Advice for those searching for a lawyer
Compensation for a personal injury claim can take months, and even years in the most serious claims, to be agreed. All solicitors are regulated by the SRA, however service levels can vary.
Your solicitor should be someone you can rely on throughout your claim to provide both practical advice and legal guidance.
Does the location of the lawyer matter?
You do not need to pick a law firm near you.
In most cases, the only aspect that will need to be performed locally is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national network of medical professionals.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
The disparity in the amount of success fees and insurance premiums between solicitors working on CFAs (Conditional Fee Agreement) often surprises Claimants.
