Personal injury law is a complex and intricate world, but it’s still surprising to see how many people make common mistakes which reduce their chances of making a claim. Of these, one of the most damaging is asking the wrong questions – or sometimes not asking questions at all. So, for anyone looking for compensation, here are some of the things you should be asking, when looking for the best lawyers in Coedpoeth.
How much do you charge?
This one seems simple, but you’d be surprised how often it’s neglected. People often assume that there are set fees for personal injury lawyers. While this is sometimes the case with the law in Scotland it’s not what happens elsewhere in the UK.
Law firms are allowed to set their own fee structure which means there will be significant variations in what one firm charges over another. The secret, as in anything else is to shop around and see what’s out there.
The worst thing you can do is just go ahead and make assumptions because if you do, you’re setting yourself up for a nasty surprise later on.
Have you done this before?
Again this is a seemingly obvious question, but one that needs to be asked. Different claims require different skills, so you need to have the right lawyer on your side to fight on your behalf. If you don’t have that then the chances are you’ll have less chance of winning and even if you do, you may not receive the full level of compensation to which you’re entitled.
Do you offer no win no fee*?
The idea of no win no fee* is extremely common these days and most people tend to make claims this way. The obvious benefit is that it reduces the financial risks associated with making a claim. You need not worry if you have the money in your bank account because if you don’t win you don’t pay – and if you do win then your compensation will absorb the compensation.
How much compensation can I receive?
