    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Compensation solicitor in Ladybank

    Finding a compensation solicitor in Ladybank who can really help you make a successful claim can be a big challenge. Here are some of the rules you should follow to ensure you have the best chance possible.

    Rule one: Act fast

    The biggest mistake anyone makes is to delay looking into making a claim. The result is that they can end up missing out on the compensation to which they were entitled. Under UK law there is a three year limit on any claim. That means you’re only allowed to wait three years after an accident has happened until you make a personal injury claim – otherwise your case will be invalidated. That might seem a long time, but it is all too easy to have your attention taken by all the usual things that can distract you at this time – and so you do not look into whether or not you can claim until it’s too late.

    Rule two: Know your stuff

    The next thing to think about is whether you know your territory well enough or not. Do some reading and find out more about what your rights are before you even speak to a lawyer. You’re not going to become an expert over night, but what you can do is get your knowledge up to as high a level as possible.

    Accident Advice Helpline’s website contains a huge amount of information about every aspect of personal injury law, so spend some time reading this before you start.

    Rule three: Think ahead

    One of the things we offer at Accident Advice Helpline is the ability to get an early quote about your likely compensation fee. Though only an estimate, it can however be used to set expectations and could be useful to assess any settlement offers that comes your way.

    Rule four: Think about the money

    There is no legal aid available so you will have to finance this yourself. Shop around for the best fee structure, and look at certain deals which can offset the financial risk. There are some options such as insurance which safeguards against losing and no win no fee, which means your lawyer will waive any fees unless they manage to win your case.

    This is something that Accident Advice Helpline has offered since we first started in the year 2000. For us it’s an integral part of what we do and is a very important tool in giving you the reassurance that whatever happens you won’t have to pay unless you win.

    Finding a compensation solicitor in Ladybank

    But before you go out and find the first no win no fee compensation solicitor in Ladybank you can find, you should always stop to read the small print. Sometimes no win no fee is not all it’s cracked up to be with small costs leaking through.

    Accident Advice Helpline offer a fully transparent 100% guaranteed no win no fee policy. So, whatever happens you’ll only have to pay if you win.
