Top 5 Tips for Finding a Personal Injury Lawyer in the UK

Accidents can happen to anyone and there’s only so much tell anyone to be careful. If you do find yourself in the unfortunate position of needing to hire a personal injury lawyers, here are some tips that can help you find one of the best accident claims lawyers for you:-

Hire your Injury Lawyer in UK with These Tips

  1. Begin with a helpful background check on all of the top available injury lawyers

Since there are many personal injury lawyers in the UK, you’ll never know which one is the most appropriate for you. But don’t worry – just figure it out by doing some research. Make a list for yourself (the average number of injury lawyers people will contact is around 3) and from there, choose the best lawyer that suits your situation or case. Look into his or her background so that, before your conversation, at least you know about the lawyer you are going to hire. 

  1. Do not be afraid to ask questions about your compensation claim

When you meet the personal injury lawyer of your choice, do not be afraid to ask questions. It is a useful way to know the person and the firm more. Communication is the best way to ensure that both of you understand the purpose of the meeting. Plus, open communication builds trust between you as the client and the lawyer you are going to work with. 

  1. Consider the Professional Fee for your Accident Lawyer

Before anything else, let’s not forget the cost of the services your lawyer is going to do for you. This is very important. Consider signing a contract that tells about the scope of work and the fees to be paid. Beware of companies that aren’t actually firms of personal injury lawyers or, if it’s a claims management company, check they’re specialised in personal injury claims and that they have great client feedback. All of them should tell you the amount of their professional fee and, if it’s no win no fee, check what percentage they’re proposing to take should the claim be successful. Note some injury lawyers will offer 100% of the compensation to you since they can recover costs from the other site. Others can charge anywhere from 10% to 33% or, in more rare cases, 50%+. Ensure you know what to expect before instructing them and make sure you shop around!

  1. Take a look at your personal injury lawyers bio

Aside from knowing the basic information about him or her, take a look at their work experience too. You can usually find this from the bio page on their injury law firm’s website. This is very helpful in that you’ll know how much experience your lawyer has and how likely they are to be able to help you settle for the most amount of compensation. A more experienced lawyer can usually give you faster and more effective advice and they can ensure you that your case is in the right hands. 

  1. Consider your accident claims lawyer’s personal injury specialisation

In finding a personal injury lawyer, you should know about their specialties or expertise. Note that ‘personal injury lawyer’ is a generic term covering a broad range of injury claims. It means that they may not handle all types of personal injury cases. Find a personal injury lawyer that matches your case. E.g. for a medical negligence case, look for a specialist medical negligence lawyer. For an accidents at work case, choose a lawyer who has a great deal of experience in handling workplace accident claims.

BONUS tip 6 – hire locally. Make sure your injury lawyer actually works in the ‘jurisdiction’ where you are (i.e. in the right country), and then it’s better if they’re local to you. National injury law firms and companies can be great too but you may not get the personalised service with local knowledge you may have been expecting.
