When you’re hurt in an accident, you may wonder what you have to do to claim compensation. Well, the answer to that can vary depending on your case. So, in this article we’ll consider some of the things that can affect your choice of claims solicitor in Laceby.
Is this a quick case?
In many cases it’s very easy to see what the outcome will be. These tend to be in instances of clear blame where the injuries are not too long lasting. Therefore, you can go with a small legal firm who will take care of all the basics. They will be suitable because they can offer you dedicated personal attention and will be able to handle a short, swift claim.
However if it takes longer then you might need a larger law firm, that has the financial resources available to fight a prolonged personal injury case. Severe cases may require the services of a law firm that can specialise in that particular condition. They will be able to offer ongoing support to fight a long claim and to help with rehabilitation.
What type of accident have you suffered?
Most law firms will tend to specialise in one type of claim or another. This means that if you’ve been hurt while at work then you’ll need someone who specialises in employment law. If, on the other hand, you were injured in a car accident, then someone who is skilled in road traffic law will be much better.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we can find a claims solicitor in Laceby who will cover every speciality. This means that no matter what happens we can help you with any type of claim.
How much do you want to pay?
As with any other service, some lawyers are more expensive than others and they often require different means of payment. Therefore, it can help you a great deal if you know how much you are going to pay at the outset.
One of the most popular ways of paying is known as ‘no win, no fee’ and for a very good reason. It represents a simple promise that if you do not win your case then you will not have to pay a single penny.
However, even if you have this option you should still make sure you know how much you will pay and at what time. For the most part, legal fees will be taken from the compensation sum that you receive. Some will charge a higher percentage than others so make sure you find out what this will be before you commit to going forward.
