It would be fair to suggest that the personal injury sector does not enjoy the best reputation. The old adage of the ambulance chaser is a well worn image in the national psyche, so when you’re looking for help with an injury claim in Fowey you could be forgiven for being a little careful.
However, the popular image is not entirely true and indeed this is one of the more specialised areas of the legal profession.
That said, there is – as in any profession – a significant variation in quality between different types of solicitors, which makes it highly important to make the right selection when looking for help with an injury claim in Fowey.
The question which this blog will seek to answer is: what features indicate a good high quality injury solicitor?
You should always look at a solicitor’s experience. Naturally you want someone who is fully qualified, but you should also look at what type of injury law he or she has worked on.
Most solicitors will focus on one or more areas of injury law and will state this clearly on any marketing documentation.
The reason for this is that different areas of personal injury law are treated slightly differently. This means that if you have been hit by a car, you naturally want to select a personal injury lawyer who has worked in that space before.
Look for things such as an accreditation from the Association of Personal Injury Solicitors.
This provides solid proof that the solicitor is at the very least trustworthy and meets a minimum quality threshold.
Money talks in every walk of life but particularly so when you’re looking for a personal injury solicitor. Put simply, you will be looking for someone who will not put your money at risk. Many solicitors will charge fees right from the outset and although there are still a good number who offer options such as no-win, no-fee* this is rarer than it once was.
Ideally you will want someone who will only charge you fees if you win the case.
As it happens, Accident Advice Helpline is a perfect destination for anyone who is looking for just this type of personal injury lawyer Fowey based.
We offer an excellent initial advice service at which we will assess the merits of your claim and furnish you with advice about how you should take it forward.
Best of all this is entirely free of charge and we place no obligation on you to use any service we provide.
