Settling a Claim Early
Insurance companies are very experienced at knowing the value of claims. They can often make an offer soon after an injury has occurred in an attempt to save themselves money down the line as they know the offer is less than what the claim is worth. These offers often take advantage of injured people who do not have legal representation and do not understand how the claim process works in the hope they may be under financial stress and willing to accept an offer that is below the fair value of their claim.
One of the common problems with accepting an early offer is that you will not know how long your injuries will last and how severe they are. A specialist personal injurysolicitor would be able to advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of accepting any offer in light of what a fair entitlement to compensation is in your particular case. Remember that insurance companies have no duty to make a fair offer, they have a motive to make a profit by paying out less in claims. A specialist personal injurysolicitor will have a duty to act in your best interests.
Our solicitors continue to work our usual business hours remotely. You can call or email us as usual.
We aim to make meetings as safe and convenient as possible for you. We understand that you have better things to do with your time than spend it going to or from a solicitor’s offices. We want to reduce the hassle people face when going to appointments, such as taking time off work or organising childminders. Therefore, we offer calls and video calls to save you this time. Where a physical meeting is necessary or preferred, we will arrange the meeting at one of our offices which is most convenient to you. If you prefer us to call to your home to make things even more convenient for you this is also possible.
