The Importance of a Personal Injury Lawyer

Whether you simply want to discuss a claim for personal injury compensation with a lawyer or get some ideas about how to conduct further action, you don’t want to hire just any personal injury lawyer.

You Want an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

Most people will usually take to the web, but we can recommend you use our lawyer directory to find a personal injury lawyer in your area and price range. Most services offered in the UK today by law firms in personal injury cases are conducted on a No Win No Fee basis which simplifies this task even more.

Personal Injury Lawyer - Legit Claims

The best way to proceed is to shop around and compare different options. Find the names of experienced solicitors in your area and aim to meet each of them to discuss your options before you even consider making a decision.

First Impressions Last

Upon meeting with your solicitor for the first time, give them a general idea what your claim is about. In most cases, personal injury lawyers do not ask a fee for the initial consultation to possibly represent you and your claim.

When you meet with the personal injury lawyer you can get a feel for their personality and decide if you are comfortable with them. Find out a little bit about their background and experience. If you’re interested in where he or she went to school you can ask that, although it isn’t as important as experience in the real world.

Examples of Further Questions to Ask:

  • Does the law firm specialize in your type of personal injury law? For example clinical negligence cases.
  • What percentage of their practice involves personal injury cases?
  • What is their success rate? Is there a solicitor in particular at that law firm which will benefit your case?
  • How long has the law firm been in practice? How long has that certain solicitor been practicing personal injury law?
  • Is the first consultation free? Can they assist with your claim on a No Win No Fee basis? Are there any additional costs?
