If you have become injured or unwell due to the actions or negligence of someone else you may be entitled to compensation.

To claim any compensation that you may be owed, you will need to find a personal injury solicitor to make your claim on your behalf. When searching for a personal injury solicitor you must choose the very best in experience, knowledge, and reliability.

Here are a few things you should look for in a personal injury solicitor.

Qualifications And Accreditation

You should always ensure that the solicitor you choose is accredited with a governing body and is fully qualified to do the work required of them. This is vital to ensuring that you get the best possible service.

Check with an industry body such as the Law Society Of Ireland to find professional, trustworthy solicitors. 

Reputation

You should choose a reputable solicitor. Check out any online reviews for the solicitor you are thinking of choosing and ensure that they are well established and have positive feedback. This can be done online, by looking at law magazines, or by word of mouth. What’s important is that you gain a well rounded view of the solicitor you are thinking of using.

You can also look out for any awards and industry recognition that a solicitor or firm has been honoured with. This can be as helpful as checking qualifications and accreditation as it will show that your chosen solicitor has done significant work in the field and is among the leaders in the industry. Take a look at this Award Winning Personal Injury Solicitor in Dublin as an example of what a leading, elite solicitor in personal injury looks like.

Track Record

You will want to choose a personal injury solicitor with a proven track record of winning claims to ensure that your claim succeeds.

You will also need to check that they have experience with the specific injury that you have sustained. Check a solicitor’s testimonials and see what kind of injuries and compensation claims they have dealt with. Choose the solicitor that has the most relevant track record to your claim.

You should also thoroughly understand a solicitor’s fees before choosing the right firm. Many will offer ‘no win, no fee’ agreements for personal injury claims. This will ensure that you are not out of pocket regardless of the outcome of your claim. Whatever the fees, you should ensure that you understand them fully before committing to a firm.

Personality

You must be comfortable with the solicitor that you choose. This is of course a personal choice but you should feel happy with the solicitor, that they have your best interests at heart and are approachable and friendly as well as knowledgeable.

You will, after all, be entrusting your solicitor with personal details involving your health and your claim may need you to have to provide traumatic testimony. You should ensure that your solicitor is someone you are confident is trustworthy and understanding.
