If you’re injured as the result of an accident – especially a road traffic accident – you may quickly find yourself bombarded with offers of assistance from all directions.
The other party’s insurer may be in touch to offer you help.
Whilst you should not necessarily turn this down, it is important to be aware of the potential pitfalls.
In this episode of the Moray Claims / Grigor & Young podcast, Peter Brash, one of our accredited, specialist personal injury solicitors, discusses the question: “Should You Settle Your Personal Injury Claim Directly With The Insurance Company?” and also the following:
- What is meant by “third party assistance” and “third party capture”;
- Why you need to understand the potential problems associated with “pre-medical” offers; and
- Why taking stock and obtaining some specialist, independent legal advice might be in your best interests rather than settling too quickly and regretting it later.
