Solicitors vs Claim Companies

The truth about claims companies

Unfortunately, many people do not realise that not all firms advertising personal injury services are solicitors. In fact, a very large proportion of the accident claim websites and adverts you see are not from solicitors. Since No Win-No Fee was first introduced there has been an explosion of ‘claims companies’. These are not solicitors firms. They are often run by people who have little or no legal training whatsoever. In fact anyone can start up a claims company as no training or experience is required.

The Government tried to prevent the of growth of claims companies by banning referral fees being paid for personal injury claims as most of them made their money by selling on people’s cases. However, these companies have adapted and are still operating. Given a choice between a firm of qualified solicitors (properly regulated and insured) and a company of unqualified “claims handlers”, most people would pick the solicitors every time. So why do these claims companies flourish? The simple answer is that many people do not recognise the distinction./h4>

Obviously we would like you to choose us to handle your accident claim. But if you decide not to favour us then we would strongly recommend that you use the services of another qualified and regulated firm of solicitors rather than a claims company.
