MG Legal’s expert team have over 80 years’ experience dealing with a range of Personal Injury claims and are on-hand to give you the advice that you need.
To help you get started, we have listed the most helpful questions you should ask your Personal Injury Lancaster solicitors during the initial consultations. This will help you find out the relevant information that you need to know, and will help you decide how to proceed with your claims.
#1 – Are Personal Injury Claims your Specialisation?
It is very important to know that your Lancaster solicitors specialise in Personal Injury. Many firms out there handle different law cases and sometimes because of this, they do not have the knowledge to handle your personal injury case properly. In the worst cases, when your solicitor is not that knowledgeable in personal injury, you could lose the case and you may not get proper compensation. At MG Legal Lancaster solicitors, the Personal Injury team are specialists, concentrating on helping people who have been the victim of an accident or negligence which has left them injured.
#2 – Have you had Experience with a Similar Case Before?
Personal Injury law is one area that puts a lot of weight on experience. When your Lancaster solicitors has experience handling past cases that are very similar to yours, they can often apply the same knowledge that they implemented in those cases so your case will be treated a similar way. Before you know it, you are on your way to winning your Personal Injury claim, obtaining the compensation that you deserve.
#3 – Are You Comfortable Taking a Case to Trial?
In Personal Injury law, your Lancaster solicitors will more than likely always aim to settle your claim out of Court. It helps you to avoid some of the stresses of going to Court, and it can help to keep costs down (although, this is not something you will need to worry about with MG Legal, as they offer “No Win, No Fee” Personal Injury claims). However, in the area of Personal Injury, it is important that your Lancaster solicitor is not afraid to take your case to Court if it is necessary. This is why it is important to ask them about their experience and success in trials. You may find yourself at a disadvantage if the Lancaster solicitors you chose has not been even inside a Court, let alone dealt with a trial!
You should look for a Lancaster solicitor that is willing to do whatever they can to settle things out of Court but is not afraid to go to Court when they realise that a trial is more advantageous to you.
#4 – How Can We Communicate with Each Other?
Just like a doctor-patient or a buyer-seller relationship, it is important to maintain a very strong communication in a solicitor-client relationship. To some people, legal terms could sound like legal jargon. So, you want your Lancaster solicitors to be there to answer all the questions you have in a clear, concise fashion.
Communication should also always be present for the proper management of your case. MG Legal Lancaster solicitors are always on hand to give you proper advice and guidance, as well as to answer any questions that you may have.
