If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury, you may be able to make a claim for compensation to cover pain and suffering and financial losses, such as loss of income, travel expenses and medical costs. In more serious personal injury claims, such as brain injury, spinal injury or amputation, a claimant is more likely to need expensive professional care, including rehabilitation, medical aids and equipment, and home adaptations.
Choosing the right solicitor to represent you with your personal injury compensation claim may feel like a daunting task. Our best advice is not to be drawn in by daytime TV adverts, cold callers or text messages that promise a bumper pay day.
Speak with family and friends to see who they recommend or search online to identify a suitable firm before making an informed decision.
So, what should you be looking for to help you to choose which solicitor to trust with your case?
A complex personal injury claim requires strong technical competence and a skill set that can only be found in a specialist law firm, such as Alma Law.
We are dedicated to helping people who have suffered serious injuries to rebuild their lives. Our high quality and collaborative approach ensures that every client receives the best advice and support.
A specialist personal injury lawyer will have demonstrated that they have achieved the highest of standards and personal injury accreditation as a mark of quality that sets them apart from their peers.
The two accreditation schemes to look out for when choosing a personal injury lawyer are those run by the Law Society and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
If you don’t know someone who has already used the firm and can personally recommend them, then it’s worthwhile reviewing any testimonials that are up on the law firms website. You can also look at Google Reviews and Trustpilot. Also have a look at the firm’s social media accounts to see what people are saying about them.
Many firms include information about previous cases that they may have acted on, and this can give clients reassurance that their case is in safe hands.
If you’re unsure about whether to instruct a firm it’s always worthwhile picking up the phone and speaking to them so that they can answer any questions you may have about cost and relevant experience.
