Lingering Holiday Reminders

Most of us come back to work with fond memories of our holidays abroad. Memories that linger, prompted by hearing a song on the car stereo, a recently changed profile picture on social media sites, the smell of exotic food as we pass by a restaurant or even a balmy Autumn evening that means we can sit out late into the night enjoying a drink with friends.

Bright Prospects For Claimant Lawyers

We came across some more interesting research last month, this time published by First 4 Lawyers. Despite the many concerns within today’s personal injury and clinical negligence arena, the study predicted a surprisingly buoyant outlook for claimant firms with smaller firms in particular expecting a more profitable future as a result of the stronger relationships they are forming within local communities.

Yet another interesting statistic found its way across our desks last month. Every two minutes a worker, somewhere in the UK, is made ill through stress at work. Continue reading

Speed, Alcohol & Tons Of Metal

Three things I’m sure most if not all of us would fear coming together on the UK’s roads. But alas, with the Christmas party season fast approaching, two recent surveys in particular caught our eyes suggesting that this common sense view and the everyday realities of driving on Britain’s roads couldn’t be farther apart. No wonder there are so many road traffic collisions, injuries and deaths. Continue reading

Rest Assured Your Clients Are Happy

Last year, at about this time, we shared with you the terrific results from our annual customer research exercise – the independently audited survey which asks over 350 of you to rate us on a wide variety of operating criteria.

Data Protection Legislation Continues To Evolve

Last month we brought you the news that the Information Commissioner’s Office had lambasted GPs and insurance firms over a lack of patient data privacy and we also touched on the fact that more stringent data regulation is being developed for a 2017 launch, to take into account the many technological advances of the past two decades.

Getting To Grips With Dermatitis

The industrial disease and work-related illness experts over at our specialist subsidiary, MLA, deal with all sorts of weird-sounding and difficult to pronounce conditions as part of their normal daily routine. They are familiar with guiding industry partners and their clients through sometimes prolonged but nearly always complicated medical investigations. Continue reading

Your Professional Rehabilitation Partner

Rehabilitation plays a pivotal role in helping clients recover physically, and psychologically, from injuries sustained as a result of an accident and that naturally, here at Speed, we believe we are your ideal partner when it comes to all types of treatment. Continue reading

A Lot Can Change in Two Years

It’s been just over two years now since Speed’s acquisition of Medical Legal Appointments Ltd – a medical agency specialising in industrial disease related claims. Since that time a lot has happened, both internally as we have exploited operational synergies, and externally, as the personal injury market has continued to evolve. Continue reading

Delicate Balancing Act

It can often be difficult to get the balance between planning and action just right. When planning something, how much is too much? What level of detail do you need to give to a plan before you take some action? Should you commit every granular action to paper – real or virtual – just in case you are run over by a bus and somebody new has to come in and execute your plan? Or should you just map out the major landmarks on the journey leaving whoever embarks upon it the freedom to go their own way? Continue reading
