Choosing a Personal Injury Solicitor
Choosing a Personal Injury Solicitor in Dublin is not easy. To start with, it means that you will have endured an accident and suffered an injury! Choosing a Personal Injury Solicitor in Dublin can be daunting as there are so many firms to choose from, and everyone who you speak with will have their own opinions on who to choose, who to avoid etc.
If you have suffered a car accident, an accident at work, medical negligence, a motorcycle accident or a slip in a public place you need a Solicitor who specialises in this area of law. A family member may have had a good experience with a Solicitor when buying their house, but this does not mean that this Solicitor will do a good job when it comes to pursuing a personal injury case.
If you have suffered a car accident, an accident at work, medical negligence or a slip in a public place and need a Personal Injury Solicitor in Dublin, we would advise that you consider the following points:
1. Does the Solicitor specialise in personal injury law? If not, then it may best best to find a firm that does. Solicitors are similar to tradesmen in the construction industry (as a comparison) - you may consider all builders or tradesmen to be similar, but this is not the case. You would not ask an electrician to plumb your new bathroom! In a similar way you should not ask a solicitor who specialises in wills and probate to take on your personal injury case. You need the right firm with a proven track record in pursuing and winning accident claims.
2. Does the Solicitor have a good reputation? Word of mouth is priceless when it comes to choosing a personal injury Solicitor in Dublin. If a friend tells you that their Solicitor did a job with their accident claim, then you should always consider that firm. Similarly, it is best to avoid the firms that friends have had bad experiences with.
3. Does the Solicitor have a good website? You can learn a lot about a Dublin Personal Injury Solicitor from their website. Is it clear that they specialise in car accidents? Is it clear that they specialise in accidents at work? If not, you need to consider if this firm is appropriate for your accident claim. When looking at a Dublin Personal Injury Solicitors website, you should also check to ensure that they display the Law Society of Ireland logo which shows that the firm is regulated and authorised by the Law Society of Ireland.
4. Call them up and make up your own mind.

Do they answer the phone right away?
Do you get through to a Solicitor right away, and not get fobbed off by a receptionist?
Do you like the Solicitor?
Do you feel confident in the advice that you were given?
