Claimants sometimes ask us if they really need to use a specialist solicitor when making a compensation claim for a whiplash injury in Brackley. We always tell them that no you do not have to use one, but if you want your whiplash injury in Brackley to be simple, quick and efficient and have its best chance of success, then a specialist solicitor is the best option.
Of course it is no good if they specialise in divorce, debt recovery, or maybe business law, it is a solicitor that specialises in personal injury compensation claims you need and then many of the things associated with claims will not be a problem.
Dealing with an insurance company when you make your whiplash injury in Brackley claim
Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with. Their paperwork tends to be complicated and they ask awkward questions that could be answered in 10 different ways. Once you have given your answer, even if you have misunderstood the question and the answer is wrong, it is set in stone and almost impossible to convince them it was a mistake.
Without a solicitor that understands personal injury claims, dealing with them could be a nightmare, but at Accident Advice Helpline we deal with them all the time. As a law firm that specialises in personal injury claims, our solicitors know how to present your claim to the insurers, and will have their awkward questions answered before they have been asked.
The languages of our solicitors
It is almost like our solicitors are bilingual, listening to them certainly sounds like two languages. There is plain English for when they speak to claimants so that everything is easily understood, and legal jargon, which is reserved for when they are dealing with the opposing legal teams.
Making sure your claim includes everything
Our solicitors will examine every aspect and you claim to ensure that everything is claimed for, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- The impact on your life
- Loss of earnings
- Travel costs
- Extra medical expenses
- Any other costs or losses that arise because of the accident
Even the small expenses can mount up to a lot of money, and they can all be recouped if you have proof of them. Make sure to get receipts for everything you have to pay, and keep wage slips to prove your reduced income if you are employed. If you do not have them, your employer will be asked to confirm you loss of earnings, or your accountant if you are self employed.
Contacting our solicitors

They will discuss your situation with you, and if you wish to proceed with a claim will pair you with the most suitable of our specialist solicitors for your circumstances.
