If you are wondering about the cost of personal injury lawyers in Pontypool, to help you to decide whether or not you want to make a claim for compensation or not, one of the ways that you can find out is simply to ask a personal injury lawyer or law firm directly. Many people worry about comparing prices online and finding out from ex clients how much the service really costs, but you may find it quicker and easier just to ask.
Here are some of the things you can ask your lawyer to find out more about the cost.
How much will you take?
If you are working with a no-win, no-fee lawyer then they should take their fee as a percentage of the compensation awarded to you. Your lawyer should be able to tell you this percentage right away, as well as giving you some idea as to how much you can make your claim for.
This will help you to work out how much money you are looking to pay your lawyer, and how much money you should be left with at the end.
What are the other fees?
One of the things which helps less honest lawyers to take more money from you than you expect is court fees and other fees relating to the claim. In some cases lawyers can pocket a little extra cash from you if they have hidden fees which they are not upfront about.
You should ask your lawyer to provide you with a full list of costs and fees, in writing, before you decide to work with them.
