Online personal injury solicitor reviews can be a good place to start if you are contemplating which solicitor to select.
Compensation is limited to costs you have had to bear as a result of the injury and by set recommended 'general damages' depending on the nature of the injury. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for serious shoulder injuries could vary between £10,340 and £15,510 (based on 2015 market research).
The key issue to be aware of is how much of your compensation will be taken to cover these fees.
Will I need a local injury lawyer ?
The location of the law firm is not so critical as injury cases are typically managed without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should choose a law firm that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will need to attend a medical exam.
