One of the biggest fears people have about making personal injury claims is the fear that they will have to go to court. However, the truth is that the majority of cases don’t get that far. If the other side think they are not going to win they will probably try to settle before it gets that far. So the question if you’re looking for Test Valley ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers is whether or not you need a lawyer at all.
Test Valley ‘no win, no fee*’ claims
When you make a personal injury claim you will in most cases be claiming not against an individual but against an insurance company who have agreed to take on the risk that their client will prove to be negligent. If this has happened then that’s a decision they will probably be regretting right now, so their aim is to reduce the amount they pay. As such you may occasionally receive a settlement offer from the insurance company. This seems to be a great development because it means you don’t have to go to the trouble of going to court in order to claim the compensation and there are no legal costs to pay. Moreover, you don’t need to wait – the money can arrive pretty quickly.
So do you need a lawyer?
Well considering this is a blog on the website of one of the UK’s leading personal injury law firms you’d be surprised if we said anything other than that you should still consult a lawyer. However, it’s more than just our own vested interests driving this answer. The truth is that many people end up being under compensated because they are too quick to jump on an offer from an insurer. These companies have only one interest – to reduce the amount they end up paying in terms of compensation. This means their settlement offer will probably be a long way short of the amount you would have been paid if your claim had been successful. In other words, they will set out to try and swindle you out of compensation to which you are entitled.
The only way to stop this is to consult a law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline. We’ve set up a free 24 hour helpline especially for this purpose which you can call at any time of the day or night.
