As with many different services the quality of the firm helping you make a claim can vary. However, if you know your stuff then you’ll naturally be in a better position to make an informed decision and to get a solicitor in Hartshead Moor who is better able to help you make a claim. Here we’ll look at some of the key things you should know.
You need to prove your case
The onus is on you to prove that the defendant was at fault for the accident. So you’ll therefore have to ensure you build the best case possible. If the case goes to court then the courts will believe the party who has the most evidence backing them up.
So, if you’ve been hurt in a car accident, for example, get the details of anyone who saw it happen – find photos or video of the incident – if any exist. The more information you have which backs up your version of events the better things will go for you.
Not all lawyers are the same
You should also make sure that you don’t just select any old solicitor in Hartshead Moor that you come across. Different solicitors and law firms will have different areas of expertise. So, if you’ve been hurt while at work, someone who specialises in employment law will naturally provide a slightly better service that someone whose focus is on traffic law.
You can change your lawyer
If you’re not happy with your lawyer for any reason you have a right to change firms without any penalty. It’s important to remember that as the person bringing the case, you’re entitled to have the right representation and you should never feel locked into any agreement.
Not all cases go to court
The good news is that you may not even have to go to court. In the majority of instances the other side is happy to settle out of court. It ensures they don’t incur expenses from a long and drawn out legal battle.
Get the best deal
There is no legal aid for personal injury cases so you’ll need to pay at some point. However if you choose a firm who offers ‘no win, no fee’, you at least have the benefit of knowing that if you don’t win you don’t have to pay.
