Accident Claims Guide

If you are injured in an accident, it is important to remember that you have the power to choose who handles your case.

Many victims are unaware of this and simply go along with their insurer’s choice of solicitor, or accept an offer from the insurer of the person at fault. However, a 2013 Law Society study showed why you should think twice before proceeding.

According to their research, gathered from the Financial Services Authority under a freedom of information request, those who elect to find their own specialist representative to handle their case received as much as three times more compensation than victims who allowed their insurer to make the decision.

Many solicitors specialise in areas such as personal injury or clinical negligence, so there is good reason to seek out an expert who will offer you the best chance of receiving the compensation you deserve.

Why choose Sheldon Davidson Solicitors?

Our experienced team can help with a number of common compensation claims, including accidents at work, road traffic accidents, criminal injuries, medical negligence, professional negligence and industrial disease claims.

We will represent you throughout your claim, taking care of all aspects of your case to make sure you are well looked after for the entirety of the process.

For example, if your injury requires specialist medical care we will ensure this is available to you straight away, while in the event of a road accident we will secure you a replacement vehicle while your old one is repaired.

One thing that claimants must bear in mind is the time limit placed on personal injury cases, which leaves you with a limited period in which a claim can be made. This is usually around three years after an accident occurs, so it is vital that you begin your claim as soon as possible.
