they decided to pursue their rights in a court of law. At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve always worked on the basis of no win no fee, so when you work with us, you can do so with complete confidence that you’re making a risk-free claim.

    Assessing compensation with accident claims solicitors in Port Talbot

    One of the more common questions we get is ‘how much compensation might I receive?’ It’s never possible to be entirely certain as this will be down to the decision of the courts. However, we can make an assessment based on what we know about your case. Compensation is decided on the basis of how badly you’ve been injured and how much money this has cost you. This includes medical fees, travel expenses and any lost wages. We bring this together to come up with an estimated fee.
