If you have been involved in an accident and have been injured as a result, then you could be able to make a claim for compensation. If you do decide to pursue such a claim that it may be advisable to seek the legal advice and support of an accident lawyer in Tandridge.
Legally speaking, you are fully within your rights to represent yourself when it comes to seeking personal injury compensation; however, there are many drawbacks associated with this.
Benefits of using an accident lawyer in Tandridge
Many people assume that if they use a professional accident lawyer in Tandridge, or other legal professional to help secure compensation they will be worse off financially. Of course, the reality of whether or not this is true very much depends on the agreement you have with the professional in question.
For example, some law firms may ask that you pay a deposit, or take out an insurance policy with them to protect them financially in case you are not awarded compensation. While the sums involved may not be huge, this is still an expense you may well prefer not to have to pay up front to start your claim.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we do not ask for anything up front from you. This is because we offer a no-win, no-fee arrangement for all our clients. Essentially, this means that if we are unable to secure you compensation as a result of your claim, then you will not have to pay anything to us in terms of legal fees. There is literally no financial risk associated with making a claim with us.
Of course, were you to win compensation then a small percentage of your compensation would be awarded to your solicitor. This is occasionally why people prefer to represent themselves as that way they get to keep their compensation. However, there are various other costs associated with making a claim, and these cannot be recovered if you lose your case. Strictly speaking, you are therefore more likely to secure higher rates of compensation if you use a professional service than if you do not.
