If you have been having issues with bullying at work, one of the things that you might want to do is to get compensation from work for bullying. But something you should do is to get a solicitor to help you with getting the compensation. In order to get the right solicitor, there are some things that you should ask the solicitor that you’re considering so that you find the right one.
Ask your solicitor “do you have experience with this kind of case?” when trying to get compensation from work with bullying.
Advertising and competition
Solicitors are going to be hungry for lawsuits involving personal injuries. There’s a lot of advertising and competition. You should assume that the solicitor that you have chosen has handled this kind of case before. Ask for their results in their experience. Ask if you can speak with former clients. It’s important to control your consultation. Don’t get bullied or intimidated by your solicitor. You’re making the decisions.
Ask your solicitor “do you have enough time for working on my case presently?” when trying to get compensation from work for bullying.
You may think that it’s a good idea to go with the solicitor that everybody knows, but they may not have the time that’s necessary to give to you. This doesn’t happen with all solicitors, but it can happen. Before you choose the solicitor make sure they are going to be able to give you the attention that you deserve. The last thing you want is to wait around 12 to 18 months for them to file your lawsuit. The delay is going to harm you. It’s going to take you that much longer to get the money that you are entitled to. So before you make any final decisions, it’s a good idea to find out his or her workload and the amount of time they’ll be able to devote to your case.
“When will you file my claim?” when trying to get compensation from work for bullying
Ask for specific answers. A lot of solicitors don’t like working on cases until they have a deadline. A lot of viable lawsuits will sit for one to two years because there weren’t any pending limitations. The last thing you want is to risk losing your case because you waited too long to file. It’s a good idea to ask your solicitor if they will file the lawsuit within two weeks of you hiring them as your solicitor.
