You may feel intimidated to approach an insurance company and maybe you are avoiding claiming for whiplash injuries you received from an accident due to this anxiety. If you have been in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you need to claim with the other driver’s insurance company. Claiming doesn’t have to be scary. You just have to know how to do it right. Getting the right Solicitor will make all the difference.
First of all, do not make the mistake of contacting the insurance company yourself. They will take advantage of your lack of skill, and try to intimidate you. The other driver’s insurance company may try to get you to see their own Doctor. You have every right to use your own Doctor to get a diagnosis.
The insurance company may also try to bully you into using a Solicitor of their choosing. Sometimes they may come off as trying to be helpful in getting you the representation you need but in reality, they are not being helpful at all – the Solicitor they choose to help on your behalf will have a conflict of interest because they were referred by the insurance company.
Another possibility that an insurance company might try to convince you to use a claims management company to assist you in claiming for whiplash. Claims management companies may seem a lot like Solicitors initially. However, in reality, they are much different. A claims management company will not spend the time when assisting you to make sure they have all of the vital information. They simply fill out the forms and take what you give them. That means if you forget to mention a certain bill, it won’t get paid. Some claim management companies sell your case to a Solicitor, and you might expect them to be professional at getting the settlement you deserve, but there is no way for you to know if they are good enough as you have not chosen them yourself.
