Questions to ask accident lawyers in Bridgend
Whether you are searching for local accident lawyers in Bridgend or lawyers further afield, there are some crucial points to look out for. Here is our quick guide to the questions your potential lawyers should be able to answer.
Do you have an area of expertise?
Your lawyer should be able to tell you that their field of expertise is personal injury law. Ideally, they would specialise in the type of accident or injury that you have suffered. Remember that even high street lawyers are specialists. You are not likely to get the best compensation award from a lawyer that specialises in family law, contracts or intellectual property.
Do you have a successful track record?
You will only get one chance to make your compensation claim. If your lawyer is not successful, the chance will have gone. So your lawyer needs to be able to demonstrate to you that they have a history of winning their cases.
Will you offer me a no-win, no-fee* agreement?
A good lawyer will know that they can make a success of your claim. So they will be happy to take your case on a no win no fee* basis. Watch out for lawyers who ask for a deposit or an upfront fee, as a good lawyer should not need to cover their loses by risking your money.
Will you support all aspects of my claim?
You need to decide what you expect from your lawyer. If you want them to arrange your medical appointments for you, check that they will. If you want your paperwork filed in for you, ready to check and sign, make sure that this is a service that they include. If not, be prepared to look elsewhere.
Will I need to make appointments to see you?
If you are looking at a local lawyer, you may find that they expect you to take time off work to attend face to face appointments in office hours. But there are lawyers who will deal with your case entirely over the phone. Decide which communication method you want to use and ask for it.
How can I check your reputation?
Make sure that you can see third party evidence of your lawyer’s previous performance. This could be word of mouth for a local lawyer or website reviews for a company. Ideally, look for a patron who will stand by your choice, as they have staked their own reputation on their endorsement.
