How To Know If You Have A Claim For Compensation
17th January 2014
Generally, you can make a personal injury claim if you have been injured in an accident that was somewhat due to someone else’s negligence. This can be behind the wheel, in the workplace, while walking on the street, while shopping, while on holiday or in a huge range of other situations.
However, this maxim does not suit every single injury compensation claim, and the best way to determine whether or not you have a claim for compensation is to speak with a personal injury solicitor. Professional and trustworthy solicitors, such as the team at Clearwater Solicitors, will have Lexcel accreditation, which is only awarded to those legal practices that reach the highest standards of customer care and management.
Clearwater Solicitors offers a freephone telephone number at 08000 430 430, which you can use to discuss your case and arrange a no-obligation initial interview. We will use this interview to determine if you have a valid compensation claim. Don’t worry about wasting our time if you’re not certain whether or not you’ll have a claim – we’ll be more than happy to help you out!
The Law Society provides useful information about the process of making a personal injury claim, advising what solicitors may need to find out from you and what you should expect when claiming compensation. The Citizens Advice Bureau has also provided information about personal injuries and claiming compensation, and can offer any member of the public free advice and assistance about a whole range of different subjects.
Why should I use personal injury solicitors?
Claims management companies may offer to handle your claim on a no win no fee basis, but they will be ill-prepared to handle your claim and will likely give you a very shoddy standard of service. They do not have to have any legal qualifications and will not be able to represent you in court.
Personal injury solicitors operate under a strict code of practice and have insurance policies to protect their clients. They are well-placed to handle claims of any size and have a huge amount of legal knowledge in the specialist area of personal injury law.
You will want to entrust your compensation claim to a legal expert who is experienced in the areas of personal injury law your claim relates to – someone you can ask questions to, and can fully trust to handle your claim competently and professionally. We are proud to offer this at Clearwater Solicitors, providing honest and reliable legal services for anyone who has been injured and who wants to claim compensation.
