    Solihull has a great reputation as being the centre of the British car industry, but its collapse – with people like Rover going to the wall – meant that jobs have become more difficult to come by. As a result, the implications of any accident can be more severe. This article will look at the specific compensation services our expert accident solicitor in Solihull offers at Accident Advice Helpline, as well as offering a way in which everyone can reduce the financial cost of making a claim.

    Paying for an expert accident solicitor in Solihull

    It’s a sad fact of life that with the arrival of tough economic times over the past six years there has also been less and less services on offer to help people out. For instance, a major problem has been the removal of legal aid from many areas of the legal system – something which had lawyers out on the streets earlier in the year.

    Of course, in personal injury law, the idea of legal aid is little more than a distant memory, which is why no win, no fee* has become such a popular way of working for everyone.

    The idea of no win, no fee* is very simple. If you do not win your case you will not have to pay a single penny. It’s a great way of ensuring that everyone can at least start a claim without worrying about the financial implications.

    About legal fees

    However, it would be a mistake if you jumped to the conclusion that just because legal aid was available then you didn’t need to think about money.

    As in any area of business, not all law firms are the same and they may have different ways of charging for cases.

    Some, for instance, require you to take out claims insurance as a way of protecting both you and them. This does offer some protection in the event that you do not win your case, but is not quite the real deal in terms of no win, no fee*.

    Others will charge varying levels of fees if they do win. In most cases this will be a percentage of your compensation fee which at least means legal fees won’t outstrip the amount you receive in compensation. However watch out for those firms which take a huge chunk. Anything more than 25% could be considered expensive so you may want to look around for other options if this happens.

    Getting the right lawyer

    However, the most important thing to remember when asking our expert accident solicitor in Solihull to start your compensation claim is to make sure the lawyer you choose is up to the job. You can ensure this by looking into his or her background and choosing a law firm which specialises in your type of accident.
