You might think you know everything there is to know about personal injury law. However, this is an area which is open to all sorts of misconceptions. This article has two aims – it will debunk some of the myths surrounding personal injury law and help you find the best expert injury solicitors in Swindon for your requirements.
The rules are the same across the spectrum?
This is not the case. Indeed the requirements of making a claim for a road accident will be significantly different from an accident in the workplace. For this reason many lawyers will specialise only in a few areas of the law.
So, if you’ve been hit by a car, you’re best off consulting a lawyer who specialises in traffic accident. They will give you better advice at every stage of the process and will be more likely to win the case.
Making a claim is complicated?
It is understandable why it seems intimidating or complicated – all things are if we don’t understand the process. It is true that finding the right lawyer can be difficult if you’re doing so on your own. There are different types of lawyers offering different pricing options so it’s not always easy to be sure you’ve got the best deal possible.
This is one of the reasons the Accident Advice Helpline was created – to make the entire process more straightforward for people, regardless of their situation. All you need to do is call us up and we can tell you if we think you have a good case, and if so how you should go about making a claim.
Making a claim is expensive
This is partly true, but it depends on what kind of lawyer you get. Personal injury law no longer qualifies for legal aid so that means you have to pay somewhere down the line. The important question to ask is when.
If you pay upfront then you need money to invest in the process. You also need to be able to afford to lose all that money as there is no guarantee that your claim will be successful.
Alternatively, a no win no fee lawyer means you pay no money upfront and even then you only need to pay if you win your case.
When that happens you could pay fees from the compensation awarded, so in effect you’ve not paid anything.
