If someone else’s mistake has caused an accident in which you’ve suffered an injury, you’re entitled to expect that something should be done to make amends. However, in making a successful claim – or not, as the case may be – the most important consideration will be who you choose from the available accident and injury solicitors in Torfaen. Here, we look at some of the things you should consider when selecting your lawyers.
Are they any good?
Before you proceed, it’s worth checking that their qualifications are genuine and that they are legitimate. Check for certifications which will attest to their credibility as lawyers.
More than that, you will want to know if they have been successful in the past, and the only way to do that is to read testimonials about their service. Most law firms will have a testimonials page – indeed, we have one on our own website – but you might reasonably expect that they’re unlikely to publish negative reviews on here. However, what they do offer is an insight into what it’s like to work with the firm, and of course it’s nice to know that they can find people to say nice things about them. A law firm which cannot find any people to support their service is not going to inspire too much confidence.
The cost of making a claim in Torfaen
Money will naturally be a concern for anyone. You’ll want to minimise the amount you pay out, but equally you don’t want that to mean you get a lawyer who might not be as good as you’d hoped.
There is a way that you can have both, if you choose accident and injury solicitors in Torfaen who offer no-win, no-fee*. This means that they take on the financial risk of making a claim. It represents a safety net – if the worst happens, your claim will not lumber you with money worries.
However, while no win no fee* is useful, you should still think about what you’ll pay if you win. Legal fees vary, and if you’re not careful you might be in for a nasty surprise when the bill arrives. Normally the fee will be paid out of your compensation settlement, and this in itself should not amount to any more than around 30% of your claim.
Finding accident and injury solicitors in Torfaen
Lastly, you should always make sure that the accident and injury solicitors in Torfaen you choose offer the very best level of service possible, which means choosing people who have real experience in your type of personal injury claim. The better their experience, the more likely you are to get a positive result at the end of it all.
