Does it really matter if your chosen solicitor for your Accident Claim is local?
After all you can do everything via the internet and phone these days cant you?
Most Personal Injury Solicitors don’t want you popping in to ‘discuss’ what’s happening with your accident claim in any case. Margins are so tight these days that spending time chatting to a client face to face is actively discouraged. Those that care do. A local Solicitor (within 20 miles of your home) is an essential requirement. They know the local area, they can if required meet you, they can check the location of the accident. In addition follow up statements, all many things that a Solicitor that is at the other end of the country can not do, and basically will not do. Those solicitors can rely upon hiding behind a computer or ignoring your calls if it suits them. Whilst certainly there is no guarantee a local solicitor will not do the same this unlikely as you can just turn up and ask to be seen.
A local Solicitor is also very much motivated by getting family and friend referrals from providing excellent service. So a local claimant (you) with local contacts is their lifeblood.
