    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    How important is location when choosing an injury solicitor?


    When choosing an injury solicitor to handle a compensation claim, it is natural to consider their location. Most people will instinctively decide to hire a local solicitor to deal with their personal injury claims.

    We should bear in mind, however, that there are several types of accidents including slips, trips and falls, road traffic accidents and workplace accidents. These could result in all kinds of personal injuries and a local solicitor may not have the skills needed to handle the resultant case. In such instances, the services of a national law firm may come in handy.

    Should I choose a national law firm or a local solicitor to handle my case?

    Both local solicitors and national law firms have their strong points. The appeal of a local solicitor lies mainly in their convenience, accessibility and availability. This is important, especially for people who value meetings in person.

    On the other hand, national firms have the requisite skills and experience gleaned from handling numerous personal injury cases. They can also mobilise the necessary resources to handle all details of the compensation claim, making the entire process smooth, efficient and hassle free.
