No win no fee in Bexleyheath
Being injured in an accident that was not your fault is something most people would move mountains to avoid. Apart from the physical and psychological ramifications of being injured, you might have to take a considerable amount of time off from work too.
If you work on a freelance or casual basis, this could mean a considerable loss of income. Although it might be scant consolation, you might be able to get some or all of your lost income back by using the services of a good no win no fee Bexleyheath solicitor to sue for personal injury compensation.
The amount of damages that you end up winning will be very mush dependent on the severity of your injuries, but the expenses and losses components of any pay-out you were to be offered would be directly linked to how much money you lost through not being able to work and how much money you’ve had to shell out as a direct or indirect result of being injured.
Pay-out offers and no win no fee Bexleyheath solicitors
If you’re injured as result of the incompetence, negligence or irresponsibility of an individual or organisation that has liability insurance, it will be likely that their cover provider will contact you before you take action through a no win no fee Bexleyheath solicitor to offer you some sort of settlement. Why would they do this?
To save money. Insurers will try to reduce the amount they spend on going to court by offering claimants a settlement before things get that far. When offering a pay-out, an insurer may claim that the amount they are putting forward is what a claimant would recover in court, and the only reason an offer is being made is to avoid the associated costs.
If you’re made an offer such as this, always take any such assertion with a pinch of salt. You should always take the advice of a good 100% no win no fee Bexleyheath solicitor with the aim of finding out if going through the courts would actually net you a higher figure.
A lump sum may sound very nice when you receive the offer, but if it amounts to 75% or even 50% of what you might receive in court, you obviously won’t be doing yourself any favours by accepting it.
