When you’re searching for Brynaman accident claim solicitors there will be a number of people you might come across. Some will be reputable and professional, while others will be less so. Here’s a list of some of the characters you might encounter.
Brynaman accident claim solicitors
There are plenty of Brynaman accident claim solicitors and the vast majority of these are reputable law firms. To make sure you should aways check if they are registered with an official body such as the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority as this will help you to have a bit of faith that they are acting on the level.
You should also check that they work with your type of claim and that they have the financial resources to contest a long case. If a claim goes on for a number of years smaller firms might struggle to keep up, in which case the quality of service they can provide will decline.
You may encounter two different insurance firms – one acting on your behalf, the other for the person you’re claiming against. You should trust each of them about as far as you can comfortably spit out a rat.
Your insurance firm may suggest making a claim through a firm they work with. Their incentive for doing so is not because they have searched around and found someone who is good enough for your case, but because they get paid commission. You can probably get a better deal if you choose your own law firm.
The other side’s law firm may offer a settlement fee. However, the chances are this will be way below the amount you actually might receive if you go ahead and find a personal injury law firm to take the case forward on your behalf.
Claims management firms
These are the firms who like to cold call people to find out if they have been injured in the last three years. They won’t actually make a claim on your behalf but will try to sell your data on to the highest bidder. There have been moves against these firms with the law forbidding the use of referral fees, but they’re still clinging on for the time being.
Paying for claims
Make sure you have a good idea of how much a claim should cost. Recent guidelines mean that if you win your case you will have to pay your own success fees. However, there is a mechanism for ensuring that you don’t get lumbered with legal fees after an unsuccessful claim. It’s called ‘no win, no fee’ and it ensures finding Brynaman accident claim solicitors should never put your finances at risk.
