Why Having The Right Personal Injury Solicitor Is Important
You need to choose the best personal injury lawyer to process your claim to give yourself the greatest chance of a positive outcome. All solicitors are not equal; some offer specialised services focused on making injury claims, others are general legal practitioners.
Every solicitor in the UK must be registered with the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) and comply with all UK legislation related to practising law. Making sure any solicitor you choose is fully registered with the SRA as a starting point. That’s why our Bicester personal injury solicitors are ideal for you as they have full qualifications and extensive experience.
Reviews Of Bicester Personal Injury Solicitors
Finding the right legal firm to process your personal injury claim can be tough. Especially if you have never had dealings with a solicitor before, you simply have no prior experience to help you make an intelligent choice. Therefore, online tools such as community-managed review sites can be a good source of initial information.
When you are reading reviews posted by members of the public, there are several things you should check and compare. This includes:
- The age of the review – try to find the most recent reviews you can.
- Also, the claim the review is based on – you need to find reviews that pertain to a claim similar to your own.
- The content of the review – read the reviewer’s comments, and take note of the pros and cons they have listed for dealing with the legal firm they are reviewing.
- Note the fee structure – check to see how the solicitor operates their fee structure. Can the offer a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)? What percentage of the settlement will they take as their fee if they are successful in processing your claim?
Can I Use A Solicitor Outside Of Bicester?
You may believe that you are best off using local solicitors in Bicester to process your claim. You are free to use any solicitor you wish, no matter where they are located. Using a local firm might be easy, as they are close by.

Therefore, choose the best, not the closest. For example, the Legal Expert national claims service specialises in personal injury claims and can cover the entire UK, including Bicester.

The most common type of accidents in the UK, excluding road traffic accidents, that form the basis of a compensation claim are slips, trips and falls. These accidents can happen in a public place such as a supermarket, restaurant, or library. They can happen indoors or outdoors, for example, walking along the road and tripping over a damaged paving slab. Legal Expert can help you claim a slip, trip and fall, no matter where it occurred.

Bicester Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs
What personal injuries could a claim cater towards bringing in compensation for?
These include fractures, strains, sprains, muscle tears and potentially life-changing physical impacts.
Could I file a claim without using a personal injury solicitor?
It’s certainly doable, but it’s not advisable as it doesn’t help your chances of winning.
How long do I have to claim?
The maximum claim window is 3 years after the accident or after learning of your injuries from the accident.
Are there any exceptions?
Yes; any historical sexual abuse crime claims would alter the timeframe that you have.
Who is the best organisation to help process a claim of this nature?
That would be the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, or CICA for short.
How long could the claims process last?
Usually, the claims process tends to reach a resolution within 12, at most 18, months.
Will my case go to a trial in court?
It’s possible, but it’s also unlikely, as only around 5% of cases go before a judge.
And when will I receive my compensation settlement?
The defendant must pay the settlement no more than 28 days after the two sides reach an agreement.
