If you are able to find out the cost of personal injury lawyers in Newham before you proceed with a claim, this can help you to decide whether or not making a claim is a good idea for you, and whether you can afford it. If you have a good enough case for compensation, it shouldn’t really be as big of a factor as to what the cost is, as your compensation should far outweigh this.
However, in a time when you are bound to be struggling financially, knowing how much you are expected to pay out for your solicitor will be a help. Here are some ways to find out the cost of a personal injury solicitor.
Although there may be a wide variation in the listed prices of injury lawyers online, it should give you a good idea of what to expect when you approach a solicitor about handling your claim.
If you look at where the top and bottom ends of the spectrum are, it can give you an idea of what you want to go for, and help you to avoid choosing any solicitor who is too expensive, or to question why a solicitor might be too cheap.
Ask them directly
The best way for you to find out exactly how much you are going to be charged is to ask the solicitor directly how much they will charge you to make your claim.
If they are in any way shady about how much they are going to take, it may be worth finding another solicitor, or to ask for these rates to be sent to you in writing.
