How can you tell if a personal injury solicitor is any good at what they do? The same question can be raised about many professional services. How do you know if a dentist is any good? You assume they have the academic knowledge required for a university degree in the subject and rarely hear someone saying, ”That filling I got last week was superb” do you?! The same can be said about lawyers. So what should you look for when selecting the right personal injury lawyer?
1. Badges of Approval
All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), so this is by no means an indication of excellence! Membership of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) tells the consumer very little about the skills and expertise of the lawyer they appoint.
2. First Hand Experience
Do they truly understand what it is like to be injured in a no fault accident? Personal injury specialist and founder of JS Miller Solicitors, Jeanette Miller was a trainee solicitor when she was involved in a serious accident at work in 1997 suffering a head and back injury. Thankfully she made a full recovery from her injuries but when she herself went through the claims process she was met with many difficulties along the way. Her claim was eventually resolved but not without a stressful fight to achieve justice!
3. Tailored Care and Mutual Desire
Jeanette, also known as “Miss Justice” for her strong desire to help accident victims where many other solicitors have given up on them, explains:
“While we are efficient in our work, our clients know that we truly care about them and they are made to feel more than just a number.”
Jeanette herself takes an interest in every client’s case and emphasizes the importance of thinking outside of the box to deliver what her clients want. Her team understands that recovering compensation is one of the main objectives in pursuing a claim but often getting the right rehab treatment and financial planning is equally as important.
The firm is a boutique personal injury firm offering home and hospital visits to any client with a serious injury claim along with a promise to seek interim payments at the earliest opportunity.
Mr Arora’s claim was rejected by several personal injury firms before he found the JS Miller team. Here is what he had to say about them:
“I was recommended to JS Miller Solicitors by another law firm who were under the impression that my Personal Injury claim did not have a high enough success rate. JS Miller Solicitors however, studied my case carefully, met up with me and ascertained that the case did indeed stand a good chance of winning.
“Throughout the whole proceedings, I was liaising mostly with Anthony Wardle and occasionally with Jeanette Miller herself. They adopted a holistic and caring approach, in order to help me to cope with the extreme stress that I was going through. This they did, by listening to me and taking on board what I was saying, advising me accordingly, and also consoling me as and when necessary. I would recommend JS Miller Solicitors without any hesitation.”
