    Seven reasons to use a specialist solicitor


    In life people often have to make a choice between cost and quality. However it is worth working a bit harder to find the best quality. This is especially the case when it comes to legal representation and below are seven reasons to show why you should use a specialist solicitor.

    1.    Qualifications

    A specialist will have trained specifically for their particular field of law. This means they will have a greater depth of knowledge in that field. For example if you got injured due to a defective product it is worth finding a solicitor that specialises in product liability law. They would be able to more effectively demonstrate why a product is defective and why a company ought to give their client compensation.

    2.    Experience

    Ideally you also want a solicitor that has handled a number of cases. This means that they are aware of how to represent people. A lot of the time people want to settle before a case reaches court. An experienced representative will be able to get the most compensation before it has to go to court.

    3.    Resources

    A specialist solicitor is more likely to have access to resources that would not be available to other legal representatives. This also includes specialist witnesses that can be crucial when proving negligence and so forth.

    4.    Better representation

    If a solicitor specialises in a particular field then they will tend to be more confident in their representation as they can look in closer detail and give you a better chance of getting compensation.

    5.    Increased chance of success

    While no representative can guarantee a positive outcome using a specialist increases the chances of that positive outcome occurring. This is especially true if they have handled a lot of cases as they will be more aware of what to expect.

    6.    More information for you

    A specialist ought to be willing to discuss your claim with you and give you a more accurate idea of your chances of getting a positive verdict. They can also give you more of an idea of what you can do to improve the chances of getting compensation (for example taking pictures after an accident).

    7.    More devoted to your case

    Accident Advice Helpline has a large nationwide legal team. This means we can select representatives that are best suited to a case rather than having someone available as a nominal representative.
