How your solicitor can help you with your personal injury claim

Though it is possible to fight your own case with your personal injury claim, you are more likely to achieve the results you are looking for with the help of a solicitor, who can offer you expert advice and guidance.
Once you have given your solicitor a detailed account of the circumstances of your injury, your solicitor will be able to help you by guiding you on how likely your case is to succeed, and, if it is likely you will succeed, how much you may be able to claim in compensation. They will also be able to take you through the various legal processes which are involved in furthering your personal injury claim, as well as any associated fees which may be incurred.
In order for a solicitor to be able to fully help you, however, they will need to have various details to hand. Essential details they will need include when, where and how the accident happened, contact details of any witnesses, and the details of your injury, as well as a record of a medical diagnosis and treatment from a doctor.
Depending on the circumstances, your solicitor may also need to know if you are a member of a trade union or if you have legal expenses insurance policies, as this may reduce the amount you have to pay for legal representation. They may also wish to see certain documents, such as proof of loss of earnings, insurance policies, and any other evidence to support your claim such as previous accidents in similar circumstances.
