An accident injury attorney is another name for a solicitor who will act on your behalf should you wish to pursue a compensation claim following a personal injury. Attorney is a term widely used in the States, but you may sometimes hear it in the UK, especially from US nationals who have relocated here.
If you have received a personal injury that wasn’t your fault, which occurred within the past three years and resulted in the need for medical attention, it is worth pursuing a claim for compensation. It is your right to be compensated for your injuries, including factors such as:
- The severity of your injury
- The site of your injury and the impact it has had (or will continue to have) on your life
- Any expenses you may have incurred as a result
How do I find a good accident injury attorney?
When looking for an accident injury attorney, you should be matching your specific circumstance to the knowledge and experience of your legal representation. For example, if you have been involved in a road traffic accident, you should try to find a lawyer who is an expert in this field. You can be even more specific than this too. If your car accident involved an uninsured driver, for example, it is to your benefit for your accident injury attorney to have experience in this area too.
This may seem like a daunting task, especially after you have been through a traumatic experience such as a car crash, accident at work or a slip, trip or fall. You may be perplexed as to how you should go about your research – perhaps opting to start local, or search the internet for reviews. In many cases, you will find it is difficult to extract the information you need. Most lawyers are able to handle any personal injury claim type, and will not necessarily publicise the injuries they have most experience in.
Instead, the most effective option is to use a law firm like Accident Advice Helpline. With over 16 years in dealing with personal injury cases, we have specially trained advisers who will match your claim to the legal representation it needs. With an extensive team of lawyers, we are always able to find the best legal expertise for your case, even if it is as niche as a helicopter accident, a train crash or an asbestos claim.
