Our highly trained staff will usually be able to tell you right away if it’s legally possible for you to claim, and they may even be able to tell you roughly how much compensation you could get.

How to make the most of your solicitors in Woolacombe
If you’ve been badly hurt in your accident and you can’t get out and about, don’t worry — we will do our best to help you anyway. If you can, however, you can work with your solicitor to build up a more powerful case. One way to do this is to photograph the scene of your accident. If you tripped over or crashed into something, try to get pictures of it from several angles. It’s also useful if you can get pictures that show the extent of your injuries.
If there were witnesses to your accident, try to get their details as well. Your solicitor can then get statements from them to support your case. It can also be useful to find people who can bear witness to any hazard that was involved in your accident being around for some time without anything being done about it.
What winning compensation means
When you first start searching for solicitors in Woolacombe, the chances are that you’re thinking of compensation simply as a lump sum that could make you feel better. In fact, there are many aspects to it, and the amount you receive will be worked out according to the impact the accident has had on your life. It can include the following:
- Money to make up for financial losses you have suffered as a result of the accident, for instance because you had to take time off work;
- Money to cover reasonable expenses associated with the case, such as travel costs if you have to go to court;
- Money to provide you with special equipment if your accident has left you with lasting disabilities; and
- Money to cover reasonable medical expenses and care that you may need as a result of your accident.
