    Injury solicitor in Rotherwick


    Whether you’re looking for an injury solicitor in Rotherwick based or anywhere else in the country the basic rules apply. In this guide we look at a few basic principles you should follow to help you find the right person for your needs.

    When you can claim

    You can potentially make a claim for almost any accident. It could be an injury in the workplace, a road accident, a slip or fall in the street; or it could be something like food poisoning in a restaurant or an illness contracted in a hospital as a result of medical incompetence.

    What matters is less the injury itself and more the details. Under UK law it is only possible to make a claim for those accidents which happened within a three year period. If you were injured in an incident which took place longer ago than that, then regardless of how meritorious your case, you won’t stand a chance.

    The court will also take account of how badly you have been injured. If they decide to award you compensation they will decide how much you get based on the costs you’ve incurred, as well as the basic affect it has had on your lifestyle. This could be anything from serious physical impairment to losing the ability to do your job and get paid.

    Who is at fault?

    Most importantly, though, the court will try to make an assessment about whose fault it was. Let’s assume for the moment that you are not at fault and feel you can illustrate this fact to the satisfaction of the court. In that case then you might make a decision that you have a very good case and it’s worth pressing ahead.

    However, what if the other side decides to contest the issue. In this case the court will have to make a decision about whose version of events they believe.

    Finding an injury solicitor in Rotherwick

    In those circumstances when the question of blame is in doubt, you will want to be careful about how you proceed. If you start a claim without analysing whether you have a good chance of winning you could end up wasting time and money. In addition, you might want to think about the payment structure.

    When you look for an injury solicitor in Rotherwick you’ll have to decide whether or not you want to pay up front. Some lawyers will require you pay fees regardless of whether you win the case or not.

    Others will offer a no-win, no-fee service and Accident Advice Helpline is one of those. We offer lawyers based all around the country who can offer you a simple promise – if you don’t win, they don’t get paid.
