What do injury lawyers in Birmingham do?




Injury lawyers in the Birmingham area handle a large range of work for people who have suffered a physical or psychological injury, disease or illness. Birmingham injury lawyers find that most such claims they deal with arise from workplace or road traffic accidents. However, injury lawyers in Birmingham also represent people in cases of slip and trip, faulty goods or services, medical negligence and crime.



Many injury lawyers in Birmingham will offer a free consultation so if you have been in such an accident it is worth getting in contact to see if you have a feasible claim. If your injury lawyer believes it is worth proceeding then they will most likely help negotiate a claim against either motor or employer liability insurance. It can take 2 or 3 years to settle a claim but the injury lawyer you choose to work with in Birmingham will hopefully be able to settle your claim out of court.



The compensation that your Birmingham injury lawyer helps secure comes in the form of special damages, which cover financial loss already caused by the accident, and general damages which cover pain, suffering and any future loss of earnings.



How can I pay for an injury lawyer in Birmingham




There is no denying that Birmingham injury lawyers are expensive but in itself this should not be a reason for failing to take action. There are plenty of options for covering the costs of using an injury lawyer in Birmingham which should be explained to you upon an initial consultation.



Most people do not fund claims themselves. People are often surprised to find that they already have legal expense insurance attached to a household or motor insurance policy which they can use to cover their Birmingham injury lawyer's fees. Failing this the injury lawyer you choose to work with in Birmingham will probably offer a 'no win, no fee' payment scheme that means you do not have to pay your injury lawyer should you lose, while if you win the other party will have to cover your expenses.
