You’d think that you have a practically guaranteed claim when someone hits the back of your car whilst it’s stationary, right? In most scenarios you do – but occasionally the other driver may try and dispute the claim by suggesting that the version of events wasn’t as you claimed.
This shows the importance of having not just any old lawyer fighting your claim but having an expert law firm with the funds to keep fighting your corner all on a no win, no fee basis.
The circumstances above are as alleged by our client but the insurers denied fault by suggesting that our client had been weaving in and out of traffic in his car and had cut the defendant driver up, leaving them no time to stop. Sometimes drivers do try and suggest these things because they don’t want to have their insurance premiums hiked up and we sadly do not live in a world where everyone is prepared to be totally honest.
But when its one word against another, there are plenty of things we can do to prove our claim.
We have access to:
- Specialist barristers to fight your rights to claim. Over the years we have been working we have built up solid relationships with a lot of barristers across the UK who are on hand to help us fight your case
- Access to expert engineers who can provide reports in to the areas of damage on vehicles to show how an accident has occurred
- Access to the best medical experts for the purposes of supportive reports to prove the extent of your injuries
- Last but not least – access to our specialist legal team who have decades of experience in fighting for the rights of road accident victims
We continued to fund the whole of our client’s claim which can be a risky business when the costs of pursuing it and the costs of evidence mount up. But with a huge history of successful cases behind us, we have the resources to do this and we fought all the way and obtained the evidence we needed to.
Despite the allegation from the other driver that was, in essence, tantamount to an allegation of fraud by suggesting our clients version of events wasn’t true, we persuaded them to settle the case. Our client received a brilliant settlement of £8,500 which is three times the average amount for a minor whiplash injury case.
Not only does this show you the value in instructing an expert law firm to fight for the case but it also shows how your payout can be higher as well.
