Specialist Personal Injury Solicitors: Thanks for your support in checking the expertise of my personal injury lawyer
Sincere thanks for the support when I really needed it!
I actually found your site by trawling through the results of a “google” search. I emailed you, as you know, because I did not know that a “law society personal injury panel” was in existence. After reading through your web site (it takes time but well worth the effort) being very informative and letting the general public, like me!, know of the various specialist lawyers out there. Through TV advertising most people now know of “no win, no fee” lawyers, very few indeed know that these solicitors may NOT be specialists in the personal injury field!) I decided to use your links to see if my lawyer was a member of the panel, He is not. I know that this does not necessarily mean he is “bad” lawyer, but in retrospect, if I had found your site earlier I would most certainly have chosen one with panel accreditation.
Other interesting things from the links on your site; I was able to lookup my lawyers’ details, company size, number of offices, fields of work, and obviously if they were accredited to any of the panels mentioned.
Various other things became apparent: Biggest is NOT always the best, being passed from one lawyer to another mid case is problematic. Lawyers promoted by “no win, no fee” advertising are not necessarily specialists in the field of claim, and many of the intricacies of funding “no win no fee” cases are far better explained on your site than in the documentation provided to me.
I am more than happy for you to use any of the above text for your site and feel free to put my name to it.
It’s a shame that more of the legal profession have not done the same and constructed informative sites like this. The “no win no fee” system at least now allows the “little man” to take huge businesses to court, but unless he has a dedicated specialist lawyer, as these companies invariably do, his prospects are slim.
Once again, thank you sincerely for your assistance, I wish you the very best for the future.
