Celebrities are everywhere these days and there seems to be an assumption that you can sell almost anything if you get a smiling semi famous nobody in front of the camera. And even the world of personal injury law is not immune to this – just look at any advert you see on the TV now. However, if you’re looking for the best legal advice in Dover then you’ll want information about making a claim which is a little more useful than that.
Now, you’ll notice if you go to our website that we have our own celebrity; Esther Rantzen who acts as the face of the firm. So, we’re hardly people to throw stones in relation to the question of celebrity endorsements, you might think. However, it depends on what the celebrity in question is famous for. If it’s someone who was once a half decent tennis star or perhaps used to be on Big Brother then you’re struggling, but we chose Esther because she has a track record of being one of the leading proponents of consumer rights in the country. She’s made her name based on this and getting approval from her represents a huge tick in the box that we must be doing something right.
But even this endorsement isn’t the be all and end all so it’s always important to do your own digging. Here are things that you should be looking for.
Are they accredited? You can see all our credentials on our contact us page.
Are they a law firm? Many firms simply take down your details and pass them onto a third party. We’re a law firm who offer dedicated legal services and lawyers who are appropriate for claiming compensation in Dover no matter what type of accident you’ve suffered.
Are they expensive? There is no limit on how much law firms can charge and because most take a percentage of your compensation award, those bills can be hidden. In general they should take no more than 25% of any award as part of their bills, so make sure you know how much you’ll be paying and at what time.
Paying for the best legal advice in Dover
Aside from all this the biggest thing you need to look at is whether you can actually afford to make a claim. There is no legal aid available for the majority of personal injury cases in the UK which means the chances are you’ll have to pay at some point. That can be tricky, so at Accident Advice Helpline we offer ‘no win, no fee’.
This means getting the best legal advice in Dover is no longer a major risk and you can go ahead without worrying about your future financial security.
