When people contact us one of the first questions they ask us is how much compensation they might be entitled to. Well, if you’re looking for a Blackburn law firm who can help you out after an accident, this is something we can help you with.
The 30-second test
Before you go looking for a Blackburn law firm, it’s always worthwhile getting your bearings and finding out as much as you can. This is why we’ve created a website which is full of useful information about almost every aspect of personal injury law. The intention behind this is to provide something which you will genuinely find useful in giving you a good solid base from which to work.
One of these is called the 30-second test. This is a free online calculator which allows you to see at a glance how much your claim might be worth. This is not a guaranteed figure, but it is something that represents a realistic vision of how much you might receive.
How we calculate compensation
We calculate compensation in the same way that the law courts do. In other words, we look at the severity of an injury first with those which are more serious naturally attracting a bigger fee than those which had a lesser impact on your quality of life. Secondly, we work out how much it cost you in terms of general expenses and lost earnings to come up with a figure that we think is appropriate.
Finding a Blackburn law firm
Once you’ve got this estimate and been through our telephone consultation the next stage is to launch a claim, and this is where things can sometimes get challenging. It’s not just a case of finding a Blackburn law firm, but a firm with the right experience for your type of claim. So if you’ve been hurt while at work, you’ll need someone with experience in employment law. They will be able to assess how much compensation you should be paid and will do everything they can to ensure you get the full amount to which you’re entitled.
Paying for a claim
Of course, every claim will depend on what the courts say, so it’s not easy to guarantee success at any stage. That’s why we work on the basis of no-win, no-fee to ensure that if things do go wrong you will not have to pay.
