If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault, you may need to seek help making a claim. This isn’t as scary as it may seem if you do it right. Making a whiplash claim on your own is difficult. There is a lot of paperwork, and you need to know the proper documentation to get the most from your settlement.
You can hire a claim management company to do the paperwork for you. However, that is not the best approach. There are several drawbacks to using claim managers to assist you in your case. The first drawback is that they really only do the paperwork, and since they have very little interest in getting a good settlement, they may not get everything correct and get you the settlement you deserve.
A claim management company’s focus is on filling out the standard forms, and selling your case to a solicitor who will go to the insurance company. Well, you may say that doesn’t sound too bad. Eventually a solicitor will be handling your whiplash compensation claims. The problem is that such a solicitor has paid to represent you, and you really do not know how qualified they are to get you the best settlement.
Hire Your Own Solicitor
Hiring your own solicitor for your whiplash compensation claims is easy. You can learn a lot from an initial meeting regarding your potential case. You’ll find out how successful past cases have been for that particular solicitor. Make sure you ask how many years they have been practicing and dealing specifically with whiplash compensation claims. You want a solicitor with appropriate experience and a history of successful whiplash accident claims.
If you instruct us, we will provide you with over 10 years experience in dealing with successful whiplash claims, along with an impressive £10,000,000 in settlements for our clients.
When you visit your chosen Solicitor make sure you ask what they can do to make your case continue smoothly. We provide eligible clients with a courtesy car to help them get on with their lives while their claim is being handled. We take you through the entire whiplash compensation claims procedure so you understand what is needed, why it takes the time it does, and what you can expect as a settlement.
Whiplash Compensation Settlements
The amount of compensation received from a claim varies from case to case. Your Solicitor will be able to provide a very reasonable estimate from your information. He or she will ask you about the accident that lead to your case, and also what Doctors you have seen, any costs incurred and what your regular expenses are. They will want to know if you have missed work, and what your wages are in the event you lost income.
