If you are making a compensation claim for a serious accident which you feel that you deserve compensation for, you may want to ask your solicitor what they consider your compensation claims value in Newcastle-under-Lyme to be.
This will help you to decide whether or not it is worth making a claim for compensation, or if you will end up out of pocket doing it. Even if you would make money, there are a few things to consider to help you to decide if it is really worth making a claim or not.
How much will your solicitor cost?
Even if your solicitor is happy to work on a 100% no win no fee* basis, meaning that they take their fee out of the money that you are awarded from a successful claim, you still need to know in advance how much this is likely to be.
Your injury lawyer fees should be a percentage of what you are awarded, and you should work out exactly how much this will leave you with so that after paying your solicitor and any other fees you are still making money.
Will you get expenses?
There are various expenses which build up over time following a serious accident. You really want your compensation claim to cover these more than just to give you some form of compensation for the injuries you have suffered, as it is the expenses that are going to cause you to go out of pocket as a result of your accident, more than anything else.
Speak to your solicitor to find out whether or not you can get expenses.
