Rebecca Brown on choosing a Personal Injury solicitor

Rebecca discusses why it is vital you choose the correct solicitor when making a Personal Injury Claim.

If you, or a member of your family have suffered a personal injury, then it is vital that you pick a solicitor with the appropriate experience as it will make a difference, not just to the eventual outcome of your claim, but also from the very earliest stages of the claims process.

One of our Personal Injury Solicitors, Rebecca Brown, recently wrote an article for the Law Plain and Simple website on just this topic. You can read the whole of Rebecca's article, and other articles contributed by the solicitors at Canter Levin & Berg now by visiting the Law Plain and Simple website.

If you need to speak confidentially with a solicitor about a possible personal injury compensation claim, then you talk to Rebecca or one of her colleagues here at Canter Levin & Berg Solicitors by calling 0151 239 1000.

Why is choosing the right solicitor important to your claim?

Thankfully most personal injury claims are minor whiplash injuries following car accidents or claims for sprains/broken bones/burns/cuts etc caused by accidents in work or by slipping or tripping up in public streets or public places - all of which are usually unpleasant experiences but short term. However occasionally accidents can be life changing or even life ending.

In those situations it is vital you and your family pick the right solicitor as not every solicitor will have enough experience dealing with this area of law. Choosing the right solicitor is a great way to make sure not only that you get the maximum amount of compensation at the end of the case but also that at the beginning of your case they can arrange the best quality rehabilitation for you, as quickly as possible and funded by whoever is to blame for your accident.

A good solicitor is especially important as UK law has very low valuations for severe injuries. For example you could be left unable to use your arms and legs but the maximum compensation would still only be around £300,000. If you could use your arms but not your legs then the compensation would drop to up to around £200,000.

The point of a compensation claim is to put you back in the same financial position you would have been in if the accident hadn't occurred. This is obviously a complicated area and it is usually where you and your solicitor will have the biggest "fight" with the paying party.
