Should You Settle a Claim Early?
Insurance companies are very experienced at knowing the value of claims. They can often make an offer soon after an injury has occurred in an attempt to save themselves money down the line as they know the offer is less than what the claim is worth. These offers often take advantage of injured people who do not have legal representation and do not understand how the claim process works in the hope they may be under financial stress and willing to accept an offer that is below the fair value of their claim.
One of the common problems with accepting an early offer is that you will not know how long your injuries will last and how severe they are. A specialist personal injury solicitor would be able to advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of accepting any offer in light of what a fair entitlement to compensation is in your particular case. Remember that insurance companies have no duty to make a fair offer, they have a motive to make a profit by paying out less in claims. A specialist personal injury solicitor will have a duty to act in your best interests.
One of the best things I experienced was the personal touch. It can be daunting dealing with solicitors and I never felt like a hindrance. Gary was always available on the phone and email for me and always responded very quickly. I know of an elderly person dealing with Gary who really appreciated being able to meet face to face in a place where she felt comfortable. I think both types of meetings are great as clients have various needs which were met very easily in the way SOS operates.
Friendly, easy to talk to, professional support from start to finish. The service was exceptional, communication was timely and never overbearing. Everything was explained clearly along with expected timelines for completion. The team went above and beyond to sort out any issues that may have arisen during the process. Overall, very satisfied with the service.
What we found best was the professionalism of the service overall, the confidentiality, empathy and understanding. Communication was always clear in both e-mail and in person. Response times to e-mails, and meetings, was very good. I believe your fees are very competitive, and good value for your service.
