Weighing up the cost of personal injury lawyers in Nottingham versus the perks of making a claim in the first place can seem complicated and overwhelming when you are dealing with the fallout from a serious accident.
It is this issue which can put some people off of making a claim at all, particularly as they feel that they need to act fast. You actually have up to three years to make your claim after a serious accident, so here are some of the ways you can decide whether or not it is worth you making a claim, even against the cost of an injury lawyer.
If you cannot return to work
If your injuries mean that it could be a long time before you will be able to return to work, or if you feel that the nature of your work means that you will never again be able to go into that line of work, making a claim for compensation can help you to get through the period when you are unable to work.
Not only this, but it can provide you with some form of vindication to help you to accept what has happened.
If the accident was clearly the fault of the other person
If your accident was obviously the fault of another person, and there is plenty of evidence to back this up, it is always worth you making a claim for compensation, as there is a much smaller chance of it being denied.
If you are still unsure, speak to an injury lawyer first to discuss with them how likely it is that your claim will be successful.
Easing the cost of personal injury lawyers in Nottingham
One of the best ways of easing the burden of the cost of personal injury lawyers in Nottingham, is to make a no win no fee claim. This means working with a lawyer who only takes their fee if you make your claim successfully, and then takes this fee as a percentage of the money that you are awarded.
This way you do not end up out of pocket, and are simply able to take whatever is leftover instead of ever having to pay out money that you might not have freely available. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, or you can text “claim365” to 88010 and the team will be more than happy to get you started on a claim, teaming you with a lawyer who will be able to keep you updated as your claim progresses.
