If you live in South Lakeland ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers can be difficult to find, and although the vast majority of people you’ll find are highly professional and will work hard to do the best that they can there is never any guarantee that you’ll find the best people for your particular type of claim. That’s why it’s a good idea to know what you’re looking for in advance.
South Lakeland ‘no win, no fee*’ claims
If you’ve been in an accident there are plenty of people out there who will appear to offer a good chance of securing the compensation you’re looking for. However, they may not always be the best people for your case and some might not even be lawyers in the first place.
The biggest problem with claims management firms is that they may call you up on the off chance that you have suffered an accident recently and try to persuade you to use their service to help you make a claim. However it won’t be them who are running the show, but they will instead be passing on your details to a law firm who will take it on. You’ll end up paying more than you need to and you may not even know who is taking your case forward.
Checking their credentials
To make sure a law firm is qualified, narrow down your search to those that have official accreditations such as those from the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority. This gives you some level of reassurance that they are able to do what they say.
Next check that they have worked on the type of claim you are making. Most lawyers only specialise in certain types of personal injury claim. They should state what areas they can help you with clearly on their website, but it’s always worth checking with them to be certain.
Next you might want to look into their success rate. Try searching for their name on the internet. If people have worked with them in the past they may be willing to share their experiences – both the good and that bad. A few issues is nothing to worry too much about but if there are lots of negative reviews then this might be a warning sign.
