Unless you have a legal background, or have had the misfortune of having a previous accident, you are unlikely to know what to expect from making a claim and what the process involves. For many, it can be quite daunting and sound like it would involve a lot of effort. There are many questions and worries people have when making a claim and the purpose of this blog is to answer a few common questions you may have.
A question which is often asked by people making a claim is whether they will have to pay anything from their own pocket. The answer to that is no. Express Solicitors work on a ‘No win, No fee’ basis which means just that. If we do not win your case, you do not pay a fee. You will never be out of pocket or at a loss financially through instructing us to act on your behalf.
An issue which seems to make people reluctant to make a claim is a feeling of guilt towards the person they are claiming against. Many people worry that the person will have to pay the compensation out of their own pocket and it could have a serious impact on them. What many people are unaware of is the fact that the majority of businesses and people have insurance in place to protect themselves from a claim being made against them. This means that it would not be the business that would be paying out and dealing with the claim but their insurance company.
Many people lead a busy life and are worried about the added stress of making a claim. By instructing Express Solicitors, we will act on your behalf and make the process as stress-free as possible. The firm will carry out the investigations for you and do all of the work on your behalf so you don’t have to. We will research the defendant and initiate the claim, continuing to act for you throughout the process. At each stage we will take your instructions on what you wish for us to do.
It is hoped that this blog has eased at least some of the worries you may have had. Express Solicitors are always more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have so feel free to give us a call if there is anything you wish to ask on 0161 904 4660.
