Why should I choose a Specialist Accident Claims Lawyer to represent me?
Personal Injury is a complex area of law so it is important that you use a Specialist Lawyer to ensure that your accident compensation claim is properly handled. You might be approached by unqualified non-specialists, sometimes in the street, who may only be interested in obtaining a percentage of your damages or in selling your claim on for a fee. They may not be interested in providing you with the best or most appropriate legal assistance for your particular needs.
These companies may be limited companies who are here one day and gone the next. They may not be regulated and may just act as middlemen, passing on your case for someone else to handle who will pay the highest price for your case.
Grieves Solicitors is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
At Grieves Solicitors, we do not take a percentage of your compensation and we are one of the few firms who specialise exclusively in obtaining compensation for accident victims. Our dedicated team of professionals has many years of experience of pursuing a wide range of personal injury claims for both physical and psychological trauma.
We occupy ground floor offices in the centre of Huddersfield within easy reach of both Huddersfield bus and train stations. There is also ample parking nearby. Evening and weekend appointments are available and we can see you at home or in hospital if you prefer.
Sometimes, the insurance company for the person responsible for your accident will contact you and try to buy you off from making a claim. Lawyers call this Third Party Capture. What happens is that your opponent's insurance company will make you a tempting offer if compensation which is often several thousand pounds less than you deserve to try and save their clients money.
If you have legal expense insurance, sometimes your own insurance company will say that you have to use the solicitors they recommend rather than a solicitor of your own choice. This is simply not true as you have freedom of choice to instruct your own solicitor. Your insurer's solicitors are usually members of your insurer's panel and will pay a fee for your claim. This will either be passed on to you or it will come off the profit that the firm is making on your case, thus meaning that only junior members of staff handle your claim.
At Grieves Solicitors, we have a dedicated team of personal injury lawyers who will do their best to obtain the compensation you deserve. If you need any advice on how to go about making a claim call us FREE on 0800 074 7644 or complete an online claim form.
