The decision to claim compensation is a big step; you are brining legal action against a company or individual who you think is responsible for your being injured. You need to be confident in the knowledge that the law firm you have engaged to act on your behalf knows what they are doing, are specialists within personal injury claims and know how to build a winning case.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we know that with our lawyer we fulfil this criteria!
We are specialist personal injury lawyers!
If you needed you house rewiring, who would you call – a plumber or an electrician? If you were buying a house, who would your opt for – a solicitor with experience and expertise in conveyancing, or a specialist family lawyer?
Within a profession, such as law, there are many different strands and just like other industries, there are people who specialise in certain key aspects. Making a compensation claim is to take a trip into the legal world of personal injury claims.
To make a successful claim, there are key criteria that need to be met but even when these boxes are ticked, unless the defendant – the person or company you are claiming against – admit liability, then you may find your lawyer will need to work very hard on your behalf.
This could mean a day in court, convincing a judge that you have not only a legitimate, genuine claim but are also entitled to compensation; this involves showing evidence that the defendant is liable for your injuries.
You may not need to attend court but you do need to have the confidence in the ability and expertise of your lawyer that they will do their utmost to get you the right outcome – compensation!
Building a successful case
The more detail there is in a personal injury claim, the more likely it will be to succeed. For this reason, you need to help your lawyer by giving them as much detail as possible, from the time of day to who else was there.
As soon as they receive an offer of settlement – in other words, they make you a compensation offer – your lawyer will be in touch to discuss the pros and cons of accepting. Occasionally, we advise claimants to press for more as some companies, to avoid the negative publicity and expense, make derisory offers, hoping ‘the problem’ goes away.
