Many people will not even think about making a claim for compensation as they believe the cost of a personal injury lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil is too high. They are often worried that legal bills may run into thousands of pounds, with no guaranteed chance of success at the end.
Of course, in some cases, depending on the law firm that you use, this may be true. However, if you choose to use Accident Advice Helpline to help with your claim, you may be pleasantly surprised.
Choosing the right lawyer
Because making a claim for compensation can be quite complicated at times, it is always best to choose a lawyer who knows exactly what they are doing. The field of law is huge, and if you are not careful, you may end up spending a lot of money on a solicitor who knows a little about lots of areas of the law, rather than a specialist. That is when the cost of a personal injury lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil becomes expensive. The team at Accident Advice Helpline however are specialists in personal injury cases, and have over fifteen years of experience.
No two compensation claims are the same, and each one involves a lot of work. Because the onus is on the victim to prove that someone else was to blame for the accident, we need to gather evidence. This may be from CCTV, photographs, witness statements and police reports.
Another one of the requirements for compensation is that the victim was injured. This does not necessarily mean physical injuries – psychological scars can take longer to heal in some cases. We will need to see a copy of your medical records to see the extent of your injuries, and the long term effects on your life. This will obviously have some bearing on the amount of compensation that you receive.
More about the cost of a lawyer in Merthyr Tydfil
A few years ago, anyone making a claim for compensation put themselves at risk financially. They would need to pay upfront to get a claim started, and then if they did not win, they would need to find the money to pay legal costs for both themselves and the other party. This would be really hard if they were already struggling financially – they may have had to take time off work to recover from injuries.
Because we think this is unfair, our lawyers work on a no win, no fee* basis. There is nothing to pay to get your claim started, and if you do not win, you do not have to pay the fees for the work that we have done.
