    Claiming after a car crash in Northampton

    If you are considering claiming after a car crash in Northampton then you are likely to want to speak to a professional about the information that you need to gather, the evidence you need to provide and the eligibility you have for claiming.  On the face of it many people think that they can make a claim for compensation without enlisting the help of a law firm.

    Of course, it is their right to try and do this and they don’t need to have legal representation but there are many advantages of ensuring you have someone in your corner to help you fight for your justice.

    Benefits of having a personal injury lawyer on your side

    In the first instance having a lawyer on your side will ensure that your claim is not ignored right from the beginning.  If you contact the party that you believe are responsible for your accident directly they are likely to ignore you.  However, if your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor sends them a letter they are likely to regard your claim as being more legitimate.  In turn they are also more likely to seek their own representative to support them in their claim.

    The amount of paperwork that is likely to be generated as a result of your claim will be hefty.  You will have to provide information to the other side about the accident, why you think they are responsible, the injuries you have sustained and how these have affected you.  You will also have to argue your point every step of the way as they will do all they can to ensure that you get put off and ultimately cancel the claim.

    This will not happen if you have a solicitor on your side. They will be able to deal with all paperwork quickly and efficiently, and will be able to effectively argue your point using the law.  Equally your solicitor will have the time to do this as this is their job, not something they are trying to fit around the rest of their daily chores and activities.
