If you’re looking to make Knowsley ‘no win, no fee’ compensation there are many things that you can do which will improve your chances of a successful outcome. Equally though there are some things you can do which might ensure things don’t end up so well. This article, therefore, will list a few dos and don’ts when it comes to making personal injury claims.
Knowsley ‘no win, no fee’ compensation
Firstly, try to work on the basis of ‘no win, no fee’ if you can. There are several different ways of paying for a claim including an insurance policy which pays you in the event that you lose your case. However there will still be premiums to pay so this is not quite as worthwhile as ‘no win, no fee’.
There might be a perception that if a law firm is offering ‘no win, no fee’ they might be compensating for a lack of ability elsewhere, but most firms work on the basis of no win no fee which mean you don’t have to sacrifice quality for affordability.
Do – estimate a claim
When you log onto our site you may immediately see something called the 30 second test. This is a very simple compensation calculator which can tell you how much compensation you might be entitled to if your claim is successful. This is little more than a basic estimate, but it is something which can help you form realistic expectations which can in turn be very useful in all sorts of ways later on.
Don’t accept an offer too quickly
One reason knowing your likely compensation amount can be useful, is to set it against any offer you receive from the other side. They have a vested interest in deterring you from making a claim and will do everything in their power to stop this from happening. If someone does come back with an offer, take some time out to think about it a little before accepting. Try consulting a law firm to see what they say. The chances are if you hold out for longer you could be paid more.
Don’t underestimate your injuries
Many people forget to mention certain aspects of their injuries which can lead to their recovery time being under estimated. This is dangerous because this has a crucial say in how much compensation you are eventually paid out. If you under estimate your recovery you will not be paid as much as you could have been which could see you struggling later on.
