Some people question whether they really need to instruct a solicitor when it comes to a personal injury or medical negligence matter.
In a personal injury claim arising from a road traffic accident for example, it is common for injured parties to deal directly with the Defendant’s insurance company.
The Defendant Insurer might agree to pay for the cost of repairs to your vehicle, and even make an offer for injuries you have suffered. In most cases, any offer put forward by the Defendant when an injured party does not have legal representation is likely to be significantly undervalued.
The Law Society highlights some benefits of instructing a legal representative:
- The law can be complicated so it’s important to get the best advice you can. Solicitors are the experts when it comes to the law and how it affects you;
- Legal Representatives will probably have dealt with the same or a very similar issue to the one you have, so will have experience in how to handle the situation;
- Legal representatives are thoroughly trained and rigorously tested in their knowledge of the law.
