The difference between threats and promises with an injury solicitor in Connah’s Quay
When you are angry there is a chance that you may make threats. And if someone has caused you injury, whether intentionally or not, you are bound to be upset. But when you say things like “I am going to sue” in anger, then there is a big chance that this will simply be ignored, and we can easilly see why. But if you get an injury solicitor in Connah’s Quay, and they say it – well, it is no longer a threat, it is a promise.
If you don’t have an injury solicitor in Connah’s Quay and are making threats that you are going to sue, then you will probably be seen as all talk and no action. Unless you happen to be a lawyer, then this will probably be brushed off by anyone who hears it. We often see people making threats, bold claims of action that they are realistically unable to carry out – it is a pretty average thing to happen.
The thing is if you make these threats and you have a real grievance, then it can be quite frustrating to be brushed off in this way. You may ask why they are not taking you more seriously? Fair question. But then again, you should be asking why they should? Because you believe you have a case? What do you know?
Unless you are a lawyer, you don’t really know what you are talking about. You may well feel that fairness is on your side, and indeed you may be right; but there is a big difference between what is fair and what is illegal. And this is the difference between what you say and what a professional lawyer says.
Professional promise of action
So your threats are ignored as empty nothing, and we can see why. But how about if you go to an injury solicitor in Connah’s Quay and now a big company like Accident Advice Helpline, are the ones saying it. This is no longer an empty threat, it is a professional promise of action, and there are a few reasons why it is different.
First, it is being said by people who know what they are talking about. They probably agree that what has happened to you is unfair. But what they are really saying is that you have a case. Having a case means that they can show another’s responsibility, they can show that you were not at fault, and they can show loss and damage. Though this is inline with our feelings of fairness, the law is much more formal than that, and they will put it in terms that mean legal action is a real thing.
Second, it is also being said by someone who has a past record of making claims – in fact this is what they do. Brushing you off is okay, because who have you ever sued before? Now they are saying it, well, this is their job, and when they say they will make a claim and win, the other side better be listening.
