If you have been injured in an accident, your first priority should be to recover as best as possible from your injuries. If you have been injured through no fault of your own, however, then you could be eligible for financial compensation.
In the United Kingdom, the law makes it very clear that if you have been injured as a result of somebody else’s actions or inactions, then you have the right to claim.
You are able to make a claim by yourself. However, the legal process is a testing one and unless you are a lawyer yourself, it isn’t recommended. Insurance companies are notorious for burying claims and taking their sweet time to review cases. So it, it’s worthwhile having solicitors for online compensation on your side through the claims process.
How to choose a good solicitor : First and foremost, you should look to larger law firms who have been operating for several years, because they invariably have access to the best personal injury lawyers.
A good solicitor has a high success rate (a success rate is a percentage of the number of cases a solicitor has won – anything above 80 per cent is excellent) and they should have a great deal of experiencing processing personal injury claims similar to your own.
The benefits of hiring a good solicitor : A good solicitor will always act in your best interests and provide legal advice, even if that advice does not offer a positive outcome. A good solicitor will also be prepared for any claim contestation, which can arise through liability or claim value. A good solicitor will also support you throughout the claims process – they can coordinate any medical care that you need, and they can refer you to people who can help you with your finances.
Are online solicitors a good choice? : One thing we are often asked is if a solicitor who you never meet in person is the right person to take your claim forward. The fact is this – meeting face-to-face with a solicitor is a good way to assess their character, but not much more. Solicitors, whether located online or at a local law firm, all provide the same service. In fact, some online solicitors provide a better level of communication and support than those at local law firms. Which is to say that a local lawyer is not always the best option; sometimes online solicitors are the best.
Before you choose a solicitor : You should always check their credentials against the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) Roll of Solicitors. All practicing solicitors in England and Wales must be on this Roll, in order to call themselves a solicitor and provide legal advice and representation.
