Why Choose the New Deal

There are lots of companies out there claiming to be specialists in personal injury and accident claims. Some are good, many aren’t. Choosing the right injury lawyer can be a minefield for the unwary, so we have listed six good reasons why you should choose Slee Blackwell’s New Deal.

Here’s the deal

1. We are a firm of solicitors

“So what?” you might say. “Aren’t all the companies I see advertised qualified solicitors?” The simple answer to this is that most of the companies offering personal injury services on the internet aren’t solicitors at all. In fact many of them do not even have as much as a GCSE in law! Since no win-no fee was introduced this area of law has attracted numerous chancers, looking to make a quick buck. You do not have to be a qualified solicitor to offer personal injury claim services, and these people take advantage of this fact. Most consumers are unable to differentiate between these claims companies and genuine solicitors and this confusion has allowed the cowboys to flourish. By coming direct to a firm of real solicitors you are assured of receiving a quality service from properly qualified and regulated lawyers. We are members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and the firm itself is Lexcel accredited under The Law Society’s kite mark scheme. By trusting your accident claim to a genuine and reputable firm of solicitors you will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are in safe hands.

2. We guarantee that if you lose there will be nothing to pay.

This promise lies at the heart of our Win – No Fee guarantee. The New Deal is a Fair Deal. Accident victims have suffered enough and should not have to face the prospect of paying legal fees if they don’t win their claim. Our promise is a simple one; If we deal with your injury claim we guarantee you will not have to pay a penny if you don’t win your case. This promise applies not just to the legal fees but also the expenses we pay on your behalf such as the cost of a medical report.

3. There are no loans to take out or interest to pay

Unlike some accident claim companies, we don’t expect you to fund your own expenses, such as court fees or medical reports. Nor do we require you to take out a loan to pay those expenses and then charge you interest. We will fund your personal injury claim all the way, paying whatever expenses are required as we go. And if you don’t win the case we will bear the cost ourselves so that you don’t owe anything.

4. We will fight for maximum compensation

The lawyers in our personal injury team specialise in accident compensation. We match up the circumstances of your accident claim with a lawyer who has experience in that particular field. So, a specialist head injury solicitor will deal with a head injury claim, a specialist accident at work solicitor will deal with an accident in the workplace claim. We pride ourselves on providing a personal service of the very highest quality and aim to maximise the compensation payable in every personal injury claim we handle.

5. We still believe in the benefits of the traditional solicitor/client relationship

Unlike many of our competitors we do not employ an army of faceless “claims handlers” without a legal qualification to their name. We are not one of these factory style, legal warehouses where you never get to speak to the same person twice. We offer a high quality, personal service. We still value the traditional solicitor/client relationship. We find that the best results are achieved when the lawyer has time to develop a one on one relationship with the client. This leads to a bond of trust developing and enables us to fully understand what impact the accident has had on your life. In turn, this allows us to ensure that maximum compensation is recovered which fully compensates you for all the consequences of the injury.

6. We will make sure that the lawyer assigned to your case is the right one for you

We will match up the circumstances of your accident and injury with the lawyer who has the most relevant experience and expertise. Unlike the volume driven claims factories, where clients are nothing more than a number, we do not dish out claims to case handlers on a random basis, irrespective of qualifications and experience. Most of our personal injury team are “Grade A” solicitors (a county court term, used to designate the most experienced category of lawyer) rather than paralegals. Some injury claims are routine and can be handled by competent junior lawyers. However, if your accident is one which would benefit from being handled by a more experienced solicitor then we will make sure you are assigned to one. You can be assured that we will not fob you off with an inexperienced paralegal working from a computer software programme, as happens in some companies.

For example, if you have suffered a head injury then we will refer you to our specialist head injury solicitor who has been dealing with head injury claims for more than 20 years. Alternatively, if you have been injured at work then your claim will be assigned to our workplace accident specialist.
