    Accident claims solicitors in Pontarddulais

    If you’ve been in an accident and want to claim personal injury compensation, there is always the question of whether to go local or to use a larger nationally based firm. Here we look at some of the things that can affect your decision and whether you should look for accident claims solicitors in Pontarddulais or whether you should cast your net a little wider. Both options have advantages and disadvantages.

    Going local

    We all like to support our local firms. For one thing it’s a lot more convenient to work with a firm which is based just around the corner. More than that, though, it is also nice to feel as though we will get a good personal service from any local firm that we use. That’s why, if you’ve been injured in and around Pontarddulais, you might look for a locally based lawyer to help with your case. However that is not always the best option.

    Local firms might not have the resources to fight long cases and they might also not have the right expertise for your claim. Times have also been tough for small local law firms which means they may be overloaded with too much work and too few lawyers to take it on. Your case might end up being buried beneath a pile of other cases which means you may not receive the fully personal attention you were hoping for.

    Going national

    The alternative is to go with a nationally recognised law firm and there are plenty of them about. The benefit is that these should have the resources to cope with long and drawn out claims. Going national also means you expand the pool of expertise from which you can draw to take on your case, which naturally increases your prospects of a successful end result.

    However, these firms may not be the best option. They may regard you as little more than a case number and a source of revenue, in which case they may not do everything in their power to ensure you get a good personal service.
