If you have been involved in an accident and sustained a personal injury through someone else’s negligence or simply through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. The vast majority of personal injury solicitors specialise in recovering compensation for victims of road traffic accidents, accidents at work, and public place accidents for instance a slip, trip or fall. It is to your benefit to have a personal injury solicitor handle your case rather than trying to pursue a claim by yourself. If you attempt to make your own claim, it unlikely that you will not include the losses your are entitled to be compensated for. Here are five benefits to having a personal injury solicitor represent your case:My explanation no win no fee attorney.
‘No Win, No Fee’ Solicitors
Aside from the obvious benefit of not having to pay for your solicitor’s services whether you win or lose – the biggest benefit of having a personal injury solicitor representing your case is that you will receive 100% of the personal injury compensation that you are entitled too by law. There are no legal fees or hidden costs involved, no win no fee solicitors are only paid on the basis that they win the personal injury case they working on. Being specialist in personal injury, your claim is more likely to be successful than any other alternative. In turn, the compensation that they recover for you can be put into the good use of what it is intended for; compensating your for the personal injury you have suffered and helping you rebuild your life. More Likely to Recover The Maximum Compensation You Are Entitled too Rather Than Dealing With Your Insurance Company Direct.
A recent case at PHC Law from PHC Law highlights why:
A client approached PHC Law having suffered various injuries having been involved in a car accident. His insurance company contacted him immediately, offering him the sum of £1,000.00 in settlement of his claim for personal injury. Reluctant to deal with the defendant’s insurance company direct who also contacted him, he instead approached PHC Law. After obtaining detailed instructions from the client concerning his injuries, supported by a medical report, PHC recovered damages of £2,500.00 compensation on his behalf – an increase of 150% compared to what his insurance company offered him.
A Personal Injury Solicitor Will Be Able To Obtain More Compensation For Your Injuries
Experienced solicitors have experience in evaluating the compensation that the client is entitled too by law and can also explore the contributing factors that could increase the compensation amount to which you are entitled. Any financial loss or ‘out of pocket’ expenses that you have suffered as a result of your injury that can also be compensated for. An insurance company for instance who may have agreed to pay you compensation is not under any duty to advise you about these losses. Your Solicitor Will Ensure Justice Is Served And Where Necessary, Will Take Proceedings To Court. It is not often claims for compensation result in having to go to court, however, if the facts of an accident are being disputed by the other party or their insurer and are reluctant to make an offer to settle, it is likely your solicitor will need to start your claim at court to force settlement.
More Likely To Increase The Value Of A Case.
Personal injury is a complex, specialised area of law and it is essential that people receive qualified, specialist advice about their claims. Your solicitor will also know what evidence is necessary to prove your claim and will also increase the amount of compensation the client is entitled too. They will also consider the long-term effects of the injuries sustained and any consider any financial loss, ongoing medical expenses, treatment or care that the client may need to be compensated for in addition to the injuries and symptoms they have sustained. Personal injury solicitors are professional and respectable law professional regulated to the most stringent of standards which means your claim is more likely to be successful than dealing with your insurance company direct.
