Whenever you use a professional in an area in which you know little about, you tend to feel as if you’re taking something of a risk. You’re relying on the fact that the person you work with knows what they are doing. For example if you employ a plumber who isn’t up to the job you’ll pretty soon be knee deep in water. So, if you live in Redditch compensation claims need someone reliable to take on your case.
Help with Redditch compensation
Many lawyers like it when their clients know nothing – it makes it easier for them. Every personal injury lawyer has many clients on their desk and the quicker they can move them on and through, the easier it is for them. Therefore they are likely to simply take the case as far as being offered a settlement by the other side and will then hope the client takes it. It’s a quick, lazy way of working and as often as not they get away with it because people don’t do the research.
The importance of knowledge cannot be over stressed. For example, if the other side comes back with a settlement it’s probable that their first offer will be far below the amount you should, by rights, expect. If you have a law firm which is truly working in your interests they should not recommend that you accept unless the offer is realistic.
At Accident Advice Helpline we offer a service which allows people to look ahead. We call it the 30-second test and it can be found in a very prominent position on our website. As the name suggests this compensation calculator allows you to answer a few questions about your situation before giving you a quote about your likely compensation fee.
There are flaws in this. Given the limited amount of information you can provide it is only a rough guide and we may give you a more up to date one when you tell us a little more about yourself. But it does help you set realistic expectations and goals before you start which can be useful when it comes to a settlement offer. If the other side have tried to take the proverbial then you’ll be in a position to reject the offer and push on to court. The chances are, though, that they will realise the game is up and come back with an improved proposition.
