If you are looking to make a claim for compensation there are number of factors which might affect your chance of winning as well as your prospects of receiving the right amount of compensation for your claim. This article will look at some of the things you should think about when making a no win no fee compensation claim in Tunbridge Wells.
Failing to choose a lawyer
One of the things which perpetually infuriates hardened personal injury law experts is that some people don’t even choose a lawyer to make a claim. This is much more than just professional interest. Many people take an offer from an insurance firm which means they never even consult a legal expert. This means you probably won’t receive the full amount of compensation to which you should be entitled.
Insurance firms are paid by how much they can keep from you. It is in their interests to reduce the amount they pay so their offers may well be a long way below the amount you could claim if you talked to your own legal experts.
Choosing the wrong type of lawyer
There are all sorts of lawyers to choose from. To see the scope you can try typing the words ‘no win no fee compensation claim in Tunbridge Wells’ into a search engine and seeing what comes up. However, not all these law firms will be the best for your particular case. The requirements of claiming compensation after a road traffic accident, for example, are considerably different than any other type of claim.
Law firms will general focus only on those types of claims where they have the expertise within the firm. This should be stated clearly on any marketing literature. To be safe, though, it’s a good idea to ask what type of cases they work on. Having an expert on your side increases the overall chance of success and increases the amount you can claim.
Getting medical advice
When we work with people we often suggest another medical assessment over and above any treatment they have already received. This is because a major problem is people not accounting for every single one of their injuries when the time comes. Because compensation is worked out on the basis of how badly you have been hurt it doesn’t take a genius to work out that missing out parts of your injuries can reduce the amount you can claim.
Paying for your claim
If you live in Tunbridge Wells, ‘no win, no fee’ claims are important because they reduce the risk you take when launching a claim. It means that the only time you will ever have to pay will be if you win.
