    Solicitor in Kingskerswell


    If you’re looking for a solicitor in Kingskerswell there are all sorts of ways in which you could get things wrong. This article, therefore, will look at some of the common mistakes people make when making a claim.

    Waiting more than three years

    It might come as a surprise but quite a few people fall foul of this problem. In the wake of the injury they spend their time focusing on the practical considerations of making a claim – so much so that when they finally get around to making a claim too much time has gone past.

    You may not know whether you’re entitled to make a claim but it’s a good idea to find out and it’s one of the first things you should do. Getting an idea of any compensation you could be due is important in helping you to plan ahead for the future.

    Getting the wrong lawyer

    Don’t just go searching for any old solicitor in Kingskerswell. You need someone who is a trained professional in your type of personal injury law. The majority of solicitors will have a specialist focus on one type of accident, or maybe two. You need to match up your solicitor’s experience with your own specific needs.

    Paying too much

    This is related to your choice of lawyer. Many people think that they have to pay their legal fees no matter what. That’s not actually the case – although there is no legal aid for personal injury claims you can choose an option called no win no fee.

    This means that if you do not win your case you do not have to pay – which sounds good, but you should always do a bit of due diligence to find out what the firm means by ‘no win, no fee’.

    There are plenty of ways in which you can maintain the appearance of no win, no fee’ while not fully offering it in real life. Hidden fees are common so make sure you read the small print and understand what you’ll be paying to whom and at what time.
