We’ve all heard many horror stories about people who have been forced into debt because of legal bills. That’s why at the Accident Advice Helpline we make sure that making personal injury claims in Bromley will not put you in financial difficulty.
Trouble after an accident
A serious injury can leave you with mounting financial problems. If it’s bad enough to force you off work for a long period of time you may have to do without an income. This coupled with the fact that you may be facing all sorts of additional financial demands such as medical treatment can mean that your problems quickly mount.
Cost of making a claim
Those financial worries might appear to be compounded when you consider that legal aid is not available for most personal injury claims.
This means you’ll have to find the money yourself and that can be highly challenging, unless you choose a firm which offers no win no fee.
You should think of no win no fee as representing a shot to nothing. You can make a claim safe in the knowledge that if things go wrong you will not have to pay out anything.
It’s a bit like having a safety net. Previously, the biggest concern facing people when considering making a personal injury claim was how they were going to pay for their claim if it was unsuccessful.
That’s a reasonable concern because even the most straightforward of claims is not always guaranteed to be successful. If you were to lose, then you could find yourself seriously exposed.
No win no fee is not the only approach. There are others such as claims insurance which covers you if you lose, but this will still require paying premiums which means it hardly qualifies as no win no fee.
Making personal injury claims in Bromley
You should also make sure that no win no fee does not become your sole qualifying criteria when deciding which firm you would like to use. There will be many people out there offering all sorts of options, and some will be better than others. Aside from the universal rule that not all lawyers are as good as one another, you’ll also need to consider their areas of expertise when deciding who to choose.
When making personal injury claims in Bromley, many people make an easy mistake of simply looking for people in the local area. This can be a mistake as it could mean you don’t find people who have real value to add.
