Here’s a hypothetical situation. You’ve been in an accident which you believe was not your fault and your insurance company calls you to tell you they can make a claim on your behalf – should you accept their offer? Of course not – they are one of several organisations which could affect your chances of securing full justice. In this article we’ll look at where you can find the best North Hertfordshire accident claim solicitors and how you can avoid making the wrong decision when choosing who will take the claim forward on your behalf.

So, let’s get back to that decision about the offer from the insurance company – why exactly should you turn them down? The advantages are considerable. On the one hand you should be able to claim compensation without the need to do much work. Nobody likes filtering through the available options until they find an appropriate option so they often go with the easiest option available to them.
But you have to focus on their motives for making this offer. They will probably work with another personal injury firm who pays them commission based on every piece of new business that can come their way. The insurance firm is not looking out for your interests – but they are instead looking to find ways in which they can make a little bit of money.
Claims management firms
Other offers you may receive often come from claims management firms. These are the kind of firms you see advertised on day time TV and who will call you up asking if you’ve been injured in an accident within the last three years.
These are not law firms, but are in effect data sellers. All they want is your contact details which they can then sell onto another law firm. You will not have as much control over who takes on your case which could also see you losing out on compensation.
Another area to watch out for is when you decide whether or not to accept an offer of a settlement. This may often come from the other side’s insurance firm and represents an acknowledgement on their part of the weakness of their case. However this will probably be substantially less than you would receive if you pressed on with the case through a qualified personal injury lawyer such as Accident Advice Helpline.
