Injury claim solicitors in Selby


If you’re looking for injury claim solicitors in Selby it’s important to choose the right people to work with. Here’s our guide to some of the things which could harm your prospects of justice.

Settling too early

If you have been in an accident, you may receive a settlement offer early in proceedings. This will come if the other side’s legal team think they have little or no chance of winning a case. It is therefore in their interests to stop proceedings as soon as possible. This will save ongoing legal fees and court fees incurred if the case goes that far.

It is understandably tempting to take this as it means you’ll have the money almost straight away, but this can be the wrong decision. It is in their interests to pay out as little as possible. In that way they can improve their own cash-flow and ensure you do not cost them more money than necessary. It’s important to get advice from a lawyer to ensure you don’t settle for less.

Missing injuries

Another common mistake is that people can under-claim for compensation because they mistakenly believe injuries don’t count. An initial medical inspection can miss things and complications can occur with your condition. People often forget to mention things such as psychological problems. Something as simple as sleeplessness can be a sign that something is wrong.

We sometimes suggest a follow-up medical assessment so we can ensure everything is picked up. You should tell us about all the issues you’re experiencing even if you’re not certain that it counts. We can always ignore things which aren’t relevant, but if you don’t tell us about something it will not be included as a part of your compensation settlement.

Choosing the wrong lawyer

Many people don’t realise it, but personal injury law is a highly specialised area of the legal profession. Different lawyers tend to specialise in different aspects of the law. You will need to understand more about what areas your lawyer works on, so you’ll be in a better position to make an informed decision about your case.

If you have an expert in the type of accident you’ve suffered they will provide more valuable help and support at every stage of the process and will also be more likely to help you towards a successful conclusion to your case.

At Accident Advice Helpline we always hand pick the lawyers we provide you with to make certain they are in a position to secure the maximum amount of compensation to which you should be entitled.
