    Where do I start?

    Victims of personal injury through no fault of their own often don’t know how to embark on legal redress. In principle, everybody knows you have to find a solicitor and make a claim, but which solicitor, and where do you find one? These days it’s easier because the internet makes information about anything so much more accessible than previously. However, the downside can be too much information. With the explosion of online resources, we tend to suffer from information overload.  If I need to find the right compensation provider for me and I am spoilt for choice, how do I claim compensation?
