The personal injury lawyer market is now worth in excess of £4 billion in the UK, having stagnated slightly as a result of the coronavirus-pandemic and associated lockdowns of 2020 and H1 of 2021.
This reflects the value of claims and the amount of cash paid out in compensation, and the fact that clinical claims against the NHS has increased by 133% since 2006/07.
But what are the benefits of choosing the right personal injury for you, and what should you look for in a legal representative? Let’s find out!
Professional and Objective Lawyers are the Best
It’s important to choose personal injury lawyers in this field that are highly professional and objective, as this can translate into numerous benefits for you as a client.
For example, they’ll initially provide an honest and objective consultation, only advising you to a pursue a claim if it can be proven and has a viable chance of success.
Similarly, professional lawyers will use their knowledge, skill and expertise to ensure a quick and positive resolution, while simultaneously being able to negotiate a fair and desirable settlement with the third-party healthcare organisation in question.
You Need Skilled Negotiators in Your Corner
This is another key consideration, as negotiation skills are integral when attempting to secure a settlement and achieve a compensation payout that meets your expectations and matches your injuries or subsequent loss of earnings.
In order to realise this benefit, you’ll need to focus on hiring lawyers that have observable and proven negotiation skills, particularly when going up against large healthcare trusts or multi-national insurers.
Not only does having a skilled negotiator in your corner increase your chances of achieving a positive resolution and settlement, but they may also be able to negotiate a much larger compensation payout in some instances.
They Can Resolve Your Case Quickly
Choosing the right solicitor also unlocks far greater levels of knowledge, competency and experience, making it more likely that they’ll resolve your claim quickly (without compromising on the eventual outcome).
This applies to every stage of the process, from collating information and analysing medical records to demonstrating liability (and causation) and driving as quick a negotiation as possible.
They can also file and manage your claim on your behalf as you recuperate both physically and mentally from your injuries. This way, you can optimise your recovery while delegating responsibility for your compensation.
This is also important when you consider the three-year timeframe in which you have to make a personal injury claim. So, prioritise lawyers that can work quickly and prioritise your case where possible.
