Imagine this, unfortunately familiar, scenario. You have just been involved in a road accident and suddenly you get bombarded with telephone calls from Claims Management Companies and Solicitors all over the country offering to act for you to pursue a claim for injury compensation. The first questions you should ask are “Who are you? Where did you get my details from?”
There are many ways in which Claims Management Companies and Solicitors can obtain your details following an accident. For example if you take your car to a garage to be repaired, report the incident to your insurers or hire a car all of these actions could mean that your personal details are being passed on without your knowledge.
As an injured Claimant the most important thing is freedom of choice. Don’t allow yourself to be bullied or forced into claiming by a company. There is no rush – if you are injured you have 3 years from the date of injury or date of knowledge to pursue a claim.
Take your time and evaluate your options carefully. Pursuing a claim for personal injury compensation can take a few weeks or months. For the more severely injured it could even take years. You need to be sure that you choose a representative who gives you the confidence to guide you through the process.
It’s all about individual choice, if you are happy for someone to deal with your personal injury claim in a call centre hundreds of miles away then of course, that is your choice.
However, without the unwanted bombardment by texts, telephone calls and emails you may just make better choices.
- Do you choose the personal experience?
- Do you choose a free local assessment of your claim?
- Do you choose the professional attention that you deserve following an accident?
- Do you choose to put a face to the person giving you advice?
- Do you choose to get every penny that you are entitled to if your claim succeeds?
If so, choose BRM as your personal injury solicitors.
