If you’ve been injured in Peckham during the last three years and you want to claim for compensation, you will need a professional solicitor to help you with your case. But many people find it difficult to find such a solicitor and often give up because of that. The following four questions will help you identify a solicitor who is right for you. And remember – there is nothing wrong with asking. No matter how many questions you have, a good solicitor will always answer all of them professionally. This guide will help when you need solicitors in Peckham.
Do you offer a free consultation?
Not all solicitors are the same. Some might offer you free consultation and some might not. It is not right to pay just to get your questions answered and many people rightfully hang up the phone after they find out their question won’t easily be answered. A good solicitor will listen to each and every one of your questions and not charge you a penny for assessment and advice before your claim.
How much money is needed?
A good solicitor will operate on a no-win, no-fee basis, which guarantees you that there will be absolutely no fee for getting started with your claim.
What are the chances of receiving compensation?
This is one of the most important questions you can ask our solicitors. You need to know if you are even eligible to claim for compensation. In some cases, for example if the accident was caused by you, you don’t qualify to seek compensation.
A good solicitor will also assess your chances and give you an honest answer. After all, why waste your time and theirs in the process? Alternatively, you can use the famous 30-second test which can easily tell you if you qualify or not.
How much will be paid out?
This is another important question and here many factors play a role. Good solicitors will take into consideration everything including pain and distress, medical expenses, damaged equipment, loss of earnings, other expenses and much more to make sure they cover all angles.
Remember the 30-second test? It can also help you determine how much approximately you can expect to receive.
