    Specialists Or All Rounders When Looking at an Injury Solicitor in Cumbria

    When looking for an injury solicitor in Cumbria, one of the key questions you are probably wondering whether you should go for a specialist or an all-rounder? A specialist will be one of those firms that advertise themselves as those that focus only, or primarily, on injuries. And of course the all-rounder would not actually talk about themselves like this, but would rather just call themselves lawyers, and would be happy to take on this sort of case.

    It may seem obvious on gut instinct which choice is better, and you are right, there is no twist ending here. But it is good to truly understand why, so this article is though just confirming what you believe already, it is also showing you why in details these ideas are not only right, but important.

    The All-Rounders

    There are tens of thousands of people who can act as an injury solicitor in Cumbria, and they do not necessarily have to be someone who advertises this special service. They would be a lawyer, or course (or at least we would hope so!), but anyone can make a claim – you could even do it yourself. And though they will have all the skills that are needed (as a minimum), there is something called experience that you can’t put a price on.

    The Specialists

    The specialists however are different. These are firms like AAH, Accident Advice Helpline, that are not only a huge national firm, but they have their feet firmly planted in the injury law field. This means experience, and that is everything! Of course it means that your chances of winning a claim is higher in general, but also that your chances of an early settlement is greater (if you can imagine how much more worried they will be when you walk in with a large national firm, you can see how true this is).

    The Inbetweens

    There are – sort of – a third group as well. These are large firms that advertise in many different avenues. These certainly have some punching power, for sure, but they would still be somewhat lesser (in general) than the true specialists – this counts for how they are seen as much as how we can judge their track record (and indeed possible future record).

    What is best for you

    When looking for an injury solicitor in Cumbria, you should really get what is best for you, and it should be someone that covers a few different things. For instance, they should know what they are doing; this does not mean that should just know a bit about the law – that is given – but they actually have a specialism and should be one of the best at what they do (would you want anything less?).

    Also, they should have experience! This not only proves that they know what they are doing, but it also (IMPORTANTLY) signals that they know what they are doing! This will have a huge effect on the outcomes and if a case even begins in the first place.
