How To Choose A Personal Injury Solicitor
It can be a stressful time after an accident and most clients want to be able to concentrate on their recovery and take the stress out of claiming compensation.
The most important question is about their personal injury experience as this could mean the difference between winning or losing your case and also the level of damages you may receive.
It can be a stressful time after an accident and most clients want to be able to concentrate on their recovery and take the stress out of claiming compensation. Choosing the right firm of solicitors is crucial so that you have peace of mind that your claim is being dealt with as a priority by professional personal injury solicitors.
When considering which solicitor to choose, there are several key questions that you should ask, including:
- How much experience they have in personal injury? Are they specialist? How long has the firm been specialist in personal injury?
- Are they independent to ensure they only act in your best interests? Are they linked to a claims management company or an insurance firm?
- What accreditations or memberships do they have to show their expertise?
- Do they help with rehabilitation and additional support services?
- What does it cost? Do they offer a no obligation service?
- Do they have any testimonials from previous clients?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. The most important question is about their personal injury experience as this could mean the difference between winning or losing your case and also the level of damages you may receive.
Choosing a firm that specialises in personal injury and compensation claims will ensure that your claim is being dealt with by solicitors with in depth knowledge and experience in this area.
Another factor to consider is how they can help you recover from your injuries. Solicitors should have a tries and trusted network of medical experts and rehabilitation specialists. They should be able to advise clients on receiving the best medical care available, in order for them to recover as quickly as possible after their accident.
The final thing to consider is how much a claim may cost. Ensure you are dealing with a solicitor who offers a no win no fee agreement. This ensures there is no financial risk to you in making a claim and that there is nothing to pay if the claim is unsuccessful.
Finally a word of warning. Solicitors and claims companies are both regulated and therefore are not allowed to cold call you. If you are being bombarded by text messages or calls you should report them immediately to the Claims Regulator, The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and also the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). It is important to complain so that not only can they ensure you are no longer receiving nuisance calls or spam messages, but also so that they can take action against the companies involved.
