“Very good, quick and professional service. I couldn’t ask for more.”

Here is a handy guide to choosing the solicitors who will have the best chance of putting your case forward in the strongest possible terms and achieving the level of compensation you deserve after an accident at work:

How To Choose The Best Injury At Work Lawyers

Here are the key qualities to look for when choosing the solicitors you engage to represent you in a personal injury claim:

1) Specialist Experience In Personal Injury Law

Most lawyers are specialists in one field of law. This makes sense – even a single field has a huge weight of laws and precedents to understand and be aware of.

For injuries sustained at work, you will need a specialist personal injury solicitor. This is the only kind who can provide the assistance and support you need and will have the best chance of guiding your claim through to a successful conclusion.

For instance, at Grieves Solicitors, we have over 76 years of combined specialist experience in dealing with personal injury claims. What’s more, our principal is a member of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel.

This is the kind of niche expertise you should be looking for in the firm you choose to represent you.

2) A Track Record Of Success

With such a large number of personal injury lawyers out there, it is easy to imagine that the results a given firm can achieve can be rather varied.

This should place a track record of successful claims high up your list of things to be looking for in a potential legal representative.

Although it’s not always easy to judge this, some of the things you can look for include:

  • Their track record of cases won
  • Personal feedback from friends and family who have used the firm before
  • Online reviews and testimonials
  • How much compensation they have achieved for past clients (for example, at Grieves Solicitors we have won millions of pounds for deserving claimants)

3) The Ability To Talk Directly With Your Solicitor

At many larger firms, it is relatively normal for personal injury claims to be assigned to paralegals or claims handlers who are not fully qualified.

If you do have a fully qualified solicitor assigned to your case at one of these firms, you may have to deal with their receptionist or assistant.

Ideally, it is best to be able to talk with your lawyer directly and know that they are fully qualified.

It is also best to avoid working through a claims management company, agents, or other middlemen. At Grieves Solicitors, we simply do not work through middlemen because we know how much it dilutes the quality of service you can expect to receive.

“I can’t think of any way you could improve your service as I have found everything from start to finish first class.”

4) A No-Win, No-Fee Basis

Most specialist personal injury lawyers will work – or offer the option to work – on a no-win, no-fee basis. You will sometimes see this is written as a “Conditional Fee Agreement” or CFA.

A Conditional Fee Agreement off-loads any legal costs associated with your case safely into the future.

In most cases, this is very desirable. Especially in situations such as after an accident at work, where you might already feel financially unstable, you do not want any further expenditure.

This means using a firm that relies on loan agreements with clients (these often accrue interest) and other arrangements is rarely a good way to proceed.

Do make sure you read the agreement carefully and check to ensure that your solicitors’ rates appear reasonable for the industry and relative to their track record of success.

5) Free Advice And Consultation At The Start

With so much on the line in your decision as to which injury at work lawyer will give you the best results, getting more information upfront is always useful.

To this end, it is always worth looking for a firm that will provide a free initial consultation with zero obligation to use their services afterwards.

This can also be a great way to understand the relative strengths and weaknesses of your claim before you commit to a lengthy legal process.
