The personal injury business of the 21st Century is far more competitive than it has ever been, not least because it is being conducted against the backdrop of a recession. As a result, firms are branching out and investigating more specialist areas of legislation, tapping into a new and emerging marketplace. The importance of further personal injury training has long been understood, but is it a means to finding new clients in new areas of the Law?

A Model Business

As a business owner, you have developed a strong business model that gives you a realistic idea of your hopes from your company and what to expect over a certain period of time. However, business models cannot cater for the financial landscape and, more specifically, they cannot predict how the Law will change and just what this will mean to your turnover. It may well be that business owners need their models to be more flexible than they first thought, and additional legal training could be the best way to incorporate the flexibility now and for the future.

The Law is a constantly changing entity, and if you want to be taken seriously by your competitors and your clients then you have to change with it. Further legal training will not only support your reputation, but will allow you to identify opportunities long in advance of those whose skill-sets and knowledge is lacking by comparison.

React to Legal and Economic Changes

Despite its bad press, personal injury litigation is still on the increase. Statistics from the AA show that more road traffic accidents are being pursued through the courts and the Health and Safety Executive has found that more employees are prepared to undertake legal action against negligent employers. If you are relying on outdated information to secure wins, it will not be long before those wins become a thing of the past and your reputation follows suit. Keeping up to date with the changes in the Law should be incorporated into your business model, so that you are prepared to react to both legal and economic changes.

Small businesses in particular are struggling to deal with the seemingly constant Law reforms, meaning that many of them fall foul of unexpected pitfalls. Being able to offer your company’s services in a consulting capacity could add another string to your bow. These services are currently few and far between, yet the niche has not been filled. Ensuring that your staff are au fait with current legal affairs can make your service incredibly valuable to those who will come to need it most.

Forewarned is Forearmed

The future for the personal injury industry is potentially bright, as long as firms are prepared to help shape it themselves. While there will always be a demand for justice, the way in which the courts view personal injury lawyers and the processes involved is changing. The only way to be able to stay ahead of those changes is to be as informed about them as possible. Further personal injury training is one of the best ways to ensure that you are both forewarned and forearmed.

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters.
