There are few certainties in life – and none when it comes to personal injury law. For all the preparation you do and for all the merits of your case there is always a chance that the courts will find against you when the time comes. When that happens you want to know that wherever you live and wherever you come from you’re covered. That’s why Accident Advice Helpline ensures that if you live in Port Talbot compensation should not represent a major financial risk.
Port Talbot compensation
The majority of cases we deal with at Accident Advice Helpline are relatively straightforward and never even make it as far as the court. If the other side thinks it is not likely to win a case it will often decide to settle out of court and will send you a settlement offer. It will then be up to you to decide whether or not this is something that you want to accept.
However, on some occasions they may decide to fight which is when things become complicated. If both sides believe they have a strong case then this will go to court. For most personal injury claims this will be the small claims court and the onus will be on you as the claimant to provide proof of the defendant’s culpability.
This throws things into uncertainty and you’ll never know for sure if you’re going to win until the court delivers its verdict. And for many people that will leave them fretting over finances.
Personal injury cases can be expensive, especially if you don’t win your case. There is no legal aid available for any case which means some people may worry that the costs will be too much. What happens, for example, if the legal costs are so much they mount up to more than the entire costs of the compensation? It’s enough to give anyone a sleepless night and is one of the major reasons why many people refuse to make a claim.
What we do
There have been moves from the industry to combat this. One option is claims insurance which protects both you and your lawyer in the event that a case goes the wrong way.
You’ll still have to pay an insurance premium but it’s unlikely to leave you penniless.
The other option is called no win no fee and it means the law firm will waive their fee if they lose. That’s the way we choose to go at Accident Advice Helpline. We see it as not only protecting our clients and their interests but also showing a statement of confidence in the quality of our own service. If you live in Port Talbot compensation will not break the bank – and we’re confident of our ability to help you win.
