We all hope that an accident will never happen to us, but for many this is not the case. If you do suffer a personal injury through an accident on the road or at work that wasn’t your fault, or by the negligence of a doctor or surgeon, then you need your case to be dealt with swiftly and expertly. Nothing is more important that your recovery and your future.
People who have not previously needed a personal injury lawyer are often pushed into instructing a solicitor selected by their insurance company. Victims are often incorrectly told by their insurers that they must use their appointed solicitors, who may be 300 miles away from you, and will not offer a named person who will get to know you and your case. Often firms and companies claim to be specialists but in fact offer a low quality service by unqualified staff. The choice of which solicitor to use is yours, so choose wisely.
As one of the country’s leading firm of personal injury and medical negligence solicitors, here are 5 reasons to choose Clarke Willmott in your time of need:
1. Our highly qualified teams
Our Partners are accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, Action Against Medical Accidents and the Law Society; independent bodies who rigorously assess lawyers carrying out personal injury work, to ensure quality and value for money. Our client testimonies, successful cases and the reputation of our lawyers has also led to our teams being named leaders in their regions in the Chambers and Partners UK Guide, the “WhatCar?” rankings of the legal world.
2. Our regional offices and client facing ethos
Many other firms will only meet you at strategic points in your case, if at all. Your lawyer cannot truly understand you or your case if they have not seen the effects of your injury for themselves. With offices all over the country (Taunton, Bristol, London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Southampton and Manchester), you are never too far away from one of our specialist lawyers, which means we can give you the time you deserve, face-to-face or at your home if you wish.
3. Our partner led service
Many other firms use unqualified case handlers to run your claim, often meaning you will be dealing with different people who may not know all of the details of your case and what needs to be done. All of Clarke Willmott’s lawyers are specialists in what they do. Your case will be run by or overseen by one of our Partners, the most senior lawyers in our business. Our Partner led service means that you will always receive the best possible service and advice. If your lawyer is on leave or unavailable, there will be someone on hand to update you and advise you on your case.
4. Our experience
Our lawyers handle cases of the utmost complexity, many of which make the headlines or even new law. They have acted for victims of air disasters, high profile road-traffic accidents such as the 2011 M5 tragedy near Taunton, as well as major clinical negligence cases involving the leading case on Cryogenics, fertility and the most complex of birth injury cases. Our breadth of knowledge means that we have the expertise to advise you fully on every aspect of personal injury or clinical negligence. Being a full service firm we have people who can help with your other legal needs arising from your injury, be that helping with your employment position, advising on the purchase of your new home adapted for your independence or protecting your interests if you lose capacity to manage your affairs. This service is not available from many firms who only provide personal injury advice.
5. Our focus on you
Everything we do is focused on you and your needs. We not only advise you on the law, but we can access rehabilitation and treatment from the country’s most highly regarded clinicians. We take time to understand what is important to you and your family and what you want to achieve out of your life post injury. This means we can tailor our service to you and are able to be flexible in how we work and communicate with you ensuring that you receive the support you need.
