Assumption may be the route of many a misstep, but if you’ve come to this page we’re going to take a wild guess that you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer. If that’s the case then here are a few facts about making a claim which you might want to bear in mind.
1. Not all claims are the same
You shouldn’t make the error of assuming that a one size fits all approach works for personal injury law. While the basic principles of blame and injury apply there are many different challenges involved with making a claim.
While some cases tend to be fairly short lived, the more complex or keenly contested ones can drag on for months and they can cover topics which require a fair degree of expertise in order to understand just what is going on.
Equally, the type of injury can often govern how a claim is processed. There are slightly different requirements involved when you’re making a claim for a road traffic accident, for example, than if you’re just going for an injury in the workplace. Likewise, complex cases involving head injuries or medical malpractice can require support from lawyers with very particular expertise.
2. Paying for your case
The most important consideration though and one that often puts people off is the thought of actually stumping up the cash to make a claim and for many people this is so worrying that they don’t actually go ahead with the claim itself. That’s a real shame when that happens because they are missing out on an important source of support which could be crucial in helping them to make a good recovery from their accident.Open Claim Calculator
There is no legal aid for making a personal injury claim and these days lawyers cannot claim their fees from the other side which means that at some point in the process you’ll have to pay for your own claim. This is not exactly the ideal scenario for anyone but it is the one we’re often stuck with.
However, because we offer no win no fee as standard you will only have to pay for your claim if you’ve been successful in your case. In other words there is no risk involved in making a claim.
