Choosing an accident solicitor in Barham
If you have suffered an injury in an accident that was caused by someone else, you need to consider making a claim for compensation. Claiming compensation can be very straightforward as long as you have the right support. And good support for your compensation claim starts with engaging a good accident solicitor.
When it comes to looking for an accident solicitor, Barham isn’t any different than anywhere else. No matter where in the country you are, you will face the same dilemma – how to make the right choice of accident solicitor in Barham that is best for you.
How to spot a good accident solicitor
A good accident solicitor in Barham or anywhere else in UK will be able to demonstrate that they can obtain the very best result for you from your accident claim. When you are looking at an accident solicitor in Barham and locally, go through this checklist to make sure that they are going to measure up as a good accident solicitor.
- ‘No win, no fee*’ – when the legal aid system was changed over a decade ago, a new system was introduced allowing solicitors to offer you a no win no fee* route to making your claim. This is the safest way for you to pursue your accident claim, offering you the chance to engage the very best solicitors at no financial risk to yourself.
- No upfront costs – a good accident solicitor should never ask you for an upfront fee. Any solicitor asking for a fee is clearly not confident in their ability to get a positive result from your claim, which means they are not the right solicitor for you.
- Excellent track record of recent, relevant cases – it is ok for you to ask questions of a solicitor you are considering working with. After all, you are engaging them in a potentially long-term professional relationship. So as your solicitor what kind of cases they have fought before, why kind of outcomes they achieved and what they think they can offer you on terms of experience and support.
- Out of hours support arrangement – many high street solicitors work on a Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 arrangement. While this works for some people, you may feel that you prefer to have support available on your terms, not theirs. If you are working full time, you don’t want to be trying to make calls in your lunch hour so if you would prefer to have support an guidance available at a time that suits you, make sure you seek out a service that offers you a 24 hour helpline.
