    New Forest Accident Claim Solicitors

    In the aftermath of an accident, the majority of people are aware that they have the right to claim compensation.

    However, for a variety of reasons including keeping costs down and not trusting legal professionals, many choose to make their claim personally rather than trusting New Forest accident claim solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline.

    This could be a huge mistake on their part for a variety of reasons:

    1. Knowledge

    Most people’s legal knowledge comes from brief reading or research but this can be enough to convince them that they should and can make their claim personally. However, solicitors such as New Forest accident claim solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline have much more to offer. They will instantly know by way of a 30 second test whether the claim is valid and worth pursuing. They will know about the variety of losses and the various measures of help it is possible to claim for. For example, few people will be aware that in the case of serious injuries, it is possible to make a claim for home help whether this is domestic or medical, even if these are being undertaken by a friend or partner.

    1. Increasing the Amount

    Through their specialist knowledge New Forest accident claim solicitors have the ability to make a larger claim than a private individual might have done. This is because they are aware of the various precedents which have been set in the past, they know what certain claims are worth and they can use the right language and arguments when making your claim to push for these larger payments.

    1. Presenting the Evidence

    As part of their legal training, New Forest accident claim solicitors receive guidance in the correct way to present evidence. This is done sympathetically but for maximum effect in order to persuade the person governing your case that they should decide in your favour. However, without that experience and training, your evidence might not have the same impact leading to a less favourable outcome.

    1. Fuss Free

    In the aftermath of an accident, especially when it is not your fault, most people tend to feel tired, shell-shocked and overwhelmed. Few accidents which leave a physical after effect fail to leave some kind of psychological after effect too and as a result, the injured party may not be “themselves”. This could have a grave effect on their claim if they’re pursuing it personally.

    One of the largest advantages of using a professional New Forest accident claim solicitors firm such as Accident Advice Helpline is having the ability to simply leave it to the professionals. This means no hassle, no paperwork and no having to stand either in court or in mediation making lengthy speeches and arguments as to why you should be awarded compensation. Once you’ve employed legal representation, you can allow the professionals to do the leg work for you, as you concentrate on recuperating from your injuries.
