Questions to ask your personal injury solicitor
If you’re considering making a compensation claim, you may be researching the number of law firms available to help with your case.
Selecting the right personal injury law firm and solicitor to represent your interests is important, and at Accident Advice Helpline, you’ll find an experienced claims solicitor in High Peak. We’ve compiled a list of questions to ask your personal injury lawyer to ensure you get the best possible chances of a successful settlement.
Do you have experience in handling these sorts of claims?
It’s wise to work with a solicitor that has dealt with your specific type of claim before, whether it be an injury sustained at work, in a public place or on the road. Many solicitors will have experience in all three, but it’s a good idea to see exactly where their experience lies, e.g. dealing with claims for broken bones, head injuries and so forth.
Does your law firm focus solely on personal injury?
Many law firms will have one or two in-house lawyers working on personal injury cases, which can mean the resources to support them are few and far between. This can lead to your case being outsourced, or not giving the appropriate support to warrant a successful outcome. At Accident Advice Helpline, our law firm focuses specifically on personal injury, and have dealt with many High Peak claims in this sector over our fourteen years in business.
What is your success rate?
Of course, you want to work with a solicitor that has a proven track record of getting results and winning cases. It’s a good idea to enquire not only about the cases they have handled before, but also the results, so that you can get a sense of the likelihood of your claim having a successful outcome. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a high success rate that leads to over £30 million being awarded in compensation, with many claimants that have made High Peak claims receiving thousands of pounds in a payout.
What are your fees?
Affording a personal injury lawyer may seem expensive, but many undertake cases on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means that you can start your claim without having to put any money down, ideal for those victims that have been left to struggle financially after an accident.
How much will I receive from an experienced claims solicitor in H
Your personal injury solicitor will be able to accurately and honestly assess your case to see how much you are likely to be awarded. You can also get a quote from a High Peak claims adviser when you call our 24/7 helpline. There’s no commitment to move forward with any legal action, but seeing how much you may be missing out on could make the difference.
