If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may now be looking for a lawyer in South Petherton to help you make a claim for the compensation you deserve. There are several important points to bear in mind when you’re choosing a lawyer to represent you if you choose to make a personal injury compensation claim.
It is important to weigh up the different options available before you make your choice. Local law firms aren’t the only choice — there are also national firms such as Accident Advice Helpline who can offer a simple and easy solution for anyone who wants to make a claim. When choosing your lawyer, you should consider the following questions.
What level of experience do they have?
Although many law firms will be able to practice personal injury compensation claims, a typical local lawyer in South Petherton will not specialise in any one area. The nature of their practice means that they have to deal with lots of different kinds of legal matters in order to keep the company running.
Accident Advice Helpline, on the other hand, have been focused solely on this kind of legal work for the past 15 years, so our level of experience can’t be matched.
How easy is it to communicate with them?
You may well find that your local lawyer in South Petherton has certain opening hours, and that it’s very difficult to get in touch with them outside of these times. Accident Advice Helpline have a dedicated freephone helpline that is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so you can get in touch with our team whenever you need to.
What kind of fees are involved?
Many small firms will charge upfront fees in order to make a compensation claim, but we operate on a no win no fee basis so you won’t be hit by any unexpected charges.
