    Compensation for fractured collar bone


    A fractured collarbone is very painful to have to deal with. It is also a very inconvenient injury to have. That is why a lot of people seek compensation for a fractured collar bone when they have been injured. Many people also look for a solicitor to help them with their claim. However, it can be hard to find the right person to help you. Below are some tips that you can use to help you find the right solicitor to help you with your claim.

    Look for solicitors that offer no-win, no-fee when you want compensation for a fractured collar bone

    When you are involved in a compensation claim, one of the things that you should do is look for solicitors who only charge you based on a contingency.  What this simply means is that if you don’t get paid, they also won’t be paid.  The fee that he gets is going to come from anything that you are going to get for the injuries you suffered.  Be sure that you clearly understand the solicitor’s payment structure before signing a solicitor’s retainer agreement.

    Beware of the ambulance chasers

    The main goal of these kinds of solicitors is to get many cases for personal injury that are really minor and get them quick settlements. The profit that they are going to get is from the high turnovers that they are getting.  Naturally, they aren’t going to give the cases that they are taking a lot of time or effort. They are simply in it for the money. If you want to get a settlement quickly, these kinds of solicitors are the ones that you should choose. Just remember that you are not going to get a lot of money when you use one of them.

    Make sure that you’re comfortable with your solicitor

    It’s essential that you find a solicitor that you will be comfortable with. Keep in mind that this person is going to be helping you with some very intimate problems, depending on what kind of case you have. So you want to be sure that you feel comfortable talking with them.  Sometimes women feel more comfortable with women solicitors, some men feel more comfortable with men. Sometimes it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you can talk to the person and that you have confidence in them.
