People often feel a little daunted about making a claim when they first call us. For this reason, we’ve come up with a few pieces of information you might like to know that can help you to find solicitors in Tollerton who can help you make a claim.
You need not commit to anything
One thing that stops people from doing research early on is the concern that they might be committing to something earlier than they would like to. In other words, that by contacting a law firm for advice, they are somehow entering into a form of contract. That is not the case. Under law, you do not have to continue using a law firm once you’ve started. If for any reason you feel that this firm isn’t the right one for you, you’re entitled to leave and find another one who will offer what you feel is a more appropriate service.
Making your claim
The majority of personal injury cases take place in the small claims court. When you go here, the burden will be on you to prove that the defendant was at fault, and not the other way around. For this reason, it’s a good idea to have as much information supporting you about your case as you possibly can find; things such as witness statements and photographic evidence will be very important in helping you to backup your case.
Another concern is how much it will cost. We’re all on limited budgets these days, so it is perfectly understandable that people might not want to make too big a financial commitment knowing that there is no guarantee they will win their case in the end.
That’s why we, like some other law firms, offer something called no win no fee. That’s our way of providing people like you with a bit of reassurance, and of ensuring that everyone has access to the law courts no matter what their personal circumstances might be. Although some firms might play a little fast and loose with the idea of no win no fee, for us it’s something which sits right at the heart of what we do.
Finding solicitors in Tollerton
The other thing to remember is that not all lawyers are alike. Most will only specialise in one or two areas of personal injury law, so if you’ve been hurt at work it’s not the best idea to find someone who specialises in road traffic accidents. They might know the basics of personal injury law, but there is no guarantee that they will be able to truly give you the full benefit of their experience. That’s why we always find solicitors in Tollerton who have the right area of expertise who also offer no win no fee – it’s crucial in giving you the reassurance that you have someone who is fighting on your side.
So, to find out more about how we work and find solicitors in Tollerton, give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
