What kinds of accident compensation services are available?
If you’re looking for accident compensation services and support to make your personal injury claim, the options available to you can be numerous and confusing.
Here is our quick guide to the accident compensation services on offer both locally and over the internet or phone, with some of the good and bad points of each service highlighted for you.
Do It Yourself – is this an option?
Well the first thing to realise is that personal injury compensation claims are part of UK law. You are entering into the legal system and there is a prescribed legal process. This involves putting a case together and presenting it to the other party. Very many personal injury claims are settled before they ever get as far as court, but you need to start off in a manner that won’t be detrimental to your case if it does get as far as court. For that reason, DIY personal injury claiming is not a sensible option.
Can your local solicitor handle this for you? The answer is maybe. Solicitors, like many other professionals, tend to specialise. You wouldn’t ask your conveyancer to handle a divorce, would you? In the same way, not all local solicitors will have a great deal of experience with personal injury or employment law. This means that choosing the nearest solicitor on the high street could turn out to be an excellent choice, or could turn out to be completely inappropriate. It’s a bit of a gamble.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t find a local solicitor who has the expertise to offer accident compensation services. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have an extensive team of in-house specialist solicitors covering the whole of the United Kingdom. This means that we are able to offer the right expert solicitor who has experience in your type of case, in your local area. So you can find the right local solicitor for you – you just might appreciate some help in locating them.
If you look on the internet or even in the phone book, you will find many national firms of solicitors, foremost of which are Accident Advice Helpline. We offer specialist personal accident compensation services, and we are certainly experts in their field. So we will understand how to get the best from your case.
So what else is there – internet searches for claims management companies?
If you type “Accident Compensation Services” into a search engine, you will find numerous claims management companies. Claims management companies normally offer a claims process and can seem to be the most time efficient, hassle free way to pursue your case… However, these lack the resources, in-house staff and reputation of specialist law firms like Accident Advice Helpline.
