Finding out the cost of a lawyer in Pontypool can be critical when it comes to helping you to decide whether or not you want to make a claim for compensation after an accident which is not your fault.
The cost of a lawyer can differ greatly depending on a number of factors, all of which you need to take into consideration so that you can decide whether or not you have a good enough situation to make a claim of your own. Here are some of the things to ask so that you know that you have the true cost of a lawyer before you decide to work with them on your claim.
How much is the fee?
The fee may not be able to be calculated before the claim has begun, as your lawyer will not know exactly how long your case is going to take to process, or how much work will need to go into it. However, they should be able to give you some idea of what to expect from the final fee, and how it will be taken, such as directly from the compensation you are awarded, or whether you need to pay this yourself.
Look out for fees coming out as a percentage of the compensation you get, as this can help you to avoid going out of pocket.
What are the extra costs?
You can’t simply sit back and relax if you know that the fee isn’t very high, as there may be hidden costs which you will be expected to pay.
If your claim is successful then the other party may be asked to pay the costs, but there is a chance that you will be expected to pay for these.
