Has the Internet made the Accident Claim Solicitor for Compensation a Thing of the Past?
The explosion of the information on the internet means the public are able to do so many jobs for themselves that were previously only done by professionals, from writing a will to selling a house. The role of the accident claim solicitor for compensation must surely be a thing of the past?
The explosion of knowledge has led to an explosion of public awareness that they can empower themselves by carrying out some fairly mind blowing and complex jobs. Who could have imagined that you would be able to write a will and become involved in something like estate planning? A few years ago this would have been all but impossible. The legal profession taking a particular ‘bashing’ at the hands of the general public, so is the role of the accident claim solicitor next in line?
To answer this question, it would be wise to perhaps look at the insurance companies, do we see them closing down their legal departments and employing a couple of technically minded school leavers to take care of claims? The answer is of course no and in fact, the converse is true. Many of these organisations are expanding their legal departments, employing some of the very best legal minds. Do we see large corporations closing down their legal departments? Again, a resounding no. This trend of expansion should give us an indication, a clue if you will, as to the complexity of the issues they deal with on a day to day basis. Of course, it could be very noble for accident claimants to undertake this task for themselves and replace the humble accident claim solicitor, noble it might be; wise it is not.
To successfully take on the might and power of the giant global organisations, some of whom are trying to renege on their duty to pay claims to those they have wronged, takes a certain type of expertise. An accident injury solicitor specialising in successfully winning claims for their clients has spent years learning adapting to the corporate manoeuvres and methods employed by these huge companies.
Probably the extent the internet can be used to start claim proceedings would be to Google companies that can help you rather than take the task on yourself, companies like Accident Advice Helpline who can offer you a specialist solicitor who can represent you and act on your behalf, holding your hand each step of the way. There are some things the internet cannot do or provide for successfully and taking the role of the accident claim solicitor for compensation is one such thing. This is one instance that speaks of reinventing the wheel – trying to pursue your own claim makes no sense. It is best left to the experts.
