There are various factors you need to consider when choosing a Personal Injury Solicitor to deal with your compensation claim and we have discussed these below.
The choice of which Persona Injury Solicitor to use will ultimately be a personal one based on your personal preferences, but here’s a checklist of the main points to think about:
- Is the Solicitor qualified to deal with my type of case?
- How experienced is the Solicitor in dealing with my type of case?
- Is the Solicitor a member of the Association of Personal Lawyers?
- What sort of funding arrangement does the Solicitor offer?
- Where is the Solicitor based?
- How will the Solicitor communicate with me and how often?
These points are discussed in more detail in the answers to other questions in this section so we would suggest browsing through the answers if you need more assistance.
However, the choice as to which Solicitor to choose to deal with your case may simply come down to this: do you think you will be able to deal with this Solicitor on a personal and professional level to the end of the case? The case may take some months to conclude, and in some cases it may take longer, and there will be many times during the life of the case that you will need to be in contact with the Solicitor, listen to the advice the Solicitor provides and come to an agreement with them as to how to proceed with the case.
Therefore, at the outset, it’s really a question of trust i.e. do you trust the Solicitor, from the information you can learn from the website and/or a conversation or a visit, to deal with your claim well?
This isn’t an easy choice to make and it is important to get it right because a good Personal Injury Solicitor can make the difference as to whether or not the claim is successful.
