For many people, personal injury claims in Carmarthen can feel almost as dangerous as the accident itself. That’s because there are plenty of people out there who are looking to take advantage of you in this vulnerable condition. Here we look at how you can make sure that the people you find to help you make a personal injury claim are the right people for your needs.
People to Avoid
If you’ve been injured you may find yourself approached by people who say they want to help you make a claim. These cold callers should be avoided like the plague.
There are also a host of claims management firms. They are better, but not by much. They will appear to be a law firm and will say they can help you make a claim with minimum effort from you.
But it won’t actually be them making the claim. Instead they will simply pass the claim onto someone else who will handle everything for them. As the poor forgotten client, you may not be consulted about what’s happening and you may have no idea about which firm is handling the case. Occasionally people aren’t even fully informed about how much they are paying which can lead to a nasty shock down the line.
The other side’s insurance firm are also worth watching out for. They may make a quick offer of compensation which looks like a great deal. No hassle, no going to court, but they benefit greatly from reducing the amount you receive. You should always consult a lawyer and make sure that you get the full amount to which you should be entitled to.
Making Personal Injury Claims in Carmarthen
But who should that lawyer be and where should you find them? The first task is to make sure that anyone you approach is perfectly legitimate. You can do this by looking for references from organisations such as the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and the Law Society. These are badges of honour that no firm should ever be without. If you can’t see information about this on any of the sales literature they provide make sure you ask them.
Paying your Way
Perhaps the most important thing is to check the price. There is no legal aid available for the vast majority of personal injury claims which can cause major problems. If you lose your case, you could find yourself rapidly sinking into debt which is enough to make anyone concerned. However, if you choose Accident Advice Helpline to make personal injury claims in Carmarthen that shouldn’t happen because we work on the basis of no win no fee*.
