Expert help from Accident Advice Helpline
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our lawyers in Leek have already helped thousands of people claim compensation that they were entitled to, but how do they go about doing this?
And how much does it cost?
Cost – is a lawyer in Leek expensive?
Many people worry about the cost making a compensation claim, assuming that the expert services and representation of a lawyer in Leek will be expensive and ‘out of their league’.
However, the no win, no fee agreement has stopped this from happening. At one time, the financial risk and emphasis was on the victim, which understandably for many people was a risk too big to take.
And then, with legal aid withdrawn, the victim, although in personal injury law they may have had a bona fide claim for compensation as the injured party, was left truly ‘high and dry’ meaning that making a claim for compensation for most ‘ordinary’ citizens was out of their reach.
Recognising the unfairness of this, the conditional fee agreement was put in place which in everyday language, translates as no win, no fee. What this means in practice is that you do no need any money to start your claim with Accident Advice Helpline and our lawyer in Leek.
What about court?
Again, a common concern amongst people who are thinking of claiming compensation. The prospect of appearing in court is not a welcome one for most people and is too daunting to contemplate. For many people, the thought of having to attend court is too much and they prefer not to make a claim.
Our lawyer in Leek is experienced and they will tell you that the majority of cases do not end up in the court. The ‘other side’, once they know you intend on claiming compensation for an accident they caused, are usually ready to admit liability and pay compensation.
This way, they make an offer that although may be a huge amount to you will, in the longer term, cost them a lot less – and not just in monetary value! Their reputation is important to them.
What about medical assessments?
Again, your lawyer in Leek will tell you that the majority of cases do not end up being assessed by an independent medical professional, simply because of the detail added to your case.
However, there are some instances where clients do have medical assessments and this can be when the injuries are extensive with far-reaching consequences.
If you think you may have a claim for compensation, contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and see of our lawyer in Leek is the right legal professional for you and your case.
