Being involved in an accident can have far-reaching physical, emotional and financial consequences. On top of that, if the accident was not your fault, pursuing legal action to obtain the compensation you deserve can be stressful, no matter how strong your case is. That’s why working with a solicitor you know, and trust, can make all the difference.
At Mooneerams Solicitors, we pride ourselves on giving expert legal advice with a personal touch. We work hard to nurture strong working relationships with our clients and thus earn their trust.
So, why is it so important to get to know your personal injury solicitor?
1. You will understand your solicitor’s expertise and experience
Personal injury law covers many types of cases, such as
A set of procedures and guidelines must be followed, legal principles applied, and complex damages calculated. Personal injury lawyers must have a thorough understanding of the law and its procedures. They must also have direct experience in personal injury litigation and dealing with insurance companies on the opposing side.
Getting to know your personal injury solicitor and understanding their experience and expertise will reassure you that they are suitably placed to fight your corner and secure the best possible outcome.
Some solicitors firms offer personal injury law as a service to potential clients, but only as part of a bigger legal practice incorporating other areas such as property, wills, probate and family law.
At Mooneerams, personal injury is all we do. We are even more niche that that, because we only act for Claimants (people making a claim).
In fact, we’re the only law firm in Wales that deals solely with Claimant personal injury claims. We have to be good at what we do and rest assured, we are – we wouldn’t have been in existence for almost 21 years if we weren’t!
By asking Mooneerams to handle your claim, you can be confident that you are in safe hands. We will ensure you receive the compensation you deserve and help you to move forwards in the most positive way possible.
2. You will be able to communicate effectively
Communication is key to the effective running of your case. We want you to feel comfortable speaking to us about your accident and how it has affected you. By helping us to understand the physical and mental impact the incident has had on you, we can get you the help and support you need, and ultimately obtain the appropriate level of compensation for you.
Don’t be afraid to ask your solicitor questions. It’s essential to do so if you don’t understand why something is being done, or why there appear to be long periods when nothing is happening with your claim.
A good personal injury solicitor will explain how their experience can help you and be happy to talk through any queries or concerns as often as needed.
3. Your solicitor will be able to give personal guidance and support
Whilst we use umbrella terms for different types of accidents e.g. accidents at work or accidents in public places, every accident is different, and so are its effects. An injury that might be nothing more than a ‘bit of an inconvenience to one victim’ can be one with severe consequences for another. Personal injury law does not use a “one size fits all” approach. Each client deserves an approach that is tailored to their specific injuries and the severity of their pain and suffering.
When you get to know your personal injury solicitor, they will develop an understanding of how your injuries impact your day-to-day life and be in a position to assess the amount of compensation required to redress the harm caused.
4. You will enjoy a relationship of mutual understanding and trust
Mutual understanding and trust are the hallmarks of a successful solicitor-client relationship. You must trust that your dedicated solicitor has the skill and experience required to obtain the optimum result. In addition, trust that he or she will also listen to your concerns, answer any queries and support you every step.
In our experience, the best way to gain our clients’ trust is for us to get to know one another.
We encourage regular communication and open, honest dialogue. The whole team at Mooneerams are friendly, approachable and genuinely care about getting you the best possible result. We work in collaboration with you, always taking your point of view into account and keeping you updated on the progress of your case.
Choosing your personal injury solicitor
The first step in your personal injury claim is to choose a solicitor. Here are a few of our top tips on how to go about deciding on the right one for you:
Speak to family and friends to get any recommendations. Remember though – it’s specialist personal injury solicitors. Just because a firm is good at drafting wills, or conveying houses, it doesn’t mean they handle personal injury cases.
Search for personal injury firms – try a few different search terms. If you want to use a firm that is near to where you live, search using the term: ‘personal injury solicitors near me’.
When you find a firm that seems interesting, check if they specialise in personal injury claims and if they don’t, move on.
Draw up a shortlist of a few firms that interest you.
Read reviews of the firms, from previous clients. You can take a look at some of the feedback Mooneerams have received from clients here.
Browse the firm’s website to get an idea of the type of practice they are and whether they ‘feel’ right for you.
It’s important to find out how your claim will be funded. Some firms offer no-win, no-fee arrangements, and others require that you fund the claim yourself. To assist our clients in getting the justice they deserve regardless of their financial situation, we handle most claims on a No Win No Fee basis wherever possible.
