Taking the advice of an accident solicitor in Berkshire
When you call an accident solicitor in Berkshire to determine, if you qualify for a personal injury claim, they will usually give you an estimate of how much compensation you might get, if your claim is successful. It is important not to get carried away, when you’re told you could get substantial amounts of money.
The figure an accident solicitor in Berkshire will quote will just be a rough estimate based on previous cases that were either settled out of court or injury claims that were decided by a judge – and you probably won’t be told when these cases were settled, which means you could be given a rather misleading figure, something that is no longer relevant today, if the law firm doesn’t offer no-win, no-fee* services and really wants your case to earn some large legal fees.
There simply is no guarantee a claimant will get the amount originally estimated, but it is a good guideline on which claimants can base their decisions. Don’t be fooled by headline-grabbing settlements – each case is different and one person’s whiplash injury is not like the other, nor is one person’s spinal cord injury claim going to get the same amount as somebody else’s received just last year.
