1. How can a solicitor help me?

It can be a very stressful period of time following your accident. Your injuries can introduce difficulties to your work life, earnings, rehabilitation, social life, personal care and more. Our job as your solicitor is to help you cope as best as possible with this stressful period.

We can take care of the legal business for you so that you have 1 less stress to be concerned about. On top of the legal business, we can also aid your recovery by sending you to the best medical experts as part of your rehabilitation. If you require personal carers, nursing carers or babysitters, then we can arrange everything for you. If you have lost work earnings from the accident, then we can claim this back for you. If you are a taxi driver (assuming your taxi is being repaired) and require a temporary licensed vehicle as you would like to get back to work as soon as possible, then again we can arrange this for you.

2. Why should I claim using a solicitor?


A solicitor will have studied and trained for up to 6 years to become fully qualified in this profession. During this time they will have accumulated the knowledge, background and the know-how to deal with your personal injury claim.


All solicitors in England and Wales are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). They are responsible for ensuring that the professional conduct and standard of all solicitors in England and Wales are consistent and at the highest level.


We recommend bringing personal injury claims to personal injury specialists. The advantage of making your claim with a specialist solicitor like Scott Rees & Co is that we have hundreds of personal injury solicitors who can share their experience with each other to give you the best chance of success with your claim.


Our personal injury solicitors are highly experienced with dealing with your type of claim. We will not be bullied or taken advantage of by insurers or the Defendants no matter how well-known or big a corporation they are. We will do our utmost to get the fairest result that you deserve.


We understand it can be quite a stressful period for you following your injury and accident. By bringing a claim to a solicitor, you will have one less worry to stress over as we essentially take over the responsibility of your claim. Let us handle your claim while you recover in peace and get your life back together.


As part of our stress-free service, we can arrange for the appropriate services that you require. For example, we can arrange for you to meet top medical professionals to assess your injuries and help you with your recovery. We can also arrange for the repairs to your vehicle if it was damaged in a road traffic accident.


A solicitor can process your personal injury claim much faster than if you acted alone. It is true that some claims can take a long time to conclude, but in most cases it is usually because we are waiting for a response from external factors that are outside of our control.

No win, no fee

Almost all personal injury solicitors adopt the no win no fee policy. This means there is no initial cost for using us. We can only charge you for our service if your claim is successful. We believe that this is very important as it gives you the chance to make a claim regardless of your financial standing.
