Choosing a personal injury solicitor

If you have suffered personal injury in an accident caused by another party you are likely to be entitled to compensation for your injuries or losses. However, personal injury claims can be very complex and you will need a solicitor to handle the claim on your behalf.

In order to ensure that you claim is handled properly and without expensive legal bills you will need to take care in choosing the right solicitor.

First of all you should be certain that the solicitor is qualified to handle your claim. Many solicitors specialise in certain areas of law and it is essential that you choose a solicitor who is experienced in personal injury claims like yours. Personal injury claims are specialised and your solicitor will need to be aware of current trends in this area of the law.

If your claim is successful your solicitor's costs should be recoverable from the other party. However, if it is not successful you need to be certain that you will not have to pay your solicitor's fee. For this reason it is essential to make sure in advance that the solicitor works on a genuine "No Win No Fee" basis.

You need also to be sure that you will receive 100 per cent of your compensation yourself and that your solicitor does not make any deduction by way of fees.
