Kenilworth in Warwickshire is the location of one of Britain’s most iconic and historic castles, Kenilworth Castle. It’s worth a visit. But be careful! Don’t fall while climbing the stairs or scrambling around the ruins. If you have an accident because the structure is unsafe, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. If you decide to make any type of claim for injuries, you may think that you need expert injury lawyers in Kenilworth to help you. However you don’t really need local lawyers, you can simply contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
‘Third Party Capture’
‘Third party capture’ is ‘legalese’ for an action by which the defendant’s insurance company will phone up the victim (that’s you, by the way, if you are on here looking for expert injury lawyers in Kenilworth) and offer to settle outside court. It sounds simple and convenient, doesn’t it, saving the trouble of all that tiresome personal injury claim hassle?
Don’t get short-changed
The term ‘third party capture‘ applies particularly to road traffic accidents (RTAs). If you have been injured in an RTA and your claim against the third party for compensation is valid, you are entitled to apply for the fair amount of lump sum compensation, as determined by the norms paid out for the injuries you have sustained. Furthermore, the courts may take into account other factors including the pain and inconvenience, extra costs you have endured, loss of income and so forth.
Some solicitors believe that third party capture employed by liability insurers to offer a direct discounted settlement which has not been independently adjudged, denies proper justice to victims. The Motor Accidents Solicitors Society (MASS) has long campaigned for greater rights for third party victims of RTAs, who, holding a ‘third party’ status, are not always accorded equal treatment with the insuring companies’ customers. MASS would like to see this issue properly investigated by the MoJ and the FCA, under whose regulatory framework this matter falls. In the meantime, if you are one such RTA victim, make sure to seek proper legal advice from your own solicitor, who will use his or her expertise to fight your corner and do his or her best to ensure you are adequately compensated for the situation in which you find yourself.
