Are you looking for North Tyneside accident claim experts? If so your chances of winning can vary considerably depending on the quality of the law firm you choose. In this article, we’ll look at some of the key questions you should ask before you make a decision about which solicitor will be best for your claim.
Choosing North Tyneside accident claim experts
The first question to ask might sound a little insulting, but it’s one to bear in mind. Always ask whether they are a law firm or not. There are plenty of organisations who will attempt to take a claim on who are not actually law firms themselves. Instead they will sell your contact details onto an actual law firm who will then take on the claim. They’re not worried about whether they can help you out or not, but just securing money for the data.
To make sure you avoid this trap check to see if they are officially registered with organisations.
Have you done this kind of thing before?
Most people think this is pretty basic stuff, but it’s important to check. Most law firms will only specialise on certain types of accidents. For example, you may find a firm which only specialises in medical claims. They will be great for those types of claims, but pretty rubbish for anything else.
Having a specialist insures that you have the best possible advice right the way through the process and the best chance of actually winning the case when the time comes.
How much can I claim?
Although it’s impossible to always second guess the court you can make an educated guess. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a 30 second test which is a type of compensation calculator. The purpose of this is to estimate roughly how much compensation we think you should be entitled to claim. It’s only a rough guess but it is useful to have something to bear in mind as you work forward with a claim.
How much will it cost?
Many people assume that they will never have to pay a single penny when they claim compensation. If they lose they benefit from a ‘no win, no fee*’ agreement, but if they win then their lawyer can collect success fees from the other side. However, that arrangement ended a couple of years ago which means you will have to pay if you win your case. Finding affordable North Tyneside accident claim experts, therefore, is important to make sure that a big chunk of your personal injury claim isn’t taken by your legal team.
