What is a personal injury solicitor?
A personal injury solicitor can represent you if you are injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault.
This type of solicitor works with you to secure compensation, and may also help you to access support services such as vehicle repair and rehabilitation.
Why use a personal injury solicitor?
If you have been injured in an accident that you did not cause, the first step in claiming compensation is to consult a firm of personal injury solicitors. Talking to a specialist will help you to understand whether you can claim compensation as a result of your accident.
As well as answering questions and advising whether you can claim, a personal injury solicitor manages the process of making a claim, and will:
- Represent your legal interests to the party who caused your accident
- Secure the right level of compensation for your injuries and losses
Your solicitor should lead you through the process:
- Outlining in simple terms what will happen
- Giving an estimate of how much compensation you may be due
- Contacting the other party to negotiate on your behalf
- Organising paperwork for your claim
- Keeping you updated on developments
- Helping you access further support if necessary
What makes a good personal injury solicitor?
In the aftermath of an accident, it’s common to feel vulnerable. At a time like this, it’s important to find the right person to fight on your behalf. A good personal injury solicitor will ensure you receive every penny of the compensation to which you’re entitled, at the highest level for your injury.
A reputable firm will be authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), and will show this on its website and documentation. It should assess your situation for free, and not pressure you to claim. Most will operate on a no win no fee** basis, so you will not have to pay anything upfront.
A good personal injury solicitor will deal directly with the insurance company. Insurance companies sometimes try to reduce compensation awards by offering low settlements, but your solicitor will know whether the level of compensation offered is equivalent to what you’re actually due. If not, your solicitor will fight to get you that level of compensation.
