Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claim Solicitors
Do I have to use the solicitor appointed by my car insurance company after a road traffic accident in the UK?
Not at all. It is your right to choose the solicitor that you want to work on your car accident claim. Your insurance company will probably try to direct you to one of the road traffic accident compensation claims solicitors that they have chosen to work with on UK cases; these are known as appointed or panel solicitors. You, however, are not obliged to use the solicitors chosen by your insurance company and you have the right to select your own legal representative.
There is nothing to stop you from choosing from any of the thousands of “no win no fee” road traffic accident compensation claims solicitors in the UK. Just make sure you choose a reputable and professional law firm when shopping around for representation. Do some research on the solicitor that you would prefer to instruct and investigate the reputation of the law firm carefully?
Action to be Taken Before Starting a Road Traffic Accident Compensation Claim
You need to make sure that the legal firm you choose has experienced lawyers who will be able to bring your claim to a favourable conclusion and ensure you receive the right level of compensation. Before appointing a representative not recommended by your insurer, discuss the most appropriate method of funding and make sure there are no hidden costs.
