At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve had more experience than most in helping people to make no win no fee claims and find solicitors in Troon. We’re therefore in a position to warn you about some of the common mistakes people make when launching a claim.
Failing to do research
You’re unlikely to become an instant expert over night, but what you can do is find a way to improve the amount you know and understand. There is plenty of information available on the internet, but you might not find the right stuff. It could be about a different territory with its own set of laws, or it might be out of date. But, if you come to Accident Advice Helpline, you’ll find a huge amount of information which contains all the basics you need to launch your claim.
Not checking the cost
As with anything else, different lawyers tend to charge different amounts for their services, so it’s basic common sense to make sure that you understand how much you will be expected to pay and when, but it’s surprisingly easy to forget this.
Many people think that if they win their case the legal costs should be paid by the other side, but this is no longer the case. Others find that because their legal fees generally come out of the compensation settlement, it’s quite easy not to think too hard about how much it has in fact cost. However, this is definitely a mistake, because you could find yourself presented with a surprisingly large fee that for which you’re not prepared.
Some lawyers offer no win no fee, and Accident Advice Helpline is one of those law firms. However, there are some who’ll try to sneak in a few costs under the radar, so it’s a good idea to know exactly what you’re going to pay and when. With Accident Advice Helpline, you have the reassurance of knowing that no matter what happens, you will only have to pay if you win your case. For us, that’s a point of principle.
Finding solicitors in Troon
The next mistake is that people may find solicitors in Troon but not check whether the lawyer they find has all the skills and experience necessary to give them the best chance possible of winning. This would indeed be a major error, and is something you should avoid if you possibly can. By choosing someone with the right experience, you ensure that they will genuinely be able to help you get the best deal possible for your claim.
