    Local Versus National When Choosing An Injury Solicitor in Craven

    When you are looking at getting an injury solicitor in Craven then you will be faced with a barrage of options about who they are and which one is best for you. There are specialist versus non-specialist firms, how you are connected to them, types of rates, and of course whether you go for the good old trusted firm down the road, or the big national firm that you have seen on the TV. And we are here to answer that last question for you, so it is just a matter explaining why as well.

    The local solicitor in Craven

    If you know an injury solicitor in Craven, or at least you know a lawyer that could represent you in this type of case, then you probably feel that they are the one for you. Perhaps you know them personally, or maybe through a friend of a friend, or family. This type of relationship is very important for human beings, as we are social creatures and we do relate to groups and those we recognize as being in our group. Though this is great, and it has been a great advantage to our kind, at the same time when we think in this primitive fashion we have a tendency to not think logically. This does not diminish the value of the guy you know, but maybe you may not be looking clearly? What are their fees? Do you pay upfront? What is their track record? These are all cards that need to be looked at!

    The big national firm

    The big national firm is different though. Of course they are successful because they provide a hands on service, this much you will assume – but it can’t replace the community feel. However, we are not looking for a lawyer to be touchy freely, are we? And when you look at the big top national law firms like Accident Advice Helpline, you will see the advantages of having them: to intimidate the enemy and a strong track record. This is what you want when you go forward with a claim – someone they know on your side.

    Then there are the fees? Are the local guys going to represent you off the back end only if you win? Or are you paying top dollar upfront? How long will this claim take and can you afford the stress and cost with this route? These are much more important questions for you to be asking!

    What is best for you

    When you want to get an injury solicitor in Craven then you really want to get a big national firm that will represent you there. It is great that you have close at hand legal advice from someone you know (or know of), but at the same time you want to get in there with a big firm and make a strong power play. And you want to do it knowing that you are only going to have to pay if you actually win!
