    Why choose the nationals when choosing an injury solicitor in Croydon

    When you are looking for an injury solicitor in Croydon, you should really be looking at the large national outfit, rather than a local firm. Sure, there is always the feeling of being connected to a local chap, he may even be a friend of a friend, or a cousin (though having said that, at the same time some of the large firms like AAH, Accident Advice Helpline, also do get excellent customer service ratings), but what you really should be doing is focusing on having as much skills, as many resources, and as bigger reputation as possible behind you. Feeling connected is all well and good, but it is much better to hear your opposition gulp! But then there are a load of reasons why you would go this way.

    The big brother effect

    If you go big when you get an injury solicitor in Croydon, then this can have an affect like that of your big brother turning up at the school gates – suddenly the bully doesn’t have all that much to say. These bullies are all well and good when they think they have you out numbered, but as soon as someone bigger rocks up, they suddenly back down. This is a similar effect to what you can get by using a large well known law firm, even these big corporations know that they are up for a proper fight. This can be something that can make a lot of people you are up against think twice before trying to fight, and could even get you the early settlement you want.

    The long commitment

    When you are using one of the bigger firms, ones with a big reputation and a lot of experience, you are also taking on a firm that should they accept your case, then they are committed. This level of commitment is something you may not get with a smaller firm, and something the other side will certainly take into consideration when they decide how to deal with your case. Can they shrug you off, draw things out and maybe you’ll just disappear? Maybe with some, especially if you are paying per hour, you just wont have the funds for long. But with a big national firm like AAH, they know that once they have taken your side, they are not going anywhere. The idea of trying to draw things out is just going to make things more expensive for them should they lose, not you, this instantly changes the possible outcomes right from the start, and in your favour.

    Get in with a national firm when using an injury solicitor in Croydon

    In conclusion, there really are a lot of reasons why you should choose a big firm when choosing, a couple listed above. These reasons just get more and more exaggerated the bigger the fish you are looking to catch, if you are up against a private individual (though often it will be their insurance firm anyway) you may not need the big guns. But if you are up against the bigger corporations, then you should really turn up with someone they not only know, but fear.
