Personal Injury Solicitor Brighton – Expert Advice
By using a specialist personal injury solicitor, it means you have someone on your side who knows how insurance companies will try to reduce the amount of compensation you deserve. Sometimes they will even dismiss the case entirely.
That’s why we recommend you always use our personal injury solicitors as we have the knowledge and experience to get you the best outcome so you can move on with life.
We offer a prompt and reputable service, with a team of plain-talking, easy to understand lawyers who are committed to helping workers and residents in the Brighton area.
It’s not that we don’t like insurance companies, it’s a fact of life that we have to deal with them on behalf of our clients. However, some of them do have a track record of making personal injury compensation claims as difficult as possible.
In 2013 the UK Law Society started up a nationwide campaign called “Don’t Get Mugged By An Insurer”. We fully support this initiative and back the Law Society’s aims where they expressly recommend UK residents should use a solicitor or lawyer for legal advice on accident claims.
Once we have established that a third party was to blame for the accident, and we agree to work together, our solicitors will send a claim letter to the person or company responsible for the injury. We will also contact and specialist such as medical professionals if we feel an expert opinion will help to support the case.
The defendant then has three months within which to reply, and in most cases this will happen much quicker. In their reply back to us they will state whether or not they accept liability for the accident. If they do then our lawyers will seek to settle the case outside of court.
Settlements like this are the most common, and very few of our clients will ever need to attend court. Settlements will be managed by the guilty party’s own solicitor and insurance company.
Making an Offer
Our personal injury solicitors will tell you what we think the compensation amount and offer should be. If the third party accepts our offer and agrees on the payment amount then the wheels will be set in motion to have the case closed and paid up.
In rare cases where the two parties cannot agree then our lawyers will advise you on whether we believe a legal case should be brought, which could involve court proceedings. As we said though, this is very rare.
Taking Action Against an Employer
One of the more common accident claims that our team deal with are work accident claims. Understandably many people are concerned about bring a personal injury claim against a company that they currently work for.
We understand these concerns. It’s only natural for you to worry about this type of scenario. However, the law is on your side, and is specifically designed for instances such as this.
All employers and companies are required to have insurance policies designed to protect them financially from accidents at work. What this means is that it’s not your employer who will have to pay accident and injury compensation, but instead their insurance company.
Not only that, but UK legislation has strict statutes in place that mean businesses cannot discriminate against an employer or worker who has made a claim.
