Why Choose a Solicitor with Accreditation?

Choosing a solicitor to help with a medical negligence claim can seem quite daunting when there is so much choice. It is important to have a solicitor who is a specialist in medical negligence, as the claims process can be quite complicated. You will want to be sure that your solicitor has the necessary expertise and experience to guide you to the best possible outcome.

One of the best ways to find a solicitor who understands medical negligence and personal injury is to look for an accreditation from an organisation like the Law Society, AvMA (Action Against Medical Accidents), or APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers).

All three organisations set rigorous standards for lawyers to meet before they can say that they are accredited, and that means you can have confidence that you are talking to a true specialist in their field of law. Here at Enable Law we have many lawyers that are accredited by the schemes for Medical Negligence or Personal Injury, and you can now find them more easily by looking for the relevant badge on their profile pages.

The member of our team who most recently attained the standard is Charlotte Morgan, who works in our Taunton office. Charlotte is now accredited as a medical negligence specialist by the Law Society, a real endorsement of her expertise.

The Law Society explain on their website that “The schemes promote high standards in legal service provision and ensure that clients are easily able to identify legal practitioners with proven competency in given areas of law. They also ensure that scheme members maintain relevant standards of competency and expertise by means of periodic reselection, re-accreditation and re-authorisation”

If a solicitor has Law Society accreditation then you can be reassured that their experience, working practices and track record have been independently assessed, and they have been deemed to be specialists in their practice area, meaning they are capable of dealing with the complexities and demands of your claim.
