Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to provide both compassionate practical advice and expert legal guidance.

Do you have to choose a personal injury solicitor in Muirhead?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
In most cases, the only aspect that should be carried out 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.
Your lawyer will arrange for a medical practitioner in your area to conduct your medical.
The disparity in the amount of success fees between different solicitors is significant.
E.g. the amount retained by a successful Claimant accepting a settlement of £4,372 for a severe thumb dislocation might vary from £2,623 to £3,716.
