How do you select the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer?
In most cases a compensation claim can take months to agree a settlement and in cases of serious injury, claims may run for one or two years. The SRA are responsible for regulating the legal advice given by personal injury solicitors, however they are not responsible for many issues that matter to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your lawyer should be someone you are able to trust at every step of the process to provide compassionate practical guidance and specialist legal advice.
Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Get more information about how much you can claim.
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
