What to Look for When Appointing a Fatal Accident Claims Solicitor
If you have lost a loved one due to a fatal accident that wasn’t their fault, we know that the aftermath can be challenging for you due to several reasons. When you are ready to pursue a compensation claim, there are several factors to look out for to make sure you receive the best solicitor support and advice that you require.
Here are some of the things you should look out for when appointing a fatal accident claims solicitor…
First of all, most solicitors who have the best interests of their potential client in mind will look to consult with you on a free, no-obligation basis. Solicitors who wish to take money before they consider the facts should be avoided. At Fatal Accident Claims, we’re delighted to say that we will always offer free advice before formally working with you. We will listen to what you have to say and will explain the options available to you based on what you have described. We will be open to answering any questions you have or looking to address any concerns. Seeking a solicitor is the very first stage of the claims process and we know the pain and challenges you’ve faced from the death will likely still be very present. It’s a commitment of ours to be friendly and supportive while remaining professional in using our expertise to discuss the possibilities of your individual case.
Area of Speciality
You have a better chance of winning your claim when you appoint a solicitor who has experience and speciality in the area. Each case is different and it’s important that a specialist solicitor knows the ins and outs of the law. We are experienced in fatal accident claims, so much so that we have a whole website dedicated to it! Our experience in this sector of law has seen us help clients who’ve lost loved ones due to various circumstances of negligence and unlawful acts. We have a particular interest in the bereavement award and believe the current state of the law is inadequate for the purpose that it serves in awarding family members with suitable compensation. We are also happy to support you in attending an inquest hearing if needed.
Are They Regulated?
It’s important that you appoint a solicitor firm which is regulated. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is the regulatory body in England and Wales for solicitors. They are there to ensure that the public is protected by a series of enforced regulations. The regulations are in place to make sure that solicitors operate in a way that meets the standards required. The SRA image at the bottom of our website shows that we are properly regulated.
How You Will Be Charged
Before you formally agree to the services of a firm, you should be aware of how you will be charged and whether any of your compensation award will go to the solicitor firm. At Fatal Accident Claims, we are proud to operate on a no-win, no fee basis. You won’t have to pay our fees should you lose the compensation claim. We also won’t take any of the compensation off you. After all, it’s the compensation you deserve for the loss that you have suffered. You will keep 100% of the compensation.
