Why choose Macks Solicitors for your work injury claim?July 22, 2011
After an injury at work, making a claim for compensation is unlikely to be one of the first things you think of. There’s the pain of the injury, the worry of missing work and the stress to both you and your family. However, the financial implications of an injury can be a major source of worry and a compensation payment can pay for lost wages in minor cases plus money for home adaptations and care in more serious cases.
Choosing the wrong solicitor to manage your claim can mean that you end up with a smaller compensation payment than your claim deserves. An experienced, knowledgeable and professional solicitor will make all the difference to the payment that you receive and to your peace of mind during the claims process.
You may be approached by an insurance company with an offer of money. However, the amount is unlikely to be of a similar level to that which would be suggested by the Judicial Studies Board. The insurance company will most probably fail to take into account the different factors that an experienced solicitor would. This guidelines early offer will have been made with the aim of minimising the payment, not serving the best interests of the claimant. It is better to get legal advice before making any decisions so that you know your options.
Using a Claims management company instead of a solicitor can also be risky. They cannot take the claim to court so will either push for an out-of-court settlement or pass the case to a solicitor who may have paid them for the referral. This means that the solicitor who manages your case in court has not been selected for their expertise or experience. In both scenarios, the result may be a lower payment than you could receive with an expert solicitor.
