With politicians and economists predicting a gloomy outlook for 2012, all businesses need to work that little bit harder to ensure that they don’t fall victim to the potential global downturn. Adaptability is going to be the buzzword over the next 12 months, and firms that can meet the challenges of a demanding socio-economic environment are the ones that will succeed in the next year.

Finding an edge

For law firms, the best way to stay one step ahead of the competition is to offer a broad range of high quality services. If your business does not currently offer its services to those who have suffered a personal injury as a result of road traffic or work-related accidents, you may be missing out on a vital avenue for extra business.

Every year there are hundreds of thousands of road traffic accidents in the UK. Some of these may be very minor, but in other cases one or more individuals may be badly hurt or worse. In these cases where someone is hurt as a result of an accident which wasn’t their fault, they are often entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

A growing need for personal injury solicitors

In addition to road traffic accidents, thousands of people around the country are injured or suffer loss as a result of accidents at work, trips and falls in public places, medical negligence and industrial diseases.

In order to properly help these people to get the justice and financial recompense they deserve, and to secure an extra income stream for your law firm, you will need to make sure that your solicitors have the right knowledge and experience to achieve the kind of solid results that strong legal reputations are built on.

That’s where personal injury training comes in. Sending some or all of your staff on a legal training course dealing with personal injury law provides greater opportunities for your business. Once your staff are fully trained in the latest developments in personal injury law, you can begin marketing your services in that area, whether you choose to have a specialist department that deals with personal injuries and road traffic accidents, or simply offer it as an additional service.

Keeping up to speed

If your firm already has some experience in this field, it can still benefit from undertaking extra personal injury training. The laws relating to personal injury claims are changing all the time, and additional legal training at regular intervals can help you to ensure that your staff are operating according to the most recent developments, best practice methods and test cases.

Additional personal injury training can also enable you to concentrate and improve on areas that you feel may be currently weak or lacking in your service. For example, if you have had problems recently with people making fraudulent personal injury claims, you may wish to send your staff on a specialist course that deals with identifying fraudulent claims. Alternatively, you might want to specialise in dealing with the growing number of whiplash claims arising on the UK’s roads, and so send one or more of your solicitors on a legal training course for low velocity impact claims.
