Instead of worrying about the cost of a solicitor in Oldham, you can always do your best to find out how you can go about making a successful claim for compensation whilst still avoiding going out of pocket.
It can be expensive trying to recover from serious injuries, especially if you want to get private medical treatment or help around the home, and so the last thing you want is to have to spend a lot of money on your compensation claim as well. Here are some of the best ways for you to save money.
Put your claim together yourself
The less time your solicitor has to work on your case, the less money they can charge you for the time spent. If you can get together as much evidence and detail about your case as possible and provide your lawyer with this, then they should be able to get right into the swing of things sooner rather than later.
Write everything down and keep it together as well, so that you have your own record if your solicitor needs to know more.
Don’t just go for the first solicitor you can find so that your claim can be started early, look on comparison websites and speak to friends and family so that you can find out who are the best solicitors in the area, who has the most experience in the field of personal injury compensation claims, and who is the best value for money.
Although this may feel like a lot of time wasted, it will actually help you to save money in the long run, and get your claim off to the best start.
Finding out the cost of a solicitor in Oldham
If you want a very clear idea of the cost of a solicitor in Oldham before you decide to move forward with a claim, you can always try calling Accident Advice Helpline for free on a landline, at 0800 689 0500, or on 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.

You will be teamed with a no win no fee lawyer, meaning that you won’t pay their legal fees until you have won your claim, and as a percentage of the compensation that is awarded. You can always ask for this information in writing as well so that you can check for any details that you might have missed, and have a much better idea of what you are paying for. Once you decide to go ahead with a claim, your lawyer will handle it on your behalf, and ensure that you are kept up to date with what is happening throughout.
