Cheshire, United Kingdom, (27th January 2012) – Fosters Solicitors, a leading no win no fee personal injury solicitor, comment on a recent study which shows that a growing number of insurers are contacting people directly in an attempt to get them to settle an injury compensation claim as soon as possible.
Fosters Solicitors reports that many insurance companies contact their customers with tempting financial offers to settle an injury compensation claim just hours after an accident has taken place.
Although the promise of a quick settlement may initially appeal to the claimant, it also means that the opportunity to seek proper legal advice is lost, which can have more serious repercussions in the future.
One of Fosters Solicitors’ clients was recently offered a payment by her insurance company shortly after being involved in an accident. She was tempted to accept their offer of £1000, but decided to seek legal advice from a qualified personal injury solicitor at Fosters.
By contacting Fosters, the extent of our client’s injury was properly assessed; she was seen by a doctor and the correct diagnosis and treatment was given, including physiotherapy that was deemed necessary by the doctor as a consequence of her road traffic accident. Through Fosters, the client has now been offered £3,400.
Fosters Solicitors commented: “Although it may appeal to settle an injury compensation claim early on through your insurance company, you should always seek the advice of an independent, specialist personal injury lawyer. You are entitled to seek your own legal advice and you do not have to accept the insurer’s offer. Once you have accepted a payment from your insurer, you may not be able to make another claim later. Any further health issues you experience as a result of your accident would not be acknowledged. This means that you could miss out on vital compensation that covers future medical care, rehabilitation and loss of earnings.”
