Avoid Personal Injury Compensation Pitfalls

It’s one thing to decide to seek fair personal injury compensation following your accident, but it’s another thing to successfully achieve it.  Which is why choosing the right personal injury litigation path is so important, and the very first thing you should consider.

Insurance broker’s solicitor VS your independent solicitor

It is not uncommon when you have an accident for your insurance broker or legal expenses insurer to “steer” you towards their choice of personal injury solicitors.  But you don’t have to make this choice.  You are free to appoint your own, independent solicitor to act on your behalf.

Insurance broker’s solicitor: There is no guarantee that the solicitors recommended will be nearby (in fact it’s more likely they’ll be at the other side of the country).  You are more likely to be dealt with by a junior, relatively inexperienced member of staff, and there are quite often many changes to the team members dealing with your claim.


Independent solicitor: You can choose an independent personal injury solicitor closer to home.  The benefit of this approach means you are able to experience a more personal level of service.  Usually delivered consistently by the same senior, highly experienced personal injury solicitor who is dedicated to your compensation claim.  No call centre switchboards, and the benefit of face to face meetings if you’d prefer.

In addition, if you choose a qualified and experienced personal injury solicitor to act on your behalf you will also find that they are proactive in seeking out ways to fund your claim, including no win no pay and legal expenses insurance.

So, our advice?  Take control of your personal injury compensation claim.  Work with a specialist personal injury solicitor and be sure that the legal advice you act on is accurate and tailored to your individual circumstances.
