The first point of contact for an injured person should be a Solicitor. Sadly since the late 1990s many injury victims have been drawn in to contacting claims management companies. These unqualified claims handlers exist only to make money by selling the details of the injured person to a solicitor.
Claims companies often mislead and provide inaccurate advice, claimants do not understand the agreements they are entering into. At the end of the claim, fees are deducted that the claimant was unaware of. A claims company may insist on the medic the solicitor uses. The claim will be sold to the highest bidder even if that solicitor is not local.
At ASD we have been acting for people in Sheffield and the surrounding area for over 30 years. We are solicitors and do not accept referrals from claims companies. We are an accredited practice by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. I ensure that our no win no fee scheme is transparent and understood by all our clients. I guarantee a home visit by a solicitor within three hours of the initial call. Clients receive expert advice from day one from a local specialist firm. Keep away from unqualified claims firms and go direct to local specialist.
I am passionate about acting for people in Sheffield and the surrounding area who have been injured on the road or at work. I believe clients would be much better served by a local firm rather than a national one.
