Finding compensation in Epsom and Ewell involves working across quite a large area. As such, finding the best person for your particular requirements can be a challenge. Here we’ll examine some of the qualities you should look for in a lawyer.
Are they local?
It is helpful to have someone based nearby to help you claim compensation in Epsom and Ewell as it’s more convenient and they will find it easier to go to the local small claims court if that turns out to be necessary.
But it is not the be all and end all. What matters more is the area of speciality and the quality of the lawyer involved. You don’t want anything penalising your attempts to claim compensation and if you can’t find a good lawyer to claim compensation in Epsom and Ewell then it could be worth looking further afield.
Are they any good?
If you choose any service these days you’re going to run some form of due diligence over them and that starts with looking into their background. A quick search on the internet can reveal quite a lot about any law firm. You can find out if they had any problems in the past and if their clients like them. Everyone will have a few bad comments made about them, but if this is the norm then it’s something you should be wary of.
You should also look for their accreditations to make sure they are as good as they say they are. You can see our credentials on our contact us page.
What do they specialise in?
Personal injury law is not something you should involve yourself in if you don’t know much about a particular subject. Even the best personal injury lawyers will not have expertise covering the entirety of any single claim so it’s always worth finding out if they have worked on your type of case before. If not, then it’s a good idea to find a different lawyer to help you out.
Paying for compensation in Epsom and Ewell
It’s also important to find out how much they cost. Charges vary across the spectrum and some offer forms of ‘no win, no fee’.
This is an attractive option because it reduces the risk of making a claim. All of a sudden claiming compensation in Epsom and Ewell will not mean that you’re risking financial ruin if you do not win.
If you do win then charges will typically come out of your compensation settlement. Again, this can vary but it shouldn’t be any more than around 25% of your overall compensation settlement. If they want any more than that then it might be a good idea to turn them down.
