Are you looking for an injury solicitor in St Annes on Sea? If so, it can be quite difficult to know where to start. However here are a few pointers.
Know your stuff
Personal injury law is a strange and alien territory for most of us. This means you need to do some research and build up your basic reserves of knowledge from the outset. This will help you know what to look for and see whether the injury solicitor in St Annes on Sea you’ve selected is truly able to do a decent job.

One thing that you’ll definitely need to keep in mind is whether or not you can make a claim. Each year thousands of people make the mistake of choosing a lawyer without knowing whether or not they stand much chance of winning.
Some lawyers are happy to let you make a claim as long as they get paid either way. If you are onto a losing case it’s better to know sooner rather than later, otherwise you could find yourself throwing good money down the drain.
First, ask yourself three questions:
- Was it your fault?
- How badly are you hurt?
- When did it happen?
Under UK law, there is a three-year time limit on when you can make a personal injury claim. As long as you’re within that, there should be nothing preventing you from claiming.
The accident must naturally not have been your fault, and the injury must be having a tangible effect on your lifestyle to qualify for compensation. After all, the law is there to help people who need it – not those who think they’ve spotted a way of making a fast buck.
Delving deeper into this issue, different aspects of personal injury law will be treated somewhat differently. A road traffic accident requires different skills from the lawyer than a slip in the street. This is why you need to find someone who specialises in your area.
The quality of advice given will be better, as too will be the representation in court.
