People who experience a car or other vehicle collision accident are often reluctant to make a claim. They are afraid of dealing with insurance companies and afraid they will be belittled for their pains.
Both fears are reasonable when attempting to deal with insurance companies on your own. You need an experienced solicitor who can manage your claim successfully. That takes all of the stress out of an already stressful situation.
Who are You Hiring?
Make sure you are actually hiring a solicitor when you choose a company to represent your case. There are claim management companies that sound like they can handle your claim, but they aren’t solicitors, and they won’t deal with the insurance companies directly.
A claims management company will simply act as a middleman to get you a solicitor. At first glance, that may seem like a less stressful way to get someone to represent you in your case. However, there are a lot of drawbacks to using a claim management company.
When you hire a claims management company, they choose your solicitor for you. Their methods of choice do not reflect your best interest, but rather who will pay them the most for the whiplash injury claims case.
Looking for your own solicitor may seem troublesome, but you need to get an experienced solicitor who knows the best way to treat a settlement. They can get you the compensation you deserve.
Something else to consider whey dealing with claims management companies: they will be getting paid up front for your case regardless of whether you get a settlement at all. That means they don’t really care if the solicitor they choose can deliver a case.
Getting your own solicitor will involve meeting with them to find out if you have a good case, and finding out what they have done in the past to get good settlements, and not paying unless they can win a whiplash settlement on your behalf. No one should benefit from your case besides you, and definitely no one should benefit from your settlement if you do not get anything at all.
