Find an Injury solicitor

Accidents happen, it is one of the facts of life, but if you have suffered because of someone else's actions, or lack of action, then a personal injury claim can help ease the financial burden.

If you've decided to try and get compensation for a personal injury you've suffered then you'll probably need the help of a personal injury accident claim solicitor to help you through the process.

When claiming for a personal injury your chosen personal injury claim solicitor will first check that blame can be placed on an individual, a company or other organisation, as the fundamental part of a personal injury claim is that someone was negligent i.e. that they either:

  • acted without due caution;
  • created something without suitable care; or
  • repaired something without proper regard.

If you are considering making a claim then it is often advised that you see a personal injury solicitor sooner rather than later. For most negligence claims there is a three-year limit however the sooner you make your claim the clearer you will be of the facts.

When choosing a personal injury claim company to handle your case, one of the first things it is worth checking is whether you are dealing with an actual personal injury claim solicitor or a claims manager.

The difference between a personal injury claim solicitor and a claims manager (also known as a claims assessor) is that a personal injury claims solicitor can deal with your case directly whether or not it gets to court. Many law firms offering this service will give you the name of the solicitor who will deal with your case and from then on you can deal with the one who will be fighting your personal injury case directly. A claims manager on the other hand is not qualified to fight your case in court, they are effectively a go-between between you and the solicitor. So although you may still get one single point of contact they themselves will not be able to take your case to court.

The other benefit of choosing a personal injury claim solicitor over a claims manager is that personal injury claim solicitors are bound by the Law Society rules and regulations, which include professional conduct rules. This not only ensures quality of service but also gives you a clear option if you are unhappy with the service your personal injury claim solicitor has provided. For claims assessors there is no such regulation.
