Insurers trying to deliberately under settle cases
The client was involved in road traffic accident caused by a third party driver. The client suffered a whiplash type injury and a soft tissue injury to his chest.
The insurers made him an offer of £1,648. Our solicitors were able to fund specialist medical evidence using our no win no fee funding. With this information, they were then able to advise the client that the offer did not reflect the true value of the case.
Our specialist solicitors then commenced Court proceedings against the insurers to secure fair compensation.
The case settled, without a Court hearing, when the client happily accepted an offer of £6,500.
The final settlement was approximately x 4 the initial offer made by the insurers.
