Every week hundreds of people in the UK seek help from an injury solicitor. Thousands of accidents happen every week. The majority are 100% down to the person who has the accident.
However, in quite a few cases someone else has contributed to the accident. In some cases, they may be solely responsible for that accident and the injuries that occur as a result. Should you find yourself in the situation where you have had an accident and believe someone else caused it or contributed to your having the accident you should speak to an injury lawyer. However, you need to be careful and speak to the right kind if you want to get good advice.
Find an Experienced Injury Solicitor
In theory, any solicitor could represent you in a personal injury case. However, it makes sense to try to find one that has plenty of experience of dealing with such claims. They fully understand how to ensure that you win your case and get the right level of compensation.
Look for a solicitor who has been recognised by their peers and industry for their work. There are some excellent firms around who have won multiple awards. Ideally, this is the kind of firm you want working for you.
Finding the Best Injury Solicitor
A good injury solicitor will be prepared to speak to you initially about your claim without charging. They need quite a bit of information to accurately assess whether you have a valid claim or not. They will want to know what happened, where and when. In addition, they will want to know about your injuries i.e. what they are and what the prognosis is. The more information you take with you the easier it will be for the injury solicitor to assess your case. If you sit down with a solicitor who does not discuss your case in this way you should consider going elsewhere. An injury lawyer needs to be thorough and pay attention to detail to succeed and win cases. It is not a good sign when a solicitor does not pay attention to detail during their initial assessment of your case.
