Personal Injury Lawyers in the UK

Sep 4, 2008
A personal injury lawyer is the solicitor or barrister representing you when making an injury claim against a third party. They will help you obtain a compensation for the emotional and physical trauma a third party has caused you due to their negligent behaviour. Personal injury can include a range of many situations and conditions. Some examples of personal injury that you can file a claim for include: slip and fall injuries, car accidents, wrongful death, occupational injuries, nursing home abuse, medical negligence, exposure to toxic materials, product defect injury, and many more. Solicitors practice in many fields and those who deal only with personal injury claims are known as personal injury lawyers. It is essential to hire a personal injury lawyer who is highly experienced with personal injury claims so you get the compensation you deserve.

To investigate the legal expertise and experience of an injury lawyer you are interested in hiring, find out if your injury lawyer is a member of a UK recognised law society. Do not fall for the APIL trick that injury lawyers like to play on unsuspecting people looking to hire an experienced injury lawyer. Association of Personal Injury Lawyers is an organisation set up for personal injury lawyers which is based on only the fees they pay and not by the expertise they have. A lawyer advertising that he is a member of the APIL is most likely inexperienced and not a good lawyer to represent you for making your injury claim. Keep an eye out for companies that pretend to be solicitors or lawyers but actually only perform the task of referring you to them. These companies do not have your best interests in mind when referring you to a lawyer or solicitor so make sure you get in touch directly with an experienced solicitor or lawyer.

Before approaching any personal injury lawyers check your insurance policy to see whether it covers the legal costs and expenses of making an injury claim. If that is the case, usually your insurance company will have a few solicitors of their own that you can choose from, to represent you for making your injury claim. In the UK, there are 'no win, no fee' rules which state that you don't have to pay your personal injury lawyer unless he wins the case for you and is able to obtain the compensation you deserve. If you win, you will then pay the injury lawyer with the compensation you receive. It is important that an injury lawyer effectively communicates with you through regular phone calls, be able to inform you of any updates and explain any technical and medical terminology related to the case. The contract terms, conditions, fee structure should all be discussed up front so you are not left clueless and in the dark till the end. If you feel you are not getting the satisfaction of an experienced injury lawyer representing you then you do have the right to approach someone else. Hire a personal injury lawyer to help you get the compensation you deserve, so you can stop suffering and start living again.
