Compensation can be vital in helping you get what you deserve for your injuries. However, there are plenty of mistakes you can make along the way which could reduce the amount you receive or even lead to your claim being dismissed altogether. So, before you go looking for solicitors in Tredegar spend time to read about these common mistakes which can reduce your chances of success.
A lack of evidence
It is not just enough to be in the right, you need to be able to demonstrate that clearly and undeniably to the full satisfaction of the court. This means producing clear evidence which illustrates the merits of your case beyond any contest.
All too often, people make the mistake of not including nearly enough evidence in their claim and it hurts them severely later in the process. An example of this could be falling over a broken paving slab in the street. Because this has not been repaired promptly enough by the council you are entitled to claim compensation for the injury caused. But the chances are the broken slab will not stay that way forever, so it’s important to get a picture of the pavement when it was in that condition. You should take a picture which shows the damage and where it has occurred clearly. If not the damage will have been cleared away by the time the claim makes it to court in which case it will simply be a case of your word against theirs.
The wrong solicitors in Tredegar
You wouldn’t ask a vet to check you out would you, so why would you go to a lawyer who has the wrong type of experience. Yes they all went to law school and should know the basics, but that in itself will not be enough. There is a world of difference between making a claim for an injury in the workplace compared with claiming for a road traffic accident. The lesson there is to make sure you understand what lawyer can best help with your claim.
Not paying attention to costs
As with everything in life lawyers come in all shapes and sizes. Some are good, some are bad and many are just extremely expensive. Shopping around can help you reduce your bills, but to be really certain of getting the best deal, you should always make sure you understand the costs involved.
For example, you may want to find no win no fee* solicitors in Tredegar as this reduces the risk to your wallet of making a claim. That’s a perfectly valid ambition, but watch out if that’s your approach. Not all no win no fee* claims are the same and you could still find yourself paying out more than you expected.
