    North Somerset Accident Claim Solicitors


    Claiming personal injury compensation can be a difficult business and many people lose out on compensation because they don’t get it right. To help you understand this process, therefore, we thought we’d put together this guide which will tell you everything you need to know about finding the right North Somerset accident claim solicitors to help you with your case.

    Finding the right North Somerset accident claim solicitors

    It can sometimes be a trial in itself finding the right people to make a claim. You’ll need to make assessments based on how badly you have been hurt and how much you have have lost. This includes money you have spent and also income which has been lost through your inability to work.

    When the court assess how much compensation they believe should be paid they will decide not only how income has been lost as a result of the claim but how much can be lost in the future. This is important to understand because you may find yourself making a claim before you have fully recovered from the accident. As such, you will be making claims based on estimated recovery times and that can lead to complications. For example, if you estimate a recovery time of six months and claim compensation then you may be exposed if it takes longer. If you don’t get back on your feet for eight months, for example, you could find yourself significantly under compensated. Where possible, it’s a good idea to wait until you have recovered until you make a claim.

    Checking their skills

    Most law firms will only focus on one or two different types of claims. In most cases they should not agree to take on a personal injury claim which does not fit in with their type of experience. However, some may be strapped for cash in which case they may decide to chance their arm. To protect you against this you should always ask this question: “have you done this type of thing before?”

    Accident Advice Helpline offers a degree of flexibility in our service that other similar firms can’t match. We have plenty of lawyers on our books which means the chances are we’ll be able to find someone with the skills and experience you need to make a claim for compensation.
