If you’re looking to find a solicitor in King’s Lynn, it’s important that you look beyond the simple idea of finding any old lawyer and take time to ensure that the person you find is made of the right stuff. Here are some of the things you should look for.
Are they legitimate?
When dealing with a legal firm, you want to know that they are reputable. You’ll want to see if they are regulated and accredited. That gives you some reassurance that they will reach at least a minimum level of quality that you’ll require for your case.
Are they good?
Again, even among legitimate firms there is variation in quality. If a firm has a good track record, the chances are that you’ll be able to find out about it if you search online. We’ve become very astute at using the internet for our own consumer-focused ends, so if we are disappointed in a service we tend to take revenge by outlining our dissatisfaction online.
What’s their background?
It is also a good idea to get a clear idea of their background. Not every personal injury case is the same. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, you’ll face a very different challenge in making a claim than if you’ve been hurt while at work or in the street. There are also more complex and specialist cases relating to things such as asbestos poisoning, brain injuries, long-term industrial ailments and claims against hospitals for negligence. All of these will require the services of a team of people who have a very specific set of skills.
How much do they cost?
You also want to make sure that you’re getting value for money. The cost of lawyers tends to vary considerably, as does the way in which you pay them. A traditional fee structure would see you having to pay legal fees for your solicitor whether you win or not. For many people that is not affordable, so we’ve seen the rise of no win no fee in the last few years.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’re one of the firms who offer no win no fee as standard. For us, it’s key to everything we do and is important in ensuring that everyone – no matter what their background – can find a solicitor in King’s Lynn who can help them to get the justice and the financial compensation that they deserve.
