    Questions to Ask Your Injury Claim Lawyer in Gilsland

    An injury lawyer will gather together the evidence, complete paperwork and represent you in court. Before you hire an injury lawyer, you will want to do plenty of research to check that they are the right person for the job. This article lists some questions that you should ask any injury lawyer before you hire them, plus it also explains how to find a great injury lawyer that works in your area.

    What Qualifications Do You Hold?

    It is a requirement by law that lawyers undergo a lengthy training process in order to legally represent you in court. Make sure that the lawyer has all of the appropriate qualifications before agreeing to hire them.

    What Do You Specialise In?

    You will want to find a lawyer who specialises in injury law.

    Do You Operate on a No Win No Fee Basis?

    A no win no fee service means that you do not have to pay any fees if your case is unsuccessful. There are some not so good law firms out there that will take on any case, even if they think it will be unsuccessful, just so they can get the legal fees. It is always best to choose a law firm that works on no win no fee basis.

    How Much Compensation Can I Claim?

    This depends on your circumstances. The amount you are awarded will often depend on the seriousness of the injuries that you sustained. Compensation can be claimed for injuries, damage to your personal property, loss of earnings, medical bills, transportation costs and childcare costs.

    Accident Advice Helpline have a free compensation calculator on our website. This calculator lets you see if you have a valid claim or not, plus it will estimate just how much you may be able to claim should your case be successful, all in under 30 seconds.
