When it comes to making a claim for compensation for complex conditions like Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), choosing the right solicitor is crucial. The expertise and experience of your legal representation can significantly impact the outcome of your case. Here are some essential questions to ask when selecting a law firm:

1. Do you focus on all personal injury claims, or do you specialise? – Many CRPS sufferers make the mistake of turning to general personal injury law firms that do not specialise in chronic pain conditions. CRPS is a highly specialised area within personal injury law, and not all solicitors have the necessary experience to handle these cases effectively. At Brian Barr Solicitors, we focus specifically on CRPS and similar conditions, and have the knowledge required to navigate the complexities of CRPS cases, and because of this we often have cases transferred to us.

2. What is your track record with CRPS cases? – Our solicitors have over 40 years of combined experience and a proven track record of achieving high settlements for our clients. For instance, we recently secured an extraordinary settlement of £700,000 for a client who was initially estimated to receive no more than £20,000 with her previous solicitors.

3. Do you have a network of specialists to support my case? – CRPS cases often require the input of various medical experts to build a robust claim. At Brian Barr Solicitors, we have a well-developed network of specialists who contribute to the process, allowing us to build you a strong case.

4. How do you approach client care and communication? – Effective communication and client care are essential components of the legal process, especially in complex and sensitive cases like those involving CRPS, where the solicitor has to be compassionate and understand the full extent of your disability to allow recovery of the appropriate level of compensation.

It is vital you instruct a solicitor who truly understands the complexities of CRPS and has the experience to handle such challenging cases, in order to get the compensation you deserve. By selecting a specialist firm like Brian Barr Solicitors, you can be confident that your case is in the best possible hands.
