Not relishing a day in court and being made to suffer all over again?
Every year, Accident Advice Helpline deal with around 300,000 enquiries concerning personal injury claims. The personal injury claim in Knottingley team of legal experts are one of many such teams around the UK that belong to Accident Advice Helpline’s network.
At present, most cases can be dealt with over the telephone, providing that the claimant has all the relevant details on hand and can forward all important documents, such as receipts and invoices pertaining to expenses such as trips to doctors and hospitals, cost of private medical care and names and addresses of everyone involved in the case, be it as a witness to the accident or as the party who is to blame for the personal injury.
Up to now, most claimants did not have to go to court when their personal injury case was being dealt with. However, the present government is trying to crack down on fraudulent claims such as alleged neck injuries caused by whiplash, which are typically the result of road traffic accidents. Unfortunately, this global sweep would force genuine victims of accidents to pursue their case at a small claims court without the representation of a solicitor. Victims would have to argue their case against the expert knowledge of an insurance lawyer.
Calling a personal injury claim in Knottingley advisor
According to data collected by the Financial Conduct Authority, claimants of personal injury cases who dealt with insurers on their own without the help of an expert legal advisor have received on average just 50% of the compensation they were entitled to. The government’s current proposal is therefore apt to penalise victims and help insurance companies to save money, rather than helping people who have suffered personal injuries as a result of somebody else’s fault.

Esther Rantzen, who is Accident Advice Helpline’s patron, will undoubtedly champion the cause of personal injury victims and consumers if the government presses ahead with the proposal, which is not suited to weed out fraudulent claims but leaves the door wide open to less than scrupulous claims management companies and insurers unwilling to pay out fair compensation amounts to personal injury victims.
