If you have been injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault, then you may be eligible for compensation. Making a claim in itself is a relatively straightforward process, but it is absolutely vital that you choose the right personal injury lawyers for you, in order to get the best legal advice and the best legal representation.
Three things to consider when choosing the right personal injury lawyers for you
Not all lawyers are created equal; some are incredibly good at what they do, while others make their living by opting for the easiest cases. To help you choose the right personal injury lawyers for you, here are three things to consider early on in the claims process:
- Case experience
Case experience is an incredibly important thing to consider when choosing the right personal injury lawyers for you. A lawyer who has worked several cases that are similar to your own is going to be more qualified to process your claim than somebody who hasn’t.
In personal injury law, most lawyers specialise in one particular area. For example, a lawyer might specialise in whiplash claims or they might specialise in asbestos claims. Attempt to seek out a specialist lawyer to process your claim, to maximise the chances of claim success.
- The law firm they work for
All lawyers practice as part of a law firm but whether they are employed directly or indirectly by them does not matter; what matters is the reputation of said law firm, and the level of service that they provide in terms of legal representation and customer service.
We recommend you use a popular search engine such as Bing or Google to look into law firms properly. You can find a lot of information online including reviews on review websites like TrustPilot and discussions about them on forums. Search for “law firm + reviews” right now and see what comes up. If the reviews make you question the quality of the law firm, then it is probably a good idea to avoid any lawyer working for them.
- Approachability and customer service
Last but not least, we have approachability and customer service. While the claims process is designed to minimise your own involvement as much as possible, it is always nice to know that you can pick up the phone or send an email and get a friendly response.
Not all lawyers provide good customer service, so you should speak with any lawyer you are thinking about on the phone to judge their character. Our lawyers, for example, are all very friendly and professional and they will be happy to take your call.
