Q: What Services Could Be Provided By A Solicitor?

Q: Is It Helpful To Have A Local Accident Claim Solicitor
A: Our panel of accident claims solicitors can communicate with their clients remotely, whether that be through email, over the phone or via the post. so you do not have to use a local accident claim solicitor to handle your case.
Q: How Important Is It To See A Doctor?
A: To make a personal injury claim, you will first need to be seen by a doctor. They will produce a detailed medical report which your solicitor will use to value your claim. The doctor may ask you to complete a questionnaire before or during the assessment regarding your injuries. They will also ask questions about how you have been affected and examine your injury. The point of the report is to gather evidence to support the injuries that you have sustained through no fault of your own. The doctor will provide a prognosis period and also provide advice regarding any future treatment that may be required.
Could I Be Examined By A Doctor Locally?
A: Yes. Our solicitors can arrange for you to see one of the local physicians that we work with. They will try to keep how far you need to travel to see a doctor to a minimum. We work with a panel of doctors in this area. These are based in locations such as,

Would accident claims solicitors covering Basildon assist with a claim on behalf of someone else?
Our personal injury solicitors covering Basildon do not just work with the injured parties themselves in some cases. In some cases, they help parents claim on behalf of their children for accidents that they were injured in. If a child is involved in an accident that was not their fault, and somebody else could be held liable for, they are too young to make a claim on their own. Instead, a parent or responsible adults could help make a claim on their behalf. This person would be called a litigation friend. They would be able to make decisions on behalf of the child and with the child’s best interests in mind. In such cases, when compensation is payable, it is usually paid into a trust. The child would be able to access the trust when they reached a pre-determined age. However, a child could make a claim for themselves once they turn 18 for an accident that happened when they were a child. They could do so if no claim has been made their behalf before that. However, this could cause problems if evidence is harder to retrieve.
We would be happy to chat to you about whether you could make a claim on behalf of your child. We could talk you through the process in more detail so you can decide whether you should go ahead with the claim now or whether you should wait. You would have until your child’s 18th birthday to claim for them.
What could I consider investigating when choosing accident claims solicitors covering Basildon?
While it might be clear from their website and documentation that a solicitor or law firm is authorised eyes and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, and that they are registered in England and Wales, this may not tell you about the levels of service you would receive. When making a shortlist of law firms and solicitors for your claim, it could be wise to consider the following:
- Would they be able to help you pursue your claim on and no win no fee basis?
- Do they have good reviews on independent websites?
- How many years of experience do they have in pursuing cases like yours?
- Do they have a proven track record? How successful have they been in the past?
- What have other claimants liked about their legal services?
