Car accidents and no-win, no-fee Cookham Dean solicitors
Some people don’t even ponder as to whether they might be entitled to some form of compensation after being involved in a road accident that was not their fault. As long as they get the negligent party’s insurer to cover any damage that was done to their vehicle, most road accident victims are happy. This is why personal injury firms used to use solicitor referrals.
If you were to successfully use a good 100% no-win, no-fee in Cookham Dean solicitor to take action against a negligent or irresponsible driver after being involved in a road traffic accident that was not in any way your fault, his or her insurer would typically have to pay any compensation you were awarded, assuming the negligent party had not contravened any of his or her cover provider’s exclusions.
This means that you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting what’s owed to you.
It also means that there will be a chance that the negligent party’s insurer might try to contact you with a settlement offer before your case even reached court. If this were top happen, think very carefully before accepting. Some insurers come in with offers way below what you might win in court.
Talk closely with your 100% no-win, no-fee in Cookham Dean solicitor before you entertain any such offer. While a lump sum without having to go to court might seem very attractive, it will probably seem less so if you wind up finding out the amount you settle for was only a small portion of what you might have wound up with if you had pressed on.
