Most of us don’t know much about personal injury law except what we may have heard in passing. As a result, there are many myths and misunderstandings about what it involves. This blog attempts to debunk these myths and shows you how to find an injury solicitor for Swaffham.
Myth: Getting a lawyer takes money
This is not necessarily true. While lawyers are highly trained, professional people and expect to be paid as such it does not have to follow that you need money before you can make a claim.
Some firms charge fees from the outset which can be somewhat alarming as it requires an investment from the outset. For most of us who are on a budget, that requires a certain risk which we may not feel entirely comfortable taking.
Another option exists in the form of ‘no win, no fee*’. This is a concept in which you do not pay anything unless you win your case.
Unsurprisingly, it is an attractive option and is one which we offer at Accident Advice Helpline. The benefits are that it removes the financial risk involved with making a claim and as such opens up the legal system to many more people. We think that’s important as nobody should be put off from making a claim because they do not think they can afford to take the chance.
Yes, and no. While most areas of the law are complex, it shouldn’t be difficult to access the legal system if you get the right help.
Accident Advice Helpline offers an end to end solution which makes everything as easy as possible. You can use our website for information and then speak to a member of our team for advice.
They can look at your case and provide good, no-nonsense advice about what you should do next. If we think you should avoid making a claim, for example, this is the time we’ll tell you. That’s important as it avoids the problem of making a claim without standing a good chance of winning your case. That would be a waste of time and money for all concerned.
All lawyers are the same
That’s not true. Some will charge different rates and most will specialise in various areas of personal injury law. For example, one lawyer may focus on accidents in the workplace. Therefore if you’ve been hurt at work, this person will offer a better service than someone who has limited experience of this area.
