Finding a personal injury lawyer is one of those things which can seem very easy at first, but the more you get into it the more difficult and challenging it becomes. That’s why at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve decided to give you a quick rundown of some of the most useful facts about personal injury law that you will need to know and to help you find a personal injury lawyer in Betws-Yn-Rhos.
Not all lawyers are the same
You can’t just go out and find the first personal injury lawyer in Betws-Yn-Rhos that you come across. There is significant variation in the type of advice you’ll receive from any one lawyer. Some will be able to give you dedicated advice about road traffic accidents, for example, but will not be suited to anything else.
Other larger firms will have teams of lawyers who cover the entire spectrum, so whatever the accident you’ve suffered they will be able to help you out. There may also be some who are better suited to serious and long-term injuries, and will have the financial resources to mount a prolonged campaign to win your compensation.
The question of which one is best for you will depend on your situation. Naturally, you will want to find someone whose own experience aligns as closely to your type of accident as possible.
Most claims do not go to court
Here’s some good news if you’re dreading the prospect of going to court: most claims don’t even get that far. Most insurance companies have their own legal teams, who will be giving them advice about whether or not they have a good chance of winning. They will be wary of wasting money on a court case which they will lose, so if that looks like happening they will decide to settle out of court rather than fork out the cost.
There is no onus on you to take that settlement, but you will have to decide whether you want to take that money or press your claim for a larger amount in a law court.

There is also one other thing that you should bear in mind — there is a cost associated with making a claim. There was a time when you could have received legal aid to help towards the claim, but that is no longer possible so there will be legal fees payable.
When you call, one of our advisers will discuss the nature of your accident and your injuries and explain how to make a personal injury claim. They will guide you through the initial assessment by telephone and be able to tell you if you have a claim to make.
If you do have a claim to make, and want us to act on your behalf, then our adviser will pass your details to our no-win, no-fee solicitors who are experienced in securing personal injury compensation for the victims of accidents. Give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
