Whenever we’re in new or unfamiliar terrain the first step is normally the most difficult to take. That is one of the main barriers which stop people making a claim for an accident. However, if you take it one bit at a time it can be much easier to find a personal injury lawyer in Alnwick who will help you make a claim.
Finding your feet
Every year, hundreds and perhaps thousands of people who could make a claim miss out on the chance because they simply do not think they have an entitlement to make a claim. Sometimes it’s only when they see an advert or a friend mentions it to them that they stop to think whether or not there is a case to answer.
There are several key factors that you should bear in mind – did the accident happen within the last three years? Was it your fault and did you require medical attention?
Under UK law you must make a claim within three years of any accident happening; otherwise you’ll lose your entitlement. If you did not require medical attention then it’s also unlikely that we’ll be able to help you.
To really know where you stand, though, it is useful to get advice from an expert and it just so happens that we have lots of those on tap. Back when we started in 2000, we set up a free 24 hour helpline designed to give support and advice to anyone who needed it. This is a free service and comes with no obligation to continue using us should you decide to go ahead with a claim.
This is basically a chance for us to look into your case and make a decision about whether or not we think you have a realistic chance of winning. If we do then we can help you find a personal injury lawyer in Alnwick who we think will offer you the best chance of winning your case.
Finding the right personal injury lawyer in Alnwick
There are a number of factors we consider when we choose your lawyer. For starters we look at their background. Because there are different challenges in making claims for different types of accidents, we find someone whose experience matches your type of injury.
However, possibly the most important is the notion that you should always work on the basis of ‘no-win, no-fee’. This is a promise that if you do not win your case you will not have to pay a single penny. This reduces the risks of making a claim and ensures that you will not have to check your bank balance before deciding whether or not you want to go ahead with any claim.
