Keylaw no-win, no-fee solicitors are offering free legal advice in your local area
Leading Welsh law firm Hugh James has launched a branded claims management product ‘Keylaw’ to deliver no-win, no fee legal services for personal injury claims.
Hugh James, Wales’ largest law firm and a Top 100 UK law firm will now offer its personal injury legal services directly to the customer by launching a no win no fee solution for injury and medical negligence claims called Keylaw. The service will be delivered through an online platform and a mobile street team of injury advisers who will be locating their Keylaw ‘pods’ across several Welsh towns and cities.
The move into the consumer market has been somewhat driven by changes implemented in April 2013 as part of new legal reforms that aim to put a stop to claims farming and the apparent ‘claims culture’ that exists in the UK.
Free legal advice for personal injury claims
Matthew Florendine of Hugh James explains “Claims management companies have historically been very good at marketing to the public. They have served a purpose in educating people about their right to claim. The challenge now is that with the ban on referral fees that was brought in by new legal reforms in April, the current business model for claims managers has had to change, many choosing the exit the market all together.”
The expectation that claims managers will exit the market leaves the customer with the slight predicament of where to take their claims. Solicitors in the past have been unable to talk to clients on their level and are often thought of as being inaccessible and expensive. This could potentially mean that unless solicitors become more innovative in how they approach clients and begin to break down barriers, that those who want to make a claim may find it more difficult to do so, not knowing how or who to approach.
The driving aim for Keylaw is to deliver a high-quality, fast and efficient legal solution that gets claims settled in the best interest of the individual and serves to help the thousands of people that are injured each year in incidents that wasn’t their fault. Keylaw’s no win no fee solicitors offer legal services for road traffic accidents, accidents in the work or public places and medical negligence claims.
Florendine continues “As solicitors we need to learn from claims managers and be more accessible and our Keylaw product will help us to do this. Both the website and our street team are there to make it easier for anyone who wants to make a claim.
“Unlike claims management companies however, we are a law firm, with experienced legal professionals and put our clients at the forefront of everything we do. Keylaw will offer the benefits of accessibility alongside the security of dealing with legal experts. We also offer support and advice on rehabilitation, after care services and no win no fee funding. In short, we combine the best of both worlds. “
The Keylaw mobile street team will be locating themselves in various towns and cities across Wales from 12 July 2013. As injury advisers they will be on hand to help customers understand what should be expected from making a claim for compensation as well as what can be expected in terms of rehabilitation and support back to good health.
This is good news for people in Wales as it means they will get the best advice directly from experts with a proven track record in personal injury claims. The legal professionals behind Keylaw are listed at the top of their field in several legal rankings for Welsh solicitors including the Legal 500.
The message from Hugh James is clear. Keylaw will ensure that every client receives a personal service from a dedicated legal professional who will deal with their claim and recover the maximum possible compensation in the shortest possible time.
