If you’re looking to find a solicitor in Nelson Dock your success or otherwise will depend to a large extent on how you go about it. With that in mind we’ve put together a few simple dos and don’ts which you should bear in mind when you start your search.
Do: your research
It’s always useful to know a little about what you’re talking about even if it is highly unlikely that you’ll be able to swiftly become an expert in any case. That’s why we have created a huge amount of content on our website which you can use to find out all the key information you need about your case. Spend time looking through this before you start and pay particular attention to any specific information relating to the type of accident you’ve suffered.
One of the common mistakes people make is to waste time. The longer you go the more difficult it is to look back, access the memories of witnesses and to prove your case. It’s not unknown for people to wait longer than the three year maximum time limit on any claim at which point it will be far too late to make any sort of claim.
Do: check your options
Don’t search online for a solicitor in Nelson Dock and choose the first one that comes up. Think about various things including price, reputation, and background. You’ll also want a firm which has significant resources to fight a long case. While the majority are settled out of court within a few months some drag on for years and that takes significant sums of money.
Don’t: pay over the odds
Some firms offer no win no fee* to cushion the blow and we’re one of them at the Accident Advice Helpline, but it’s still a very good idea to make sure you know what you’re getting into. Check the small print as some firms tend to come up with many ingenious ways to sneak fees in under the radar.
Check also how much you’ll have to pay if you win. These costs vary and normally take the form of a slice of the compensation sum. Make sure you agree how much the firm is going to take at the end of it to avoid a nasty surprise further down the line.
