Making a claim for an accident or injury?
Pearson Solicitors is supporting the Law Society's "Don’t get mugged by an insurer" campaign which encourages accident injury victims to use a solicitor rather than settle for the first compensation payment they are offered.
Don’t just accept the first payment you’re offered.
The insurance company may make you an offer of compensation if you’ve had an accident or injury. But the law Society says think twice before you say ‘yes’ to the first compensation payment you’re offered.
You might get a much better deal if you take advice from a solicitor.
On average, people get two – three times more if they consult a solicitor, according to the Financial Services Authority.
Three million people are injured in accidents each year
And if someone or something else is at fault, you have a right to compensation. The law is complicated, but a solicitor can help you make a claim and make sure you get what you should.
The message is: ‘don’t settle for less, use a solicitor’.Subscribe to our newsletter
