    Our advice on hiring a lawyer in Epping Forest

    When it comes to hiring a solicitor, there are several key things you need to look out for. You should go for someone with experience and make sure that they have handled cases similar to yours in the past. You will also want to read reviews that have been left by past clients to ensure the solicitor is reliable. A no-win no-fee solicitor comes highly recommended too, as you will only need to pay legal fees if your case is a success if you go down this route, and, therefore, you are offered a degree of monetary protection.

    How to strengthen your case

    There are various steps you can take to ensure your case is as strong as possible, such as:

    • See a medical professional – You will really struggle to find any solicitor that will take on your case if you have not seen a medical professional. This is because the medical report provided by your doctor is the most imperative piece of evidence when it comes to any type of personal injury claim. Without it, there is no proof of your injuries.
    • Get contact details – You should try to get the contact details of the person that caused the accident as well as anyone that witnessed it. Witness statements can strengthen your case considerably.
    • Keep proof of any expenses – Last but not least, you should keep proof of any costs you have incurred because of the accident and your injuries, as you can claim for these as special damages. Examples include the likes of vehicle repair costs, childcare expenses, treatment costs, loss of income, travel expenses and such like.
