When you make a personal injury claim there are a number of different people you may meet. Some will be able to work with your best interests in mind while others will seek to profit from your misery. If you’ve been hurt in St Edmundsbury no win no fee personal injury claims appear to offer a simple and risk free way to make a claim, but it’s important to watch your step.
St Edmundsbury no win no fee claims
The first bunch of people you should avoid are the so called ambulance chasers. These people will attempt to persuade you to make a claim when you are at your most vulnerable. The chances are you’ll be paying over the odds and they won’t do a very good job in the first place.
Recently there has been some good news in the banning of referral fees which was bad news for claims management firms who did not make the personal injury claims, but sold your contact details onto others. This makes it much harder for them to operate.
There is a sentiment that you should always trust an insurance salesman about as far as you can comfortably spit out a rat and this is often true. You may be contacted by the other side’s lawyers who say they are willing to make an offer of compensation. This seems like unusually good form on their part as we do not live in a world in which many people are prepared to own up to their mistakes, but in reality they are attempting to minimise the damage. Their strategy is to make a small offer now in the hope that it will stop you from claiming more later.
Even your own insurance firm may not be on your side. They may say they can help you to make a claim and even recommend a lawyer who can do the job. But they receive commission for each of these lawyers that they send your way so it can be a bad idea to recruit them.
Getting the right lawyers
You’ll also need to make sure that the lawyer you receive is not only highly qualified but has experience in your type of personal injury claim. This means that they will not only be able to give you better advice but will also offer a better chance of winning at the end of it all.
