Asking an accident solicitor in Huyton to assist with your whiplash injury claim
Fortunately, a large proportion of road traffic accidents result in minor injuries such as whiplash, cuts and bruises but nothing more serious. However, whiplash injuries in particular have become the subject of insurance fraud investigations. With recent changes to the ‘no win, no fee’ agreement that has enabled victims of non-fault accidents to make a claim without having to pay anything to start the process comes a more rigorous pursuit of those who make fraudulent whiplash claims.
If you live in the Huyton area and are looking for an accident solicitor in Huyton to represent your claim but cannot find one. Fear not you can use national specialists Accident Advice Helpline instead.
You can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for honest, expert advice or visit their website first and complete their simple 30-second test. It will show you if you qualify for making a claim. If you do, you can use the online compensation calculator to get an estimate of how much your claim might be worth.
Insurers have become the target of organised crime. Fraudsters claim on self-induced motor accidents where they target an entirely innocent motorist, who is forced to crash into the back of the fraudster’s vehicle. The fraudster then claims against the innocent motorist’s insurance. It is estimated that every year UK insurers lose around £1.6 billion in fraudulent insurance claims and of this figure some £200 million relate to organised crime.
For this reason, claims for whiplash and similarly difficult to diagnose injuries must be supported by plenty of medical evidence. If you suffered such an injury in the last 3 years and would like to make a claim, you should keep all documents relating to doctor’s and hospital visits in a folder or file and be prepared for your solicitor to arrange for an independent medical assessment to support your case.
The government plans to create independent medical panels to improve the diagnosis of whiplash injuries, which should prevent the majority of fraudulent claims.
Being represented by the best possible legal expert
Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm with some 13 years’ experience of all manner of personal injury claims, including whiplash. Over the years, their specialists have helped thousands of genuine accident victims to win compensation claims. However, as a result of so many fraudulent whiplash claims, insurers will vigorously challenge any claim made for this type of injury.
The accident solicitor assigned to your case must use the information you provide to convince the other party to settle out of court. If that fails, your claim is dealt with by the courts, a costly undertaking both insurers and the government would like to see changed soon. This may result in people having to represent themselves at the small claims court instead of getting the best possible legal representation with a ‘no win, no fee’ solicitor.
Any genuine claimant should therefore not delay and ask Accident Advice Helpline for advice. Call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for no obligation advice about making a claim. Get the best representation for your claim and use national specialists Accident Advice Helpline not just any old accident solicitor in Huyton.
