Freedom to choose your own solicitor - frequent questions:

 

Q: My own insurance company want to appoint a solicitor to act for me. Do I have to use the solicitor appointed by my insurance company?

 

Answer: NO. Many people have the benefit of legal expenses insurance attached to their motor insurance policy. Even where there is no legal expenses cover your motor insurer may offer to appoint a solicitor to deal with your claim at no cost to you. Whether you have legal expenses insurance or not you are not obliged to use the solicitor suggested by your insurers. You are free to choose your own solicitor.

 

 

 

Q: What should I do if the opponent's insurance company or their solicitors offer to deal with my claim?

 

Answer: Obtain your own independent legal advice. In recent years it has become more and more common for your opponent's insurance company to offer to deal with your claim for compensation for personal injury directly or to appoint a solicitor to act on your behalf. You may find that after an accident you are contacted by solicitors who have been passed your details by the insurance company.

 

It is important to remember that the insurers and their solicitors are acting in the best interest of the insurance company and not in the best interests of you the injured party. This means that there is a conflict of interest which will often result in offers to settle a claim at an amount which is much lower than the amount to which you are entitled. Often insurers and their solicitors will make an offer to settle within days of an accident to try to tempt you to accept a quick settlement.

 

Remember: such offers are often far below the actual value of a claim and if made very quickly after an accident it will not be possible at that stage to assess whether the injury will result in long term problems. If you accept a 'quick offer' from an insurer you should be aware that you cannot 're-open' the case at a later date if the injury turns out to be more serious than first thought.

 

You should remember that you are entitled to obtain your own legal advice and that you are free to use a solicitor of your choosing. We would strongly recommend that you do not agree to deal directly with the opponent's insurers or solicitors appointed by them without first taking your own independent legal advice.
