    Injury claims management vs personal injury law firm


    So, you are wondering whether you could make a personal injury claim stemming from an accident you experienced in the past three years. You are not alone in thinking along these lines. Many people are injured when they have done nothing wrong, whether on the roads, in public places or even at work. Such things are rare, but they are very real to those who experience them. Some people initially consider using an injury claims management company to take care of their case, but is this the right choice?

    The other option is a specialist law firm and there are many law firms across the country that deal with personal injury claims. If you were hurt in your local area, your first thought might be to look for a local firm that can help you make a claim, however this means spending time looking for a lawyer who handles such claims. Lawyers specialise in all kinds of areas, so even if you find one in your local area, there’s no guarantee they will handle your claim.

    What’s the difference between injury claims management and a law firm?

    The best way to think about an injury claims management company is to see it as a middleman. It is not an actual law firm, it simply acts between the injured party and a law firm, and then they take a cut of any compensation awarded. A specialist law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline is the actual law firm who will be representing you in your case, so it only makes sense to go to them directly.

    Did you know you need only ring one number to reach a team that regularly handles personal injury claims from people living all over the country? It’s true – Accident Advice Helpline was set up over 16 years ago to help people make injury claims easier and more accessible.

    Since we have a team of solicitors working on a variety of personal injury claims at any one time, we can ensure you have the best chance to be represented by the right person. For example, if you received your injury at work, you could be represented by a solicitor who regularly deals with work-based claims. Other solicitors might have more experience with claims relating to asbestos exposure, and so on.
