Our advice on hiring a lawyer in East Dorset
When it comes to hiring a lawyer for a personal injury claim, there are some key questions you should ask before making your mind up. These are as follows:
- What experience do you have in the industry? Experience is imperative. You will want a lawyer that has been practising personal injury law for many years now, and someone that has a good success rate in the industry. However, you will also want to make sure that their experience applies to your type of claim. There are many different types of personal injury claims, from workplace accidents to road traffic incidents. Look for a lawyer that has a good track record for securing compensation in cases of a similar nature to yours.
- How much do you charge? What payment structure do you work to? Of course, you will need to make sure you can afford the services of the lawyer in question. It is not only important to discover how much the solicitor charges, but you should also discover how payment works. It is always a good idea to go for a solicitor that is happy to work to a no-win no-fee payment agreement. This means that you will only need to pay legal fees if your case is a success, which will minimise financial risk significantly.
- Can I read some testimonials from your previous customers? It is always advisable to read reviews that have been left by previous clients, as this is the best way to get an honest insight into the level of service you are likely to benefit from. If a solicitor is not willing to show you the testimonials, then this should be a big red flag.
