Any reputable solicitor will take the time to answer any questions you may have about making a personal injury compensation claim. It can be difficult finding a solicitor you can trust, but it can be made a lot easier by following Accident Advice Helpline’s tips.
We are a national team of solicitors that help victims of personal injury accidents from all over the UK. As a Derbyshire resident, you may have been searching for injury lawyers in High Peak, and have not realised you could have access to the experience and specialist knowledge provided by Accident Advice Helpline.
Why use Accident Advice Helpline rather than injury lawyers in High Peak?
Our solicitors are able to process personal injury claims over the phone which means you can begin your claim from the comfort of your own home, or even from the hospital if you are staying there due to the nature of your injuries. We also work on a no win no fee basis, which some injury lawyers in High Peak may not do.
Questions to ask a solicitor before pursuing a claim
- Can I submit a claim using no win, no fee?
Not all legal teams work on a no win, no fee basis. Accident Advice Helpline do, which means that if your claim is submitted but not successful, you will not pay solicitors’ fees.
- Why should I make a claim?
You may be hesitant to pursue a claim, but our friendly legal advisers will put you at ease and explain the entire process to you. There a several benefits to making a compensation claim as the money you receive can help to cover certain costs, such as:
- Prescription medication costs
- Private medical fees, if you choose to use a private service to speed up your recovery
- Transport costs to and from hospital appointments
- Loss of current and future earnings
- Adaptation of your vehicle or home, due to any disability caused by the accident
- You could also be awarded damages for stress and emotional strain, if this is appropriate to your case.
- How much compensation will I receive?
Any potential solicitor should be honest about how much compensation you may be awarded. The most accurate way they can do this is by relating your case to similar past successes. They should not, however, give you false expectations. Accident Advice Helpline has been representing personal injury victims for over 15 years and is therefore able to give you a realistic estimate of the compensation you can expect to receive.
- Will I be expected to attend court?
Many people are concerned about attending court and this may deter them from making a claim. Due to our high level of expertise in the specialised area of personal injury law, we are able, in most cases, to reach a settlement before the matter is brought to court.
