CHOOSING A SOLICITOR
Whilst it is vital that you obtain legal advice early on in your matter, it is equally as important to instruct a solicitor with the right knowledge and expertise for your circumstances. Not all family lawyers practice regularly in care work and not all care lawyers are experienced in non-accidental injury work. You are entitled to (and you should) ask any solicitor you want to work with what their experience is so that you can be sure that they are the right solicitor for your case.
There are lots of benefits to instructing a solicitor experienced in non-accidental injury work, rather than your local care or family lawyer. Not only do they understand the law in this area, but they will understand the medical aspect of the case including medical conditions that can replicate symptoms of NAI, the range of different medical experts (some good, others not so) and which of them would be appropriate in your case and, importantly, how to cross-examine those experts who give evidence in your case.
