The fear of the unknown can be a crippling thing which is why we’ve put together this guide to show you what to expect when you start out looking for South Lakeland personal injury claims.
Making stress free claims in South Lakeland
People often fall at the first hurdle because they do not stop to ask what making a claim might involve. It is indeed a complicated issue and will require an expert to tell you for sure. Most firms offer consultation before making a claim where they will tell you whether or not you have a good case to make, but this is often little more than a sales pitch as they try to persuade you to use their services in making claims.
Some of the smaller law firms out there have been struggling in recent years so you can understand why they might be willing to take on some cases even if there is only a small chance of winning the case. They will be hoping to get a win, but if they don’t then they may content themselves with the legal fees instead.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we offer a free no obligation consultation over the phone. We’ll tell you what our opinion is about your claim and we won’t suggest launching a case unless we genuinely think you have a good chance of winning.
You will have to provide proof
If your case goes to court, you will be in the position of the claimant which means you will have to provide proof that the accident was not your fault and that the defendant was to blame. This means having plenty of evidence and being very certain of your case.
Most cases don’t go to court
However, the chances are a claim won’t get that far. The other side will be assessing their chances every bit as much as we will. If they think they are going to lose they may decide to settle out of court rather than go through the expense of a long legal case. If so, they will make a settlement offer to try and end the process.
This initial offer may well be way below the amount you could receive if you do press on with your case so it may be a good idea to reject in – they may come back with something else at a later date.
