If you’re looking for a law firm in Caernarfon, you’ll find several listed in local directories and on the Internet; in fact you’ll be spoilt for choice. The only problem you’re likely to have is selecting the right company for whatever it is you have in mind. In this article were focusing on injury claim compensation, a field that is very competitive, so you’ll need to be aware of the benchmark, and you can use Accident Advice Helpline to help you with that benchmarking process.
Covering your costs
The first thing is to make sure any company you consider offers a ‘no win, no fee*’ scenario. It’s important because it means if your claim was to prove unsuccessful, you wouldn’t be expected to pay your solicitor’s fee. It’s a way of protecting your interests. If on the other hand your claim proves to be successful, your solicitor’s fees would ordinarily be paid by the opposition, so it’s a case of “heads” you win, and “tails” you win too!
Estimating your claim
Before you decide to set out on the trail of gaining compensation for an injury you suffered through no fault of your own, it’s best to establish how much compensation could be due. Like us here at Accident Advice Helpline, many good injury claim solicitors provide an interactive, online HOW MUCH calculator which you can use for free to value your claim. The calculator we have on our website for instance, only takes about 30 seconds to use, and is totally free.
Is the law firm in Caernarfon user-friendly?
The next thing you need to establish is the user friendliness of any law firm in Caernarfon that you’re vetting. You need to make sure the injury claim process that they use is simple, and that should you have any concerns or queries, that you have access to good customer support. But that’s not the only thing. The specialist injury claim solicitor you end up using should also provide you with a dedicated helpline, so that it doesn’t cost you any money to check out your concerns.
Last but by no means least, you also want to satisfy yourself as to the experience and professional competence of the solicitors you’re reviewing. For example, Accident Advice Helpline’s has a complete rundown of all the types of incidents and injuries that we cover, and you’ll also find plenty of glowing testimonials from satisfied clients too. Finding a solicitor with this sort of background can give you confidence in their ability.
