    Accident at work in Daventry

    In the aftermath of an accident at work in Daventry, it is all too easy to get caught up in the moment and inadvertently say something that you later regret. That is why one of the first things to remember following any type of accident is that you should never speak to anyone, especially your employer’s insurer, without first consulting with a solicitor.

    Why you need a solicitor after an accident at work in Daventry

    When faced with your injury claim, your employer’s insurer may use many tactics to delay, deny or minimise the amount of compensation payable to you. Their representatives might ask you questions that are designed to coerce you into admitting fault and if you are not careful, you may unwittingly say something that your employer’s insurer could use against you in justifying a lower settlement.

    Your employer’s insurer might also try to offer you a settlement that is much lower than the compensation to which you are actually entitled. They bet on the fact that, without a solicitor, you will be unaware of the true value of your claim. If you have already received a settlement offer, and you feel that it might not meet your long-term needs, a solicitor will be able to use their knowledge and experience to review your claim and help you to determine whether you should push for a higher offer. Should you decide to refuse the offer, a solicitor will negotiate with your insurer to ensure that you receive the settlement you deserve.

    Hiring a solicitor from the start of your claim sends a clear message to your employer’s insurer that you are unwilling to accept anything other than full and fair compensation for your accident at work in Daventry. In fact, it has been proven that insurance companies offer higher settlements to those with legal representation than to those without. That is because they realise that solicitors are aware of the intricacies of the legal system and will work to gather all the necessary documents to support your claim.

    At the Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors handle all types of personal injury claims and they can advise you on avoiding the traps set by insurance companies. To make a free, no-obligation enquiry about hiring our help, please call our Freephone helpline or use our 30-second test.
