When you start looking for solicitors in Trimingham you might feel a little vulnerable. That’s why this page will tell you what your rights are and some of the ways to make sure you get the best deal possible in your search for a lawyer.
You’re in control
When people first contact a lawyer they are somewhat wary of dealing with them even on a superficial basis. That is partly because of that old image of lawyers who start the clock ticking and demand pay for every minute of every consultation.
In general terms a lawyer will not do this. Most will be more than happy to offer free consultation through the hope that they can persuade you to come and use their law firm. That means you’ll have to be a little wary about the advice they give. There is an incentive to encourage you to make a claim even if they do not think your chances of success are that good. After all, what do they care if they get paid either way.
At Accident Advice Helpline we provide advice which is free of charge through our 24 hour helpline.
Another concern is that you’ll find yourself locked into using their firm if they decide to take on your case. This is not likely to happen as you’re entitled to change your lawyer at any stage. So if you start out with one firm handling your case and don’t like the way it’s going for any reason, you’re entitled to switch to another firm or walk away entirely at any stage.
You must prove your case
Because you’re making the claim the onus of proof is on you at all stages. This means you’ll have to demonstrate to the full satisfaction of the court that events occurred in the way you’ve described them. This means that not only will you have to show that you were not at fault, but you’ll also have to demonstrate that the other side was at fault. This in itself can be challenging and means you’ll have to have all the facts on your side backing up your case. If not they may find against you.
Finding solicitors in Trimingham
You are entitled to be fully in control of which solicitors in Trimingham handle your case. Often, when people work through a claims management firm they find that they’re not actually working with the law firm they thought they were. This can be disconcerting and it’s obviously something you want to avoid. Make sure you know who will be handling your case and how you will pay.
As an added reason to choose us we also offer the benefit of no win no fee. This means that no matter what happens, the only time you’ll have to pay will be if you win your case.
So, to find out more about finding solicitors in Trimingham, give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
