Compensation Explained

The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) have recently published this brochure to explain the rules surrounding compensation claims.
Don't get mugged by an insurer
Don't get mugged by an insurer. Use a solicitor
Accident victims who turn down an insurer’s initial offer and take legal advice get on average 2-3 times more compensation. Please see The Law Society’s Personal Injury Campaign 2013. This campaign focuses on promoting the value and benefits of using a local solicitor to deal with your personal injury matter, as opposed to proceeding with the first representative who contacts you following an accident, notably an’ insurer’.
  • By choosing a local solicitor, you can be safe in the knowledge that you can always pop into the office to speak to your solicitor as opposed to solely dealing over the telephone and email, which would more than likely be the case should you choose to proceed through a claims management company or representative suggested by your insurer.
  • Solicitors are experts in the law surrounding personal injury, whereas by using an insurer suggested company, you run the risk of not getting the quality, experienced advice you can guarantee by instructing a solicitor to deal with your case.
  • By proceeding through an insurer or claims management company, your case would more than likely be assigned to a case handler who may not be legally trained or qualified. These claims handlers also run 100s of files on their own and so cannot always provide the client care you deserve.
  • A personal Injury solicitor will always act impartially, with the client’s best interest at heart throughout the whole claim process.
