This is really a matter of personal choice.
A large firm may offer the reassurance of a team of lawyers, support staff and well-funded systems to deal with your claim efficiently and swiftly. However, using a large firm may be an impersonal experience where you are dealing with a range of people rather than one dedicated person dealing with your case. It may feel like you are part of a process rather than dealing with a Solicitor.
A small firm may offer a more personal experience where you will have access to one lawyer who is dealing with your case and who you can build a relationship with as the case progresses. The small firm of lawyers may also be able to respond quickly to developments with the case and progress your case as the case demands rather than as part of a process.
Both types of firms should employ lawyers who are experienced enough to deal with your claim and have a good track record of dealing with compensation claims. You can check this on the website or ask the Solicitor in a phone call.
All Solicitors must have insurance for dealing with your case and systems in place for complaints so you will be protected if things go wrong whether you instruct a large or a small firm.
