If you’re unfortunate enough to be injured in an accident that was not your fault and take the decision to seek personal injury compensation with the help of specialist no win no fee* solicitors in North Ferriby, you’re going to need to be prepared. The insurer of the party you’re taking action against or the individual or organisation that was negligent will do everything they can not to pay out. Accident Advice Helpline can help and support you throughout your claim.
No win no fee* solicitors in North Ferriby
You can expect to have your case picked to pieces if you don’t have enough evidence to back up your claim or have in any way exaggerated or feigned any injuries. You probably wouldn’t expect anything less. As such, you and your personal injury lawyer will need to make sure that your case is as watertight as it possibly can be.
However, if you have a case that is almost beyond dispute, you’ll need to be prepared for the party you’re suing or its insurer taking steps to minimise its losses. As this will mean making sure you get as little compensation as possible, you’ll need to be on your guard.
Settlements and no win no fee* solicitors in North Ferriby
It will be extremely likely that you will be approached with an out of court settlement before your claim goes before a personal injury tribunal if your case is pretty much open and shut. The party you’re taking action against will probably make you an offer and go to great lengths to persuade you this will save you the time, worry and hassle of going to court. It will also probably attempt to claim that the amount on offer is what you could expect to end up with in court and the reason it’s offering to pay now is to save on its legal costs.
While a lump sum settlement without having to go to court might seem very appealing, you would be well advised to talk to top-class 100% no win no fee* solicitors in North Ferriby about the amount on offer before even discussing any settlement arrangement. It is by no means unheard of for negligent parties in personal injury cases or their insurers to go in with an offer that’s only a fraction of what a claimant might be able to win in court in the hope of pulling a fast one.
A couple of thousand may sound like a good deal when you get the offer but probably won’t sound quite so appealing if you’re told you might be able to win at least double that in court by no win no fee* solicitors in North Ferriby such as Accident Advice Helpline.
