They could have neglected to carry out a full and component examination of your injuries or failed in providing the right level of care to you which has caused you further ill health.

Using accident claims solicitors in Worcester to claim compensation
We know that when an accident happens, you’re probably thinking more about getting treatment for your injuries rather than suing the person responsible. But, at some point, you might realise that you should seek damages to cover the pain you’ve endured and to recover any financial costs. If you decide to look for personal injury solicitors in Worcester, you no doubt will find firms of lawyers based in The Tything, Sansome Walk, Castle Street and other areas of Worcester. The important thing to check, though, is whether they concentrate purely on accident claims and whether they offer No Win No Fee services. We tick the box in both cases and operate a nationwide service meaning we could help you claim for an accident in Worcester.
We are registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and provide a remote service. That means you can deal with your claim over the phone, by email or online. You’ve got nothing to lose by calling us as we offer a no-obligation case review and free legal advice. One simple call could mean you find a more experienced solicitor than you would locally or one who specialises in cases like yours.
Once your consultation is over, we’ll appoint a solicitor if your case is deemed suitable. They will discuss everything with you to get a full understanding of how you have suffered because of the accident. Once they’ve done so, they’ll move swiftly to gather evidence to support your case. This might include photographs you can supply, medical records, police reports or witness statements. Additionally, you’ll be booked in for a local medical assessment so that your injuries can be recorded by an independent medical specialist. They’ll also offer a prognosis for the future as well.
To make the claims process easier for you, your solicitor will handle all communication once they’ve sent your compensation request to the defendant. That means you won’t be overwhelmed with technical legal jargon or complex medical information. Throughout your claim, updates on its progress will be supplied and you’ll be able to ask your solicitor questions if you think of any. If the defendant’s lawyers deny liability for the accident, your solicitor will try to counter their objections by providing additional evidence.
Before accepting any compensation offer that’s made, your solicitor will discuss it with you and may reject it if they feel that the amount offered doesn’t fairly compensate you for your suffering. If you’re considering using our accident claims solicitors covering Worcester to help you claim, why not call our team today?
