We’ve become accustomed over the past few years to using the internet for everything. However, finding someone to help you after an accident should be about much more than just typing negligence claim in Leicestershire into a search engine. Here are the things you should be looking for which denote a good and bad lawyer.
Making a negligence claim in Leicestershire
The first thing is the way in which they want you to pay. There is much talk about the concept of ‘no win, no fee*’. Some people believe that this removes too much of the risk involved with making a claim and that it encourages people to press for compensation even if they do not have a good chance of winning.
However, we see it as being a sign of confidence and responsibility. When we say we can help you find lawyers who offer Leicestershire ‘no win, no fee*’ compensation, we are saying that we are confident in our ability to help you win. We are also much more likely to be responsible in the type of claims we take on because if we do not win our case then we will not be paid a single penny. This heightens the pressure on us to be accurate about what we can and can’t do.
Are they any good?
There are many law firms out there and each of them offer a wide range of different services which means the chances are you’ll find someone who has all the skills and experience you need when making a personal injury claim. However, to make sure they are up to scratch try running an internet search for the law firm’s name. If people have used them before and not enjoyed the service they will take to the web to voice their displeasure. It’s a good way of making sure your complaint goes much further. Equally if they are happy with the way the claim has transpired they will also take to the web to say nice things.
Can they help with your type of claim?
The majority of firms out there will offer a pretty good service, but not all of them will be suitable for your type of claim. This is because most of them work on only certain types of cases. They should not take your case on unless they feel confident in their ability to help you out, but you never know – they may be willing to compromise if they need the business.
