What Is A Personal Injury Solicitor And How Can They Help Me?
What makes personal injury lawyers different from other lawyers, is that they concentrate solely on accident and injury claims. A general solicitor might work on property conveyancing one day, a criminal case the next, and the reading of a will the day after.
However, a legal firm that only deals with getting people the compensation they are eligible for, has a lot more experience in this aspect of the law. Their entire service is designed to enable victims to gain the legal representation they need, to have their claim processed in an effective manner.
Legal Expert is a specialist team of injury and accident lawyers. We can help with your compensation claim. To find out how, please give us a call on the number at the end of this guide.

My Rights To Make A Claim
In order for Sutton personal injury solicitors to be able to help you, you need to be eligible to make a claim. Generally speaking, whenever you have come to harm due to the actions of a third party, a reason to claim will exist. This is also true if you were partially the cause. You will simply pursue any third parties involved at a reduced percentage of liability. The ways that you could be harmed, include:
- Severe psychiatric damage caused by the shock of a traumatic event.
- Illnesses or diseases that are the result of being exposed to a health hazard.
- Physical injuries that are the result of an accident.
- Loss or damage to your private property.
If a third party was partially or fully to blame for causing you any of the kinds of harm listed above, you should be able to make a claim. The third party you pursue for a compensation settlement can be any unique legal entity, such as:
- Your next door neighbour.
- A local supermarket.
- Your landlord.
- The company you work for.
- A company you previously worked for.
- Your GP.
- A member of your family.
As you should now gather, it is possible to pursue almost any private individual, organisation, institution or business for compensation. If you are unsure of who might be liable for compensation in your own case, call Legal Expert on the number at the bottom of this guide, and we will be able to tell you once we know a little more about your claim.
Five Things To Consider When Choosing Your Personal Injury Solicitor
Finding the right solicitor to handle your personal injury case can be tough, especially if you have no experience of dealing with a legal firm before. These five questions below will help you vet any solicitor you are considering using:
- Does the solicitor specialise in accident and injury claims?
- Has the solicitor been successful in a claim similar to your own in the last 12-months?
- Can the solicitor offer to process your claim for a fee that is conditional to success?
- Is it possible for the solicitor to arrange for you to receive a free local medical examination in Sutton?
- Can the solicitor give you advice on preparing the evidence you need for your claim?
Legal Expert can offer all of these benefits and more, as part of our national injury and accident claims service. Speak to one of our team on the number at the bottom of this guide to get your claim started today.
Read Reviews Of Different Solicitors Services
Even if you use the advice above to help you select a suitable solicitor, it will still take some effort to check each one in turn. A way to cut down on the effort involved is to search online for reviews on Sutton personal injury solicitors. You can use the information in these reviews to create a shortlist of solicitors to check out. When you are reading the reviews, take note of key facts such as:
- Is the review positive?
- Is the review still relevant or is it too old?
- Does the review cover a claim similar to your own?
- Did the solicitor offer a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)?
- How much as a percentage of the compensation received, did the solicitor take as their fee?
Comparing facts like this will enable you to sift out any unsuitable legal firms. It could still take some time to find the right firm though. Legal Expert can help with this. If you speak to one of our team on the number at the end of this page, they will go over your claim with you, inform you of your legal options, and recommend a way to have your claim actioned.
Location Does Not Matter
You may be under the impression that there is a legal reason why you must use personal injury law firms in London to handle your claim. This is simply not true. There is no requirement for you to use a local firm, you can select any solicitor you wish.
However, even though dealing with a local firm might be easy, as you can simply pop in and see them when you need to, they might not be the best option. In order to have the best chance of winning the maximum compensation possible, you need a specialist accident and injury lawyer working on your claim. The location should be a tertiary consideration at best.
Legal Expert offers our claims service all across the UK, and this includes Sutton. We specialise in helping claimants get the most compensation they can. We can also help you prepare for your claim, by arranging a free medical examination in Sutton, to prove how bad your injury or illness is.

Your Right To Make An Industrial Disease Claim
Every employer in the UK is required, by law, to provide a safe and healthy workplace for its staff at all times. If they do not, and you develop an illness or disease due to a health hazard at work, you would have a valid cause to make a claim. Some good personal injury claims advice is that due to the fact the three-limit time limit to make a claim runs from the date the condition was diagnosed, you can also claim against prior employers.
Legal Expert has helped many people claim for a work-related illness, and we can do the same for you. Call us on the number at the bottom of this page to proceed with a claim today.
Your Right To Make A Medical Negligence Claim
Even though the UK Government and the NHS work hard to cut down on the number of occurrences of clinical negligence, it does still happen fairly regularly. If you are injured by a medical professional, in a way that could have been avoided, then the medical professional will be deemed to have committed medical malpractice.
