Finding a law firm after an accident in Dumfries and Galloway
One thing that people might not tell you is that there is no single answer to which law firm will help after an accident that was someone else’s fault because they are all different. Some will specialise in certain areas of personal injury law while others will focus elsewhere. Therefore the first thing you should always check is that the firm you are looking at specialises in your particular type of personal injury claim. If they do not, then there is a very good chance that they might not be the right firm for your needs.
Make sure you understand costs
The one thing to be careful about is that, whether you like it or not, the chances are you will have to pay for your legal services at some point. There is no legal aid available for people who want to make personal injury claims, which means any claim represents a significant financial risk.
Some firms mitigate this by offering the chance to take out claims insurance which will protect you against any loss, but the money can take some time to come through. Therefore, a much better option is to choose someone who works on the basis of no-win, no-fee. This can reduce the risks of making a claim and ensures that if you do not win you will not have to pay any solicitors’ fees.
