Questions to ask your lawyer about van accident compensation claims in Test Valley
If you are thinking about whether or not to make a compensation claim following a road traffic accident, you could have a number of questions about the process.
These are important to ask before committing to taking any legal action, and it is also important to ask your solicitor certain questions as well. Choosing someone to trust with your claim for compensation is incredibly important; not only do you want the best chances of a successful claim, but you also deserve to work with someone you can trust. So how do you know whom to pick?
If you are contemplating making van accident compensation claims in Test Valley, we recommend asking these questions before making a decision:
Have you worked on personal injury cases before?
Personal injury is a specific type of law, and yet many law firms will only have a small department dedicated to handling these kinds of cases. You should make sure that you are working with a solicitor that has dealt with accident claims before, and has done so successfully, so that you can place your claim in trusted hands.
Do I have to pay upfront?
Finances can be strained following an accident, and you may find that you are worried about the cost of affording legal help. The fact is, no lawyer should be asking you to pay anything initially to get started. The no win, no fee* conditional payment agreement is designed to prevent exactly that, and ensure all victims can access the care they need. At Accident Advice Helpline, we undertake 100% of cases using this method.
Can I avoid going to court?
Depending on the claim, it can sometimes be possible to settle over the phone. This means you are spared the pain and inconvenience of having to go to court, and yet are still able to recover the money you deserve in compensation.
Can I deal with you directly?
A trustworthy solicitor should always make himself or herself available to you. Why should you have to deal with a middleman, or schedule time waiting to speak to someone who is supposedly fighting in your corner? With Accident Advice Helpline, you can skip the middleman and contact your solicitor directly
