You have the right to select your legal representation – the decision does not rest with your insurance company.
If you have been injured in a Road Traffic Accident, you may find that your insurance company refers you to its choice of solicitor – known as panel solicitors.
Panel solicitors frequently experience a conflict of interest. If the panel solicitor is in a financial arrangement with the insurance company, how can that solicitor be truly independent?
EU Law enshrines your right to choose the solicitor of your choice. The Insurance Companies (Legal Expenses Insurance) Regulations 1990 state that you have the right to choose your own solicitor.
In order to minimise costs, insurance companies often attempt to settle claims as quickly as possible. However, unquantified compensation awards may not fully reflect the damages to which you are entitled – especially where the duration of your recovery is unknown.
Hampson Hughes Solicitors – the personal injury experts
Hampson Hughes has developed a strong nationwide reputation for providing a first class bespoke service. We act independently, and we will ensure that you receive the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
Selecting Hampson Hughes Solicitors as your preferred legal representation – as opposed to panel solicitors – will ensure that you are treated as an individual. This means that your recovery will be managed properly, rather than been viewed as a potential long term financial loss.
Hampson Hughes does not answer to shareholders – unlike insurers and their solicitors – which allows us to make certain that your claim is processed in a manner befitting your best interests. We have a wealth of legal knowledge and we have access to a wide range of medical and engineering specialists – allowing for your claim to be processed swiftly and professionally.
