If you’re looking for a solicitor in Kingscote, the success and failure of the entire venture can rest on how you approach it. To give you some guidance here are a few dos and don’ts to bear in mind when planning your claim.
Do… some research
We can’t all expect to become instant experts but the more you know about personal injury law the better positioned you will be to make a claim. Remember – knowledge is power, so they say, so it’s a good idea if you know what you’re getting into before you decide whether or not this is the right option for you.
Don’t… make assumptions
The world is full of people who either made a claim which had no chance of success or who didn’t make a claim when they could have done. In both instances, they were guilty of making assumptions about what their claim entailed. If they stopped and thought about the issue for a little bit, they’d have been in a much better position to make a decision.
Do… get an expert
Before you start it’s always nice to find an expert who can help you out. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a team of people with a huge amount of experience and expertise who are happy to help you with your case. We will look at every important aspect of your case and tell you what in your opinion you should do next.
Don’t…. pick the wrong solicitor in Kingscote
It’s important not to pick the wrong lawyer. You should do a lot more than just look for someone who has good experience. What you’re looking for is someone who is an expert in your type of claim. You won’t go to the opticians if you’ve got toothache so don’t find a lawyer who specialises in employment claims if you’ve been in a road traffic accident.
Don’t…. pay over the odds
Different lawyers have different payment structures so it’s important to know which one is the best option for you. In an ideal world you’ll want to find someone who works on a ‘no win, no fee*’ basis. This means that whatever happens you money is not at risk. The only situation in which you pay is if you win.
Do…. read the small print
So you’re ready to find a solicitor in Kingscote, but while ‘no win, no fee*’ is an attractive idea, it is not the be all and end all. You should check to see what you will pay when the time comes and how much of the compensation the law firm is looking to take. Also, make sure you check for any exceptions. Some firms come up with little ways to avoid the trap of ‘no win, no fee*’.
So to find out how you can find a ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitor in Kingscote, give our team a call now on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone. We also have a website at www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
