If you’ve been involved in an accident in Hambledon, then you might be tempted to search for a lawyer in your local area. However, as this article shows, that might not always be the best idea.
An accident in Hambleton
Hambleton is a lovely village with a proud history. Cricket enthusiasts remember it as the place which staged the first ever cricket match, and since then this has been part of what is a really tight knit community. With this in mind, if you are involved in an accident in Hambleton, you might want to use a local law firm to support you in your claim.
Advantages and disadvantages of going local
There are some clear advantages to going local with your claim. The first is that your lawyer will be based close to you, which has a natural advantage when it comes to consulting with them.
Other people in the village may also have worked with this law firm, and will be able to tell you what to expect. This naturally builds trust and helps you to feel that whatever else may happen, what you have here is someone who is very definitely on your side.
However, there are problems, most of which relate to the size of your law firm. Most will not be able to provide the best possible service for all types of personal injury claims. This is actually quite a complex sector, and some law firms can only cope with certain types of claims. The challenge of claiming compensation for a road traffic accident, for example, is significantly different than for an injury in the workplace, so it pays to have someone who has the right type of experience.
Furthermore, some cases can be complex and may last for several years. If this happens, you need a law firm on your side who have the experience and resources to cope with long-lasting claims. The other side may well have plenty of money to keep a team of lawyers going full tilt, so you’ll need a firm that can keep pace.
