When you are deciding to take action with an injury lawyer in Connah’s Quay, you should really think about how long the case could go on for. Though it is an oversimplification, we will call this a long-fight and a short-fight. The difference between these two could be the difference between a ten-year battle, or just a sternly worded letter.
The reasons why different people experience longer or shorter cases have a variety of different reasons.
The bigger the fight the longer it can last. When you are up against anyone, but especially large companies, money plays a big factor. If you are looking for a million pound pay-out, then this gives them a lot more reasons to fight. They use a simple equation that takes the chances of them winning and the cost of a legal battle, against the amount they have to pay-out, factored against the possibility of an early pay-out. But if they think they have a chance and the initial settlement is too high for their calculation, then this can end up in a legal battle.
This really comes down to you and your representation. If they think you cannot muster a long drawn out case, then this can factor into their strategy when dealing with your demands. For instance, you may have a small town lawyer who does not have lots of resources and your levels of confidence in the case could well be affected by this. Alternatively, if you are using a large law firm like Accident Advice Helpline, this could be less of a factor as companies will be aware that when they are committed they have both the time, resources and determination to see the case through.
The long fight with an injury lawyer in Connah’s Quay
It is never ideal to end up with a long fight. In a perfect world you would not need to and people would just take responsibility for their actions (or even better not have caused the accident in the first place). But this should not dissuade you – if you have a strong case and a good lawyer, then the only other factor is the money – and quite frankly I would commit for quite a while for a million pound pay-out.
The short fight with an injury lawyer in Connah’s Quay
When looking at a short-fight with an injury lawyer in Connah’s Quay, you are probably asking for a reasonable (but decent) settlement and you most likely have a strong case and a good lawyer. As said at the top of this article, this can even be so quick as to be a simple letter stating the case (and maybe a meeting or two thrown in).
Companies look at the case and make their calculation and with a strong case and a top lawyer they will often enter into negotiations straight away. The amount will of course be lower than the top end of a win at court, but it is quicker, easier and you get to deal without all that stress (and you get the money much faster).
