Can I Change My Solicitor If I’m Not Happy?

Can I change my solicitor if I’m not happy?

If you’ve been in a serious accident, your personal injury claim is your one opportunity to seek compensation for your injuries and financial losses.

Sometimes the service you receive might not live up to your expectations. If this turns out to be the case, you’re always free to change solicitors and move your claim to another firm.

You’re not legally obliged to continue using a firm, even if they’ve accepted your instructions and started work on your case.

When deciding on your solicitor, choose someone that has the relevant knowledge and expertise to deal with your case. You don’t need to use the insurer’s nominated firm, nor should you use your local family firm if they lack the experience you need. Instead choose an injury lawyer that you can rely on to fight your cause.

Why might I change my personal injury lawyer?

There’s many reasons why you might wish to change your solicitor. Some clients come to us feeling frustrated that they’re being passed between solicitors. Or maybe you’re concerned that your case isn’t progressing or being investigated properly.

Deciding to change solicitors may be the only viable option if it becomes clear that your solicitor doesn’t have the necessary skills to deal with the complexity of your personal injury case.
