Finding the right solicitor in Newent can be quite a tough challenge, but this article should tell you some of the key pieces of information you’ll need to know in order to help you make a decision.
Assessing your rights
The law is very simple – it says that if you’ve been injured in an accident, you can make a claim if you have been hurt in the last three years and the accident was severe enough to require medical attention. Obviously, it must not have been your fault, and you should be able to demonstrate whose fault it was.
As the claimant in any case, the onus will be on you to prove your case rather than the other way around, so you will need to be sure of your territory.
Making a claim
There are plenty of law firms available who offer personal injury services, or you might be able to get advice from your insurance company or the Citizens Advice Bureau. The quickest and best way to do this, though, is to contact the team at Accident Advice Helpline. We can not only give you a quick answer to key questions such as whether you have a good chance of winning, but we can also help you to find a solicitor in Newent who will be appropriate to your case.
Not all lawyers are the same
It is a mistake to go looking for just any old solicitor in Newent. What you need to do is identify people who really do give you the best chance, and to do that you need someone whose experience is in the type of accident you’ve suffered. For example, many lawyers may specialise only in workplace accidents, in which case you’ll need one of those if you’ve been injured at work. Others focus on specialist or long-term cases.
In any event, having a specialist on your side will be useful, firstly because of the quality of advice they can give at an early stage, and also because they will do a better job of making an argument for compensation at the end of it all.
Paying for your claim
The question of money is an important one. If like most of us you work on a limited budget, you will naturally be wary of how much hiring legal help might cost. However, if you choose a solicitor in Newent who offers no win no fee*, you will offset all of that risk by ensuring that if you do not win your case you will not have to pay a single penny.
