A personal injury solicitor is a lawyer who provides legal services to you if you have claimed to be injured physically or psychologically because of other people or a company’s negligence. With a solicitor’s help, you will receive the compensation you deserve for the damage.
What do they do?
A Personal Injury Solicitor will represent you throughout the legal processes. With them, you will increase your chances of getting full compensation instead of settling for less. A Personal Injury Solicitor will collect all the evidence at the scene of the accident to do this. You need to submit all your pieces of evidence like
- Any photographs at the scene of the accident.
- Statements from the witnesses.
- Video evidence may include traffic cameras and security recordings.
- Your medical examination reports, along with the report from the doctor who examined you.
Sometimes, you might not know what to expect as compensation for your injuries. Traditional compensations usually offer medical expenses, loss of time, pain, and an additional amount if your injury caused you loss of ability to earn also known as loss of earnings.
However, the total amount depends on factors like the level of injury, your insurance policy, and the impact of the injuries on your life. With a professional injury lawyer, you will know when to accept an offer and keep pushing.
Can you handle your injury claim on your own?
Many people assume that hiring personal injury solicitors in Croydon only adds to the legal expenses, and you can just do fine without one. But without a lawyer, there are few chances for you to receive timely and full compensation or to understand the process that you will need to follow. You can easily get frustrated and decide to settle your claim for less than what it is actually worth or you can decide to actually not pursue any compensation.
Many companies fail to offer the appropriate level of compensation and make you settle for less. The loss adjuster might offer a low initial settlement in the early days when you do not know how much your medical expenses will cost in the following days. The company may try to bring down the money even further if you do not understand the estimated amount you deserve.
Experienced personal injury solicitors in Croydon have seen many such cases in their career and will give you an appropriate estimate of the value of your claim for your injuries after you have been medically examined and have obtained a medical report. They will also help you claim the amount for physical therapy that you might need after your accident and in the future.
