Always appoint a Solicitor.
You are not required to use a solicitor to help submit the legal paperwork for your personal injury claim. However, over 90% of claimants do use a solicitor (We will explain why)
Just 55% of all claims submitted to the Injuries Board were settled for the amount offered in the assessment. In other words, they only settled one in five cases. Most claims result in negotiated settlements between the insurance company and the claimants Solicitor, long before the average 9-15 months it takes the injuries Board to assess your case.
Secondly, the person/legal entity liable to compensate you, may agree to have your case assessed by PIAB, wait on your assessment and then turn around (after 9-15 months) and reject the assessment and deny liability. You, who acted in good faith, is then left in the position that you need to instruct a solicitor to issue Court proceedings, but during the 9-15 months Injuries Board process, vital evidence that is essential to prove your case will not be preserved – instructing us immediately will ensure this does not happen.
