Following an accident, your priority will be to recover from your injuries, and resume your everyday life. Many people find that their injuries prevent them from doing this for some time, however, or that they are unable to do the things they loved because of the injuries that they sustained. Some people also find themselves financially disadvantaged because of their accident. If any of these things apply to you then you might consider making a personal injury claim, to seek justice for the injuries that you sustained.
Under the circumstances, it is essential that you receive the best legal advice, from a lawyer and law firm that specialises in your injuries. UK Claim Lawyers, for example, have access to all the best lawyers in the United Kingdom who specialise in road traffic accidents, accidents in the workplace, slips, trips and falls, cases of industrial disease and illness, and much more, so that a relevant and experienced lawyer is assigned to every case.
How is Good Legal Advice Defined?
In personal injury law, good legal advice can be defined as any advice that leads to the client making a positive decision regarding whether to claim or not. Good legal advice is always impartial, with no obligation, and it should always be provided in confidence.
Where Can I find the Best Lawyers?
The best lawyers tend to be picked up by the biggest, national law firms, since they have the most connections, and therefore, access to the widest pools of talent.
A good lawyer is somebody with case experience that is relevant to yours, and somebody with a ‘high success rate’, which is the percentage of the amount of cases they have won. A success rate of 80 per cent or more is considered excellent for a personal injury lawyer. The lawyer you are in contact with should also not be juggling more than a few cases at once; you want a level of exclusivity, so that you know time and effort will be put into your claim.
What Should I Look for in the Law Firm?
The law firm should have been operating for several years, or if it is a new practice, then the experience of the lawyers working for them should be very high. In England and Wales, law firms must also be regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). You should always ensure that the law firm you contact is regulated by a respective body, because unfortunately there are unscrupulous law firms out there. The law firm should also have a good reputation online. Use Google or another search engine to search for reviews and user testimonials, to assess whether the law firm is right for your claim.
