What’s most important to you when claiming compensation in Mid Devon? Is it to find someone who is based locally or making sure that the firm you choose possesses the right level of skills and experience for the case? The good thing about Accident Advice Helpline is that you won’t necessarily have to choose.
The local option
We all like to support our local businesses these days – how else to you explain the growing craze for locally sourced produce?
It’s nice to know there is somebody nearby who can help us. It’s convenient for travel purposes and we may even know somebody who has worked with that law firm.
Going with a law firm also gives the impression that you will get a more personal service. With some law firms each solicitor can have ten or more cases on their desk at one time and it seems the only way to get your case to go forward at times is to pick up the phone and harness the great power of pester.
Nobody wants that to be an option. But to think that a local law firm will be any less inundated with options is something of a mistake. Indeed, a small firm may even be more over worked than others with a smaller number of solicitors having to handle the firm’s workload.
Local might also not be the best option if the law firm you choose is not up to the job. The length of time a case takes can often vary with some taking only a few months and others taking several years.
If a case goes to court then it will naturally be more expensive. The other side will probably have their case handled by their insurance firm who will have a whole team of well trained and highly paid lawyers to help them out. If your firm doesn’t have the resources to compete then you may find yourself outgunned. Indeed, that may even be their strategy; to try and string out the case and wait you out.
Claiming compensation in Mid Devon
Another option is to spread your net wider, but that often feels as if you’re going the big faceless corporate option. They will not be based locally and will have no connection to you or your case.
However, if you choose Accident Advice Helpline you can secure the best of both worlds, by making sure that you have a law firm who is committed to doing the best for you and making sure that no matter what happens you’ll have someone who is suitable for claiming compensation in Mid Devon not only from a local viewpoint but also in terms of the skills they bring to the job.
