1. Solicitors who are Honest and Transparent
When you are considering making a claim, you want to be fully briefed on the pros and cons of doing so. You want to know about the risks – not just how much you can claim. Solicitors who are honest and transparent will discuss the claims process with you and help you to ascertain whether or not making a claim is right under the circumstances. What you don’t want is a solicitor who keeps banging on about how easy the claims process is and how you much money you could get. You want sound advice, always.
2. Solicitors who have Empathy and Listen to you
In the aftermath of an accident, good solicitors understand that their clients may need someone to talk to, in order to come to terms with what has happened. A top solicitor will be that person, while remaining professional at all times
3. Solicitors who Work for a Larger Law Firm
Large law firms have a big reputation to uphold, and as a result, they only work with solicitors who are the best of the best.Claim solicitors at larger law firms are always very experienced and passionate about the law. You could go with a solicitor at a smaller firm, but they don’t have as much to lose. You can always expect a courteous, professional service fromclaim solicitors at large law firms, and you can be confident that your solicitor will bend over backwards to get you the justice that you deserve.
4. Solicitors who Specialise in your Kind of Accident
While most personal injury solicitors have worked on a wide range of cases from road traffic accidents to industrial diseases, many will specialise in one type of accident or injury. If you have been unfortunate enough to suffer spinal injuries, for example, a solicitor who has handled spinal injury claims before will be much better placed to process your claim than a solicitor who hasn’t. So when you contact a law firm, specifically request a solicitor who has a track record for processing your kind of accident or injury claim.
5. Solicitors with a High Success Rate
Success rates are important because they offer a tangible figure with regard to knowing how good a solicitor actually is at what they do. Most claims solicitors have a success rate of over 80 percent and this is a good rate to have. However, it’s important to remember that some solicitors may take on more risky or complex cases than others, so their lower success rate may not be an indication of their ability to do their job. A high success rate is still better than a low success rate, though, so ask about your solicitor’s success rate.
