When you think about personal injury law, what springs to mind? For many its glitzy adverts and dodgy lawyers who hang around hospital waiting rooms waiting to pick up a sale. However, that doesn’t do justice to what is a very complex and important area of the legal system – even though if you’re looking for an injury solicitor in Muir of Ord you’ll naturally want to know how to avoid the less reputable individuals.
Look at the qualifications
Each solicitor should be well qualified and ideally be accredited by the Association of Personal Injury lawyers. This means they are at least responsible, reputable and professional.
Most solicitors will also tend to specialise in a few areas of personal injury law rather than just concentrating on the whole sector.
This is important as different types of injury can be treated in different ways. For example the process of making a claim for a simple fall in the street would be very different from the way compensation is contested with a road accident or an injury in the workplace.
Selecting someone with a good match of expertise will increase your chances of winning and improve the level of advice given throughout the process.
Where do you find these people?
One option would be to look on the internet. Open a search engine and type the words ‘injury solicitor in Muir of Ord’. This should produce a list of solicitors in your area and if you’re lucky you may even find an independent site which has a list of client reviews.
This is useful as it is always nice to find out what other people have had to say. While the odd bad review might be inevitable, if the majority are negative then it is worth while being watchful.
However, this is an unscreened and very limited search. You may not find the full selection of solicitors available in your area and you may also not get the best price. Lawyers charge different levels of fees with some offering a no win no fee service while others charging regardless of the outcome.
Another option would be to find a third party to help you out. This is a good idea as long as you feel you can trust that third party. At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve been helping people find their way through this strange area for years. We give free advice with no obligation to use any of our services.
