What will happen when I first contact Wolferstans?
When you first contact us about your personal injury claim, we will take a few initial details, such as:
- The date and location of the accident;
- How the accident happened;
- Who else was involved;
- The injuries you suffered and how they have affected you;
- Whether there were any witnesses.
When we have this information, we will be able to consider whether we believe you have good prospects of winning your case. This advice will be part of your free initial consultation.
We will then help you to consider potential sources of funding, such as existing protection under your insurance, conditional fee agreements (that are sometimes known as “no win no fee” agreements), or even private funding if you would prefer.
