What credentials should you look for in a personal injury management company
When it comes to choosing a personal injury management company to process your claim, you should opt for a law firm. A law firm will be able to offer you direct legal advice following an accident, to help you become better informed following a personal injury.
But what should you be looking out for in your search for a law firm?
Here’s three things to consider:
- Regulation by the Solicitors Regulation Authority
The Solicitors Regulation Authority regulates solicitors in England and Wales. It is important when choosing a law firm that you ensure that they are regulated by the SRA. You can do this quickly and easily on the SRA’s website. You can check whether a law firm is regulated by the SRA by using their search tool, which is free.
In addition to this, you can also check a lawyer’s legal compliance with their SRA ID number and their name. Simply head over to the SRA website to find out more about this. You can also report a lawyer or law firm if you feel that they are operating illegally.
- Experience and years’ in operation
A good way to assess whether a personal injury law firm is good at what they do is to see how many years they have been operating. If they have been operating for over five years, then this is a good indication that they are experienced enough to take your claim forward, and the longer they have been operating the better. This is also useful because it means that there will probably be more reviews and ‘chatter’ about the company online.
This can reveal a lot about a law firm, such as their level of customer care and how well they communicate with their clients, which is obviously an important consideration.
- Claims helplines for free, no obligation advice
Claims helplines are not really credentials, but they are undoubtedly a very useful way to get valuable advice following an accident. They are also a good way to find out more about a law firm for free and without obligation. By calling an accident advice helpline, you could find out how much you could claim and much more. To get the most out of such a service, we recommend that you have the following information to hand:
- The date your accident happened;
- Details about how your accident happened;
- Details about your injuries;
- Details about any evidence you have.
With this information, an accident helpline will be able to establish your eligibility for compensation and provide valuable advice following an accident. This information will help you to decide whether or not it is worth pursuing a personal injury claim.
