For those looking for injury solicitors in World’s End for the first time the world of personal injury law can be a confusing one. With that in mind, here’s our jargon busting guide which will give you everything you need to know about navigating this tricky environment.
What is blame?
We’ve all heard the notion that ‘when there’s blame there’s a claim’ but what is this in legal terms? Put simply it is what it sounds – if someone makes a mistake and that mistake leads to you getting injured then it stands to reason that you deserve to be compensated.
That blame can take the shape of positive action – such as careless driving which causes a crash – to inaction such as an employer failing to take certain steps that could have avoided an injury in the workplace.
Do all injuries count?
No they don’t. Compensation is there to help people who have suffered an injury which is having an ongoing effect on their lives. It could have forced them off work, for example, or it could have reduced their mobility.
Minor accidents tend not to qualify – to get an idea of whether or not your injury is bad enough think about whether or not it required medical attention.
Can I get legal aid?
No, this is not the type of litigation that qualifies for legal aid. This means you will have to pay for it at some point.
The cost can vary depending on the lawyer you choose. While some will demand quite a high price others will be relatively inexpensive. It all depends on what kind of a lawyer you want to find.
Some offer a deal which is known as no-win, no-fee. This is a promise that if you do not win your case then you will not have to pay any money. This is seen as an important tool in reducing the risk people face and therefore opening up the legal system to people who are on a limited budget. Check with your injury solicitors in World’s End whether this will apply to you.
When will I pay?
With no-win, no-fee you’ll still pay but this will come at the end and you’ll more than offset it by the compensation you’ve received. You might pay a referral fee or pay a portion of the compensation sum. For more information, speak to your injury solicitors in World’s End.
