If you are not satisfied with a service provided, say, energy provider or phone company, it’s very easy to switch to gain a better deal. Even when it comes to doctors, a second opinion is easily accessible and often recommended, so why should it not be the same for law?
As in any industry, the quality of legal representation varies. Ranging from: those who prefer a cheap win, and quick payday, regardless of their client’s compensation award; to those, who offer a high quality, personal and professional service.
At Truth Legal, we are the latter. We offer care and professionalism in every case taken on and can prove it by our track record. Often helping clients, which are unsatisfied with their solicitors, we provide a clear, common sense approach ensuring our clients get the correct compensation for losses suffered as a result of personal injury.

A Recent Success
In a recent case, a client approached us, unhappy with the value of his claim calculated by his solicitors. His case had been valued at around £50,000 by his previous representation; he felt that due to the long-lasting effects of his injuries, he deserved more.
The client, lets call him John, was a HGV driver, renting a property owned by the Defendant. On the 28th October 2014, John was walking downstairs when he slipped. The Defendant had previously removed the handrail; as a result John fell to the bottom of the staircase. He badly broke both bones in his left leg and spent four days in hospital, undergoing surgery to have metal plates and pins inserted. John’s leg was in a cast for 4 months and was told by doctors that a full recovery may never be possible. John’s landlord evicted him, as he could no longer pay the rent as he was unable to work due to his injuries sustained in the accident.
Our team of Personal Injury Lawyers managed to secure a settlement of £200,000 for John, four times his previous representation’s estimation!
The goal in any personal injury claim is to put the claimant back in a position where the accident had not happened at all. Applying this includes: the recovery of immediate losses caused by the accident, in this case time missed off work and compensation for pain and suffering; but also, recovery for any long-term losses in earning potential. In this case, it was the prolonged future loss of earning that our client’s previous solicitors had seriously miscalculated.
