Are you thinking about making a personal injury claim? If so it’s important to understand what kind of people will be coming your way and what they can and can’t offer you. Making a mistake here might lead to you missing out on compensation to which you should have been entitled. This article is intended to help you avoid that and to show you why, if you live in South Norfolk ‘no win, no fee*’ personal injury lawyers are the best way forward.
South Norfolk ‘no win, no fee*’ claims
If you’ve been injured in an accident you can be forgiven for feeling a little disorientated. That’s because not only are you struggling to come to terms with an injury but you may also find yourself facing issues and challenges you’re not fully prepared to face. This can leave you vulnerable to people who may not have your best interests at heart.
The most dangerous of these are the so called ambulance chasers and claims management firms. They will contact you and attempt to persuade you to use them to make a claim. Their appeal is that everything can run as easily as possible, but they aren’t the ones who will be making a claim. Instead, they will pass your details on to another law firm and you may not have much control over who they are and what level of service you can get.
Even reputable insurance firms are at this game. They may suggest that they can help you make a claim and recommend a law firm for you to use. Again, this sounds like a good option, but they will be paid a commission. So rather than having your best interests at heart they are simply sending you to a firm which is paying them for the priviledge.
People dread going to court so when they hear that this is unlikely to happen their first reaction is understandably relief. Most of the cases we deal with are settled out of court. The other side will probably be doing their own calculations and if they think that they can secure a better deal by settling early they will do so. However, in the early stages they will try to minimise the amount they offer as much as possible. So you will need good advice to know whether or not you should accept.

If you live in South Norfolk, ‘no win, no fee*’ claims are by far the most common, but this can hide the amount you will actually end up paying. Make sure you always check with your law firm and find out how much they intend to charge you and at what point.
