Even though they do most of the leg work for you there are parts of the process you will need to assist them on.

    Evidence

    Providing evidence for your case is key to getting any case at all. Just claiming something happened cannot win you any compensation. With proof to back up your accident you stand a much better chance. The best form of evidence you can obtain if photographic evidence. Having this won’t allow the opposing party to counter your argument because it is there in print. This means that your opponent won’t have a leg to stand on. Any details of witnesses to your accident will also come in handy to help win your case. Even if you only obtain contact details your representative within the Oadby and Wigston law firm will contact them for you.

Though this is a very harrowing experience for anyone to go through it is imperative that anything you say is the truth and as you remember it. Any false information will lose the case. In a circumstance where you firm does not win the case for you there is a good chance they won’t charge you as many firms operate a no win no fee* procedure.
