FAQ about hiring an accident solicitor in East Lothian
Are you thinking about hiring an accident solicitor in East Lothian? If so, you will undoubtedly have several questions that need answered. Hopefully this post will provide you with the information you are looking for.
How do I know if I need to hire an accident solicitor in East Lothian?
Knowing whether you should make a personal injury claim is not always easy, as there is a lot of conflicting information on the Internet. Nevertheless, you need to be able to prove three things in order to claim. You need to show that the incident was not your fault. Moreover, the accident must have happened within the past three years and you must have seen a doctor for your injuries. If you can prove this to be true, you should proceed with your claim.
I don’t have any money to hire an accident solicitor… Is there anything I can do?
Yes – you should go for a solicitor offering a no win no fee* service. If you do this then you will not need any money to start making a claim. Moreover, you will pay in relation to the outcome of your case, so financial risk is diminished as well. All of our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis here at Accident Advice Helpline, so this is something you don’t need to worry about.
How much compensation will my solicitor win for me?
This is impossible to say. If an accident solicitor in East Lothian is promising you a set amount of compensation, then they are misleading you. Of course they can give you an estimate. But nothing is guaranteed. Naturally, the more serious your injury is, the more money you can expect to receive.
Will I have to go to court if I make a personal injury claim?
It is unlikely. Whilst we cannot say for certain, the chances are that you won’t have to go to court. In fact, fewer than three per cent of personal injury cases actually result in a trial. In most instances they can be settled over the phone.
