It’s a little known fact that of the thousands of people who get Basingstoke and Deane accident claim solicitors to help them with a case, a significant portion of them will be under-compensated without even knowing it. This is because claims can be complicated and you’re never entirely certain if you’re getting a good deal. For this reason we thought we’d look at some of the things which could affect your chances of winning your case.
Finding the wrong Basingstoke and Deane, accident claim solicitors
One area that people fall down is in their choice of lawyers. We’re not going to look at the danger of choosing disreputable firms, that exists in any industry, but more in finding professional law firms which are simply not the best ones for your case.
This might happen if someone has been recommended a law firm in the past. Perhaps a friend who they trust has been in a similar situation and recommends a firm who has helped them. The problem is that no two claims are identical and what worked for your friend may not work for you.
To give yourself the best chance of winning any case it’s incredibly important that you have a lawyer who has experience in the type of accident you’ve suffered. An injury in the street will be different from one in the workplace and some conditions have long lasting effects which could require a real expert in that type of condition. It should say on a law firm’s marketing material what they have worked on and specialise in but it’s always worth double checking to be certain.
Not providing enough information
We can also only help you if we have all the information available. People often under estimate the extent of their injuries, and if that happens we won’t be in a very good position to help you out. This is why it’s so important to tell us as much as possible, from how badly you’ve been injured to what evidence you have to back your claim up. This is important as the more evidence you have the better your chances of a successful outcome.
Accepting an offer too early
Some people also accept an insurance firm’s payout offer way too early. They are incentivised to reduce the amount of compensation you can actually claim, so they will make an initial offer which is way below the amount you can actually claim in an attempt to minimise the damage they sustain. By choosing Basingstoke and Deane, accident claim solicitors you ensure you have people on your side who are experts in personal injury law and will do their best to help you make a successful claim.
