Due diligence sounds like something the government undertakes when deciding who it intends to award contracts to, but it’s also something you should undertake to make sure you find a solicitor in Kilbarchan who is up to scratch. Here’s the things you should check:
There are sharks out there as in any type of business, so you should look at things which indicate that the firm or individual offers a reputable services. If you’re looking at an individual solicitor in Kilbarchan then find out about their training and see if they are accredited by an organisation such as the Association of Personal Injury lawyers.
An organisation should also come with some regulatory information. On our website you can find this at the bottom of the Contact us page. Here you’ll find that we are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and by the Financial Conduct authority.
A firm should offer much more than just sound regulatory credentials. You want to know if they are well thought of. A good place to start is their own case studies page. Of course a firm is likely to only put up those comments which show them in a favourable light on their own website, but this is reasonably telling all the same.
It shows you that there are people willing to provide a favourable reference and it also sheds a little more light on what it is like to actually work with that firm and that can be useful in itself.
Legal fees can sometimes be an opaque business and it is not always possible to be certain what you’ll get at what stage. That’s why it’s a very good idea to find this out before you decide to go with a certain lawyer.
In general the law firm will be paid through fees taken as a cut of the compensation fee.
This means you won’t get the entirety of your compensation but it does cushion the financial burden of making a claim and for the most part you should expect to get 70% of the compensation back at the very least.
