    Expert solicitor in Hawkhurst


    If you’re looking for an expert solicitor in Hawkhurst it can be very helpful to employ someone who knows what they are doing. That’s because the decision you take in terms of who you get to pursue your claim for you could determine how successful your claim is.

    When you think you’re entitled to compensation, the first thing you might instinctively think to do is to contact a lawyer. But that can be easier said than done. Here are some of the things you should be looking at.

    Cost

    The price of lawyers vary, as it does in many other types of businesses, but what’s important to note here is that the way in which you pay can also have a bearing. Some firms offer no win no fee* which is an instantly attractive option.

    This means that if you don’t win your case you don’t pay a single penny. For those people feeling worried about what might happen if they are not successful in their claim,2 that is a huge weight off their minds.

    However this idea of no win no fee* does not always mean the deal is exactly the same. There are all sorts of variables to consider. First, the level of the fees if you do win might differ. Most law firms will offer the option of paying a percentage of your compensation claim. This level might vary from lawyer to lawyer, but in general you should receive at least 70% of your claim. However, there are firms out there who are more than happy to charge extortionate fees and will not be entirely forthcoming about what they are. You should therefore be clear in your mind about what you’re going to get with any lawyer you choose and when you pay.

    No win no fee* is not always what it seems either. There are plenty of hidden costs that can creep in under the radar such as the requirement to take out insurance in case you lose your case. This means there will be a payment and your law firm will be reimbursed if your case is not successful.

    Expertise

    You wouldn’t get a barber to fix your teeth would you – so in the same spirit you need to make certain that your lawyer knows his stuff. Having a specialist will improve the level of advice you’ll get throughout the entire process and increase your chance of winning.
