    Getting expert legal help in East Hertfordshire

    Every year there are thousands of people seeking out expert legal help in East Hertfordshire, and in recent years that figure has been climbing, but the truth is that could be higher still. We constantly see stories about people who, for one reason or another, do not claim the compensation to which they should be entitled, so this article will look at why this might be.

    Fear

    The first thing that stops people is fear. There is no legal aid available for people making personal injury claims so unless you have inexhaustible finances it can seem as if you’re pretty much starting out all on your own. What happens, you might wonder, if you make a claim and fail – will you be left with a bill you cannot pay?

    It’s a very reasonable concern because the one thing we’ve come to realise is that the vast majority of claims we take on – even those which look straightforward – have some complications, so it’s always important to make sure that you understand what you’re getting yourself into.

    Paying for expert legal help in East Hertfordshire

    There are various ways to offset this concern. The first is to work on the basis of no win no fee*. This provides a sense of reassurance that if you lose your case you will not have to pay. This became popular in 2000 after the removal of legal aid. The government allowed lawyers to up the amount they charged if they worked on the basis of no win no fee*.

    And therein lies the problem. People often look for firms who offer no win no fee* and stop looking any further when in truth they should be going really in depth. You need to understand how much you will be having to pay in the event that you do win your case. Only then will you be in a position to understand whether or not it’s financially viable.

    Ignorance

    However there is another reason which is equally pressing. Many people simply do not know that there is the possibility out there to claim compensation. It seems impossible given all the advertisements out there, but the truth is that all too often these fall on deaf ears. So, if you have been injured it’s always getting advice from a reputable source to find out what you’re entitled to.
