London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 30, 2009 -- Traditional, old-fashioned, and drowning in dry paperwork. Is that how you think of a firm of personal injury solicitors?
Then think again. The legal profession has moved into the twenty-first century, and is fast becoming a paperless profession.
Most people find it quicker to communicate by phone or email than by post. Postal strikes cause regular disruption, and apart from the time you actually need to write or type a letter, under normal circumstances first class mail can take up to 3 working days to be delivered. This seems like an age compared to the online claims assessment form of personal injury solicitors 100% Compensation, which takes only 2 minutes to fill in and is delivered instantaneously. With a response guaranteed within 24 hours, the firm shows that the legal profession is geared up to the needs of its internet-savvy customers.
In a recent report the Ministry of Justice supported the growing trend for online communication, concluding that "new technologies and marketing ideas can benefit legal service providers and consumers alike."
The courts themselves are getting in on the act, with most civil and criminal courtrooms having WiFi installed so that lawyers can catch up on research and correspondence between court sittings. So instead of wading through dusty books in his lunch break, the judge could be on twitter or Facebook.
But it's not just correspondence or hearings that are online. The personal injury solicitors used by 100% Compensation allow you to track the progress of your case using their claims tracker service. Users can log on to a secure area of the 100% Compensation website and see what stage their claim has reached. If they are waiting to hear from a medical expert or dealing with court forms, you can clearly see this from the online records.
The less formal style of an email lends itself to plain English, rather than legal jargon. This in itself shapes the relationship between lawyer and client. So personal injury solicitors can concisely explain the law or procedure, rather than rattle on for pages. Rather than being remote, aloof figures; 100% Compensation claim that their solicitors are friendly and sympathetic whenever their clients phone or email for advice.
