Five Quick Reasons Why You Should Use A Solicitor To Make Your Claim
There are many reasons why it simply makes sense to use a personal injury solicitor to process your claim. In the UK you can do all of the work yourself, but it is not recommended. For these reasons:
- A solicitor will be able to help you prepare for your claim, and gather evidence.
- A solicitor will be more experienced at processing claims, meaning they have a higher chance of success.
- A solicitor will be skilled in negotiating a settlement, meaning they will likely get you more compensation.
- A solicitor understands the law, and how to represent you in court if an out of court settlement can’t be reached.
- A solicitor can offset their legal fees, and only charge you if they win your claim for you.
Legal Expert covers all of these issues above. We are a specialist injury and accident firm, and we can help you to get the compensation that is rightfully yours. Call us on the number at the end of the page to learn how.
Reading Reviews Of Solicitors Can Be Helpful
Finding the best personal injury lawyer to process your claim is something that is going to take a little work to achieve. You will first need to create a list of legal firms that might be suitable, and then check each one. A way to speed this process up, is to search for personal injury solicitor reviews. These can be used to create a list of potential legal firms to handle your claim. If you do check reviews, be sure to make a note of the key facts, such as:
- That the reviewer was claiming for.
- Whether the claim was successful.
- How old the review is.
- Whether the solicitor offered a Conditional Fee Agreement.
- How much the solicitor took as their fee.
- Whether the review had a positive experience and recommends the legal firm.
Facts like this are going to make choosing a legal firm easier. However, it will still take a while to compare all the reviews and choose a solicitor. Legal Expert can remove this time overhead, by helping you. Call us on the number at the bottom of the page and speak to one of our team. They will go over your claim with you, and make a recommendation on how best to proceed.
Where Does My Solicitor Have To Be Based?
To answer the question, should I use the solicitor near to me? The answer is no; you should use the right solicitor and in some cases the right solicitor could be a local solicitor or could be a solicitor 100 miles away, regardless of their location. You are under no legal obligation to use a local solicitor to process your claim.
Much more important than location, is how skilled and experience the solicitor is in handling claims similar to your own. A specialist team of accident and injury solicitor is going to be the best choice. So, unless your local solicitor is a specialist in processing such claims, you would probably better off searching further afield. For example, Legal Expert provides a specialised accident and injury claims service to all residents of the UK. We focus entirely on helping claimants get the maximum level of compensation they can for their injuries or illness.
