    Early settlements with an injury solicitor in Clydach

    The best outcome for making a claim is that you get an early settlement. This is opposed to a long drawn out fight, of course. And it would be lovely if it was always this simple, you just call up, state your case, and they apologise and send you a cheque. However, if it was always this simple then you probably wouldn’t need legal representation at all.

    Though getting that settlement is ideal, you should not really go down this path unless you are committed to a fight no matter how long. You should after all be in this for justice rather than a quick buck, and though a settlement can give you this, it is not always that easy and sometimes something like justice is worth fighting for. That said, there are a few factors that can get you an early settlement that are worth knowing.

    A strong case

    When you are going to make a case with an injury solicitor in Clydach, the strength of your case goes a long way in determining whether or not you get an early settlement. Companies, as you are aware, are always about those business calculations. Here, their calculation is the chances of them losing, against the cost of the outcomes. The more likely they think that the case is stacked against them, the more that this calculation is changed, and hence the more likely they will be to strike a deal.

    This is something that your lawyer will go through with you when you first start talking with them. However, they cannot say that there will be an early settlement, as they are not psychic, but they can put things in terms of the strength of your case.

    Get a decent lawyer

    As said above, the calculation that the companies you are up against make are based around the likelihood that they will win. Though in a perfect world this would just be about the case, in reality who is representing you also plays a role. If you walk in with Bob from down the street, then they will no doubt look at this and think that maybe they can win in court with their superior legal knowledge, or perhaps they can just make it such a long fight that Bob wont have the stamina for it – or maybe you wont be able to pay his upfront fees.

    However, if you walk in with a large legal firm like Accident Advice Helpline, then they will look at this and not see as much chance for their victory, and they certainly wont think that a long drawn-out battle is in their favor, knowing that Accident Advice Helpline doesn’t back down and that you are probably on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, so money wont factor for you. This is something that will massively effect your chances of an early settlement when you are looking for an injury solicitor in Clydach. But remember, early settlement or not, it is the win that counts, and that should always be your focus.
