How To Find A Personal Injury Lawyer

Finding a personal injury lawyer can be difficult, despite the fact that there are so many out there. This is because you need to find a company you can trust. Work accident compensation claims in particular are tricky.

You are likely to have severe injuries, such as a broken leg or arm, which impact your daily life significantly and mean you have to take time off work. You may have problems with colleagues if they were involved in the incident or the environment in which it took place. You may be worried about how your boss will react to a work compensation claim, or be concerned that they think less of you.

Choosing A Personal Injury Lawyer

All these reasons and more are why it’s important to find a personal injury lawyer that you get on with. Such claims will realistically take at least a year to complete, and often two years or more if there are delays, so it’s important to ensure you’re working with someone you can get on with and who has your best interests at heart. Don’t choose personal injury lawyers just because you’ve seen them advertised a lot on TV or because they are the first result when you search Google. It’s important to get personal recommendations. Failing that, reviews from impartial websites (rather than ones which have been created by the company in question or have paid reviews and affiliate links) can work well.

Once you have a shortlist of companies you’re thinking about, give each of them a call and find out how they operate. If they say they’ll call you back and don’t, or you’re kept on hold, knock them off the list. The most important thing is clear communication from the start, or you risk taking on a personal injury lawyer who is disorganised, repeatedly asks for the same information, or is impossible to get hold of. The most important thing is that you’re comfortable with whoever is dealing with your claim.

When choosing a personal injury lawyer, it’s important to ask the right questions. Queries such as ‘How much compensation will I get?’, whilst they may be well-intentioned, are almost impossible to provide an accurate answer on. This is especially the case when you’re looking at joint responsibility claims and out of court settlements. ‘No win no fee’ lawyers can be a good choice if you are short on budget as they recover the costs from the other side.
