The Law Society campaign supports Personal Injury Solicitors. This week a bold new advertising campaign by the Law Society focuses on the benefits to Personal Injury Claimants of getting proper legal advice from a qualified Solicitor. The Partners of BTW commend the Law Society’s campaign which carries the strap line “don’t get mugged by an insurer – use a Solicitor” for making it clear that injury victims should not accept the offer of compensation made by an insurer. Desmond Hudson, Chief Executive of the Law Society said “this campaign doesn’t pull any punches, but we need to make a clear message: see your Solicitor, don’t accept the insurers first offer and don’t deal with Claims Management Companies”.
According to the Law Society, research obtained from the Financial Services Authority under a freedom of information challenge revealed that Personal Injury Claimants who turn down an insurers initial offer and took the equal advice from a Solicitor went on to get on average 3 times more compensation.
We at BTW Solicitors understand the difficulty in dealing with claims against insurers and whole heartedly endorse the Law Society’s campaign.
