What is Personal Injury?
If you suffer personal injury due to an accident then the individual or company, who negligently caused the injury, is legally liable and must pay financial compensation. Negligence occurs when an individual or company breaches a duty of care. If that individual or company is found to be ‘negligent’ they are legally liable to pay compensation to the person who has been injured.
Personal Injury can cover medical negligence, road traffic accidents, accidents at work, slips and trips, product defects and many other claims that are not your fault. We will ensure that if the injury was not your fault you will be able to take fast legal action to recover:
- Compensation for your injury
- Medical Treatments and Fees
- Loss of earnings or income
- Other Expenses
Personal Injury claims can often include many processes including:
- Gathering Evidence
- Tracing Witnesses
- Appointing Experts
- Liaising with the Police
- Negotiations with other Solicitors, Insurance Companies and Legal Representatives
Why Choose Us?
1. We handle the insurance company for you:-
Insurance companies are in the business of making money and insurance claims handlers are highly trained at negotiating settlements and will do everything they can to minimize what they pay, even to the point of denying a valid claim.
If you do not have experience negotiating with insurance companies, it can be difficult to ensure your best interests are being represented and that you receive the full value of your claim. Furthermore, an insurance claims handler may get you to inadvertently issue a statement or make a comment that could affect your ability to recover the compensation you deserve.
2. Prove liability for your injuries:-
Often one of the most complicated parts of a personal injury claim is proving that another’s negligence has caused your injuries. This is an important part of every accident claim, as individuals harmed by another’s actions do have the right to compensation.
3. Determine the true value of your injuries:-
Another complicated part of many accident claims is making sure you receive compensation that is representative of the true value of your claim and the damages you have suffered. Insurance companies are skilled at convincing injury victims to accept low settlement offers and will work to pay as little as possible for your claim.
4. Negotiate a fair settlement:-
Insurance claims handlers spend their days negotiating insurance settlements. They are skilled negotiators who vigorously fight for their best interests. So too are Knights Law Solicitors. We regularly negotiate with insurance companies and other solicitors. However, the significant difference is that we are solely focused on the best interests of our clients.
5. Explain the laws and regulations that apply to your claim:-
There are likely to be many laws and regulations that apply to your claim that only a solicitor will be able to identify and potentially use to your advantage. We will guide you through every step of the insurance claim and legal processes, making sure you understand the many laws and rules that apply to your case.
6. Issue Court Proceedings if necessary:-
A significant benefit to hiring a Knights Law solicitor to handle your claim, is that we can advise you of all of your legal options. If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a reasonable settlement amount, we are often prepared to issue Court Proceedings to help you get the compensation you deserve.
This step is often the action that pushes the insurance company to offer a fair settlement, even before the case goes to court. However, we are always prepared to take a case to court if it is in the best interest of our clients.
