If you’re looking to find a personal injury lawyer in Amesbury, here are some facts which could help you make a decision about who to go with.
When can you claim compensation?
We all more or less understand the concept of blame when it comes to personal injuries but what’s less understood are other things. First there’s the injury. In order to be eligible to claim you will need to have received an injury significant enough to impact on your life. In other words, you’ll need to have required medical treatment.
The other thing to consider is when the accident took place. Under UK law you have three years from the date on which the accident occurred to make your claim. If you’re suffering from an industrial disease then you have three years from the date of your diagnosis in which to make a claim.
How much does it cost?
Most law firms should provide free consultation and advice. It’s something we certainly do at Accident Advice Helpline through our free 24 hour helpline. This enables us to help accident victims to discuss their accident and decide whether or not they want to make a claim.
We also offer a no-win, no-fee legal service. This is a way of ensuring that we keep the risk of making a claim down to the minimum. If we’re unable to win you any compensation then we will not charge a legal fee. We won’t ask you to pay anything to start your claim either.
This is important as it provides reassurance to anyone who is not certain about whether or not they have the financial resources to make a claim.
Is bigger better?
You may want to support a local firm of solicitors. You may believe that because they are located close to you, there will be a better level of support and advice. In fact, a large national law firm can offer you so much more.
Some claims can be very complicated and require extensive resources. They can take a long time to settle. Your claim might be challenged and you may find yourself up against some pretty big corporations who have a lot of resources themselves to play with.
As one of the largest personal injury law firms in the country, we have the lawyers and experience to take on the big boys.
