Many people who have suffered an injury that was someone else’s fault believe that local personal injury solicitors are their best bet to help them get the compensation that they deserve. They assume that dealing with their compensation claim will require regular meetings with the solicitor that is acting on their behalf.
In fact, a few years back, many people had a local family solicitor who dealt with everything from their wills to their house purchases and sales. They would use that solicitor for their personal injury claims as well if they needed to.
That is no longer the case. Most personal injury compensation claims can be dealt with remotely now. This means that you no longer need to find local personal injury solicitors and are free to use the best solicitor for your claim no matter where that solicitor is located.
Why would I not want to use local personal injury solicitors?
There is a wide range of different types of personal injury claim, and each one requires a different approach. Examples of types of claim include:
- accidents at work
- slips, trips and falls
- injuries caused by defective products
- road traffic accidents
- medical malpractice claims
Similarly, there are differences between how injury claims are dealt with and how industrial disease claims are dealt with. Using a solicitor that specialises in your type of claim rather than using local personal injury solicitors gives you a better chance of securing the full amount of compensation due to you.
Will I have to attend any meetings with my solicitor?
If you use a law firm like Accident Advice Helpline (AAH), it is unlikely that you would have to attend any meetings at all. You may need to attend a medical assessment to determine the severity of the injury that you sustained as a result of your accident. However, most claimants do not even have to attend court. The claims are dealt with over the telephone. AAH’s telephone advice line is manned by friendly staff, and is available 24-hours a day.
AAH has been helping people make personal injury compensation claims for over fifteen years, and works with hundreds of solicitors that specialise in personal injury compensation claims. These solicitors work on a no win, no fee* basis which means that you do not have to worry about facing a large legal bill if you decide to make a compensation claim, regardless of whether you win or lose your case.
AAH’s patron is consumer champion and TV personality Esther Rantzen. Using Accident Advice Helpline to make your personal injury compensation claim rather than local personal injury solicitors has benefits. You are guaranteed to be helped by a solicitor who understands your case and has the experience required to secure the best possible outcome for you.
