    Personal injury claims in Cannock Chase


    Personal injury claims in Cannock Chase can be made in a variety of ways, but you might find that the amount of compensation you eventually receive may vary considerably depending on the way you go about it. In this article we’ll look at some of your options when claiming.

    Insurance companies

    You may get the option of claiming through your insurance company. This seems like a good idea because it’s fast and simple, but if you’re not using someone who has the right training in personal injury law then you could be letting yourself in for all sorts of trouble. You might reduce your chances of winning and you will probably not receive the full amount of compensation you deserve.

    The other side’s insurance firm may also admit defeat before it even gets as far as the courts and offer you a settlement offer. This sounds easy because the money will be with you much more quickly than if you consult a law firm. However, this can be a false economy. It is in the interests of any law firm to under pay compensation amounts so this settlement offer is unlikely to be anything approaching the amount of compensation you could be entitled to if you decided to press ahead with a claim through a solicitor.

    Local law firms

    When making personal injury claims in Cannock Chase you might think that it’s a no brainer to choose a firm that is based in your local area, but this might not be the best idea. Local firms have contact with you and can give you a more personal service than a national law firm you might have seen advertised on the TV, but they will also be limited in terms of what they can work on and how many resources they can devote to a claim. If you find yourself embroiled in an ongoing legal battle you’ll be surprised at how quickly the costs can mount up.
