Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have heard more than a few stories of people not claiming compensation for incidents when they could have claimed it – simply because they believe that the cost of a solicitor in the Isles of Scilly is too high. On this page, we are going to put this rumour to bed, and demonstrate that the cost may be lower than you first thought.
What is the cost of a solicitor in the Isles of Scilly?
This will be dependent on a number of different factors. The experience of the lawyer that you are working with will certainly have a role to play in terms of the cost of a solicitor in the Isles of Scilly. In addition to this, the complexity of your case will also have an impact. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we like to keep things simple. All of our lawyers operate on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis.
This, essentially, means that the financial obligations of your compensation claim will fall on us. This ensures that everybody who is entitled to claim compensation can do so. After all, nobody should have their access to legal representation limited by the amount of money that they have currently sitting in their bank account.
Can you work with Accident Advice Helpline?
Now, obviously, due to the way in which we work, we can’t take on every compensation claim that comes our way. Since the financial obligation is on us, we need to know that the cases that we are representing have a reasonable chance of being successful. This is why we have a ‘vetting’ process in place. You will need to ensure that your case meets the following three guidelines:
- You must have been injured. Accident Advice Helpline only deals with personal injury compensation claims. Now, it does not actually matter all that much with regards to the severity of your injury, we can deal with both minor and severe ones here. What matters is that you have been injured and that you are able to provide us with evidence of these injuries in the form of a medical report.
- For the most part, you will only be able to make a claim for compensation within three years of the date of the injury. There are a couple of exceptions to this rule, but in almost all cases, the sooner you make the claim, the easier things are going to be for you.
- Finally, you must also be able to prove that it was the negligence of another person which led to your injuries occurring.
