As an area of law, personal injury is one of the newest and most rapidly growing, particularly here in the UK. Every year, thousands of people are injured as a result of accidents that were not their fault, whether at work, on the roads or in a public place.

What this means is that for law firms with staff who are fully trained in the specifics of personal injury law, there is the opportunity for a lucrative and steady income stream. In addition to this, there is also the chance to do some good in society by helping those that have been injured to receive justice and financial compensation, as well as highlighting areas that need to be addressed to prevent other victims being injured.

As with any area of law, in order to tap into the wealth of personal injury cases that are out there and deliver an expert service to your clients, you will need to ensure that your staff are fully versed in the relevant laws and procedures, and that’s where personal injury training comes in.

Sharpening your team’s skills

Even if your team have some experience in dealing with personal injury cases, it is wise to periodically update their knowledge and skills with some additional legal training. Personal injury laws are constantly changing and evolving, and in order to deliver the best possible service to your clients, you need to arm your team with all the latest information.

Conversely, out of date legal training and information is likely to yield sub-standard results, and even potentially lead to costly mistakes.

In addition to the laws changing, and new test cases altering the playing field, it’s also important to remember that people are fallible. Particularly in instances where a solicitor only occasionally deals with personal injury cases, they may forget some of what they have learnt – what is known technically as ‘getting rusty’. Giving them extra personal injury training from time to time will help ensure that they stay sharp and are ready to deal with an injury claim to the best of their abilities.

Choosing a personal injury training course

Many training providers offer a variety of legal training courses, so you can find the one that is most ideally suited to your firm and its team of legal professionals. On top of this, many providers are happy to further tweak and tailor their courses to your specific needs.

For example, if your firm is new to personal injury law, you might opt for a course that covers the basics and a full spectrum of relevant issues. Or if your team is already experienced in handling personal injury claims, you might have them undertake some extra legal training which just covers the latest developments or more advanced areas of the law.

If you want to target a more specific area within the field, such as road traffic accident claims or work related injuries, you might contact a training provider to deliver this content to your staff. Finally, you may wish to protect yourself to a degree, by ensuring that your staff are trained in how to avoid negligence claims.
