    If you’re looking to claim compensation for an injury, the one thing which might be more concerning than most could prove to be your wallet. Court cases and lawyers tend to be expensive, which means you’ll want to know that you have the best value for money solicitors in Trondra available. To help you out, this article will tell you more about how much you can expect to pay and when.

    Your rights

    Under UK law, you’re entitled to claim for compensation if you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault. You will need to not only demonstrate where blame lies, but also show that the injury has had a negative effect on your life. If you successfully demonstrate this, then the court will decide on the amount of compensation you deserve by combining a couple of different figures.

    The first is a figure for the injury itself – this will look at how serious it is and how greatly it has affected your life. Naturally, they will tend to assign a higher level of compensation to those injuries which are more severe, than to others which are not quite so bad.

    They will also come up with another figure based purely on how much you’ve lost out on as a result of your injury. This will include an assessment of any medical expenses you might have laid out, as well as a look at any wages on which you might have missed out. They will then use all this information to reach a decision about how much they think you deserve to be paid.

    Paying for your case

    The amount of help and support you receive from the government to help with your case has declined significantly in recent years. There is no legal aid available, which means you’ll have to pay the costs of your claim yourself.

    Legal fees are normally paid by taking out a percentage of the compensation arrangement you’ve received. This figure varies considerably, but should be no more than 20 to 30% of your final figure. Any more than that and alarm bells should start ringing.

    Depending on how long your case goes on for, the fees can be considerable. However, don’t panic: at Accident Advice Helpline we work on the basis of no win no fee*, which means that if you do not win your case you will not have to pay a single penny.

    Other firms might come up with an insurance package for you which pays your fees in the event that you lose your case. This also has the effect of offsetting the risk of making a claim.

    Finding solicitors in Trondra

    Cost should not be the only consideration, though: it’s also worth paying attention to the experience of your solicitors in Trondra. You should look for someone who has specific experience in your type of claim; only then will you get someone who is really well suited to help you out.
