If you are injured in an accident which was not your fault there is a very good chance that you might be able to claim compensation. It sounds simple but while you may be looking for lawyers who can offer no-win, no-fee in Bassetlaw, you should also be thinking about some of the things you can do which might enhance your chances of a successful claim.
Finding no-win, no-fee in Bassetlaw
First of all let’s keep the costs down. No-win, no-fee should be seen as a kind of safety net. It ensures that the only time you will ever have to pay anything will be if you win. With the removal of legal aid many people found themselves in the difficult position of not knowing whether or not their situation would entitle them to make a claim. As such, no-win, no-fee provides a form of reassurance and guarantees that the legal system remains open and accessible to everyone regardless of their financial situation.
Making the most of a claim
While we have a great success rate we think it’s important not only to help people to win their cases but to give them the best chance of receiving the full amount of compensation to which they should be entitled. We do this by working closely with all our clients and providing a huge amount of support designed to give them everything they need.
As a part of this, we often schedule medical assessments to help people work out exactly what they should be claiming for. One of the major things that affects people’s chances of success is underestimating the severity of their injuries. They may miss things out which they don’t think are relevant and they may well underestimate the length of their recovery. This is a major problem because compensation is worked out in part by the length of time you will be injured for. If you get this wrong then you may not receive enough to help with your recovery.
Settling too early
Many people also settle for compensation too early. Insurance companies are very astute and they have a good idea when they are likely to win a case and when things may go against them. As such they will look at offering you a settlement which will be lower than the amount you would receive if you press ahead with a claim in the hope that you’ll accept it and cash out early. Remember – no matter what happens it’s always important to consult a lawyer to ensure your rights are always protected.
