The potential cost of claiming in Northamptonshire should always be minimal when compared to the compensation you could be awarded. It is important that you know what the potential cost is, and what you could be left with before you decide to make a claim. The last thing you want to do is run the risk of being left out of pocket when making a claim.
Establishing the cost of claiming in Northamptonshire
When you decide to make a claim the first thing you need to is speak to a lawyer. This will help you determine whether or not you even meet the requirements to make a claim as there are certain criteria.
Once you know that you can claim if you want to do so, you need to speak to your lawyer about how they will help you get the best outcome that you are entitled to. They will speak to you about the extent of your injuries and the impact they have had on you. They will be able to take in to account any financial losses you have incurred as a result of your accident such as those resulting from lost income due to time off work.
You may even have had to pay for medical treatment or transport to medical appointments. Perhaps you have had to pay for professional child care or dog walking services if you are unable to manage these things on your own as a result of your accident.
With all of this information your solicitor will have a good idea of how much your claim could be worth. Of course the final value will vary but a guideline is better than nothing. Your solicitor will then be able to talk to you about their costs.
Some solicitors may be prepared to agree a set fee – however, if you do this you will have to pay that fee regardless of the outcome of your claim. If your claim loses you will still be liable and this can leave you seriously out of pocket.
