Will I have to choose a solicitor near me?
Many injury lawyers operate throughout England and Wales, allowing Claimants to make a choice based on factors including level of success fees charged and quality of service.
In most cases, the only aspect that does require a local service 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 medical network.
