Advice on hiring a solicitor in Cheltenham after an accident
When choosing a solicitor to handle your claim for personal injury compensation, there are a few key qualities that you’ll need to look for. As personal injury specialist lawyers ourselves, we’ve got a good idea of what type of solicitor is best to help people after they’ve been injured. Here are some qualities and attributes to look out for:
- The advice they offer: Is it helpful, is it reliable, and how much does it cost?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we tailor the advice we offer to our clients. All our advisors are professionally trained, so know what they’re talking about, and the information on our website is extremely helpful to those just looking to read through some information. Best of all, all of the helpline advice we offer is completely free.
- Specialism and experience: Do they specialise, and how long have they been practicing?
As we’ve just mentioned, at Accident Advice Helpline we are specialist personal injury lawyers and have been practicing in this industry since the year 2000 – giving us more than fifteen years’ experience dealing with personal injury claims.
- Fees: Do they charge high upfront fees? What agreements do they offer?
All of our cases are taken on a no win, no fee basis. What this means for you is that there is no high upfront fee just for registering your claim, and in the unlikely event that your claim fails, all your legal costs are covered.
