Under-settlement of personal injury claims
Most personal injury claims are settled out of court, meaning the amount of compensation secured is usually based on a combination of the value the lawyers for each side put on the claim and their respective skill at negotiation.
While this approach normally allows claims to be resolved faster, at lower expense and with less hassle for the claimant, it can also sometimes result in a claim being settled for less than it might have been due to inexperience or negligence on the part of the claimant’s legal team.
Tayntons’ personal injury lawyers, based in Gloucester, have extensive experience helping people who believe their personal injury claims have been under-settled. We can help you make a claim against your original legal team, giving you the chance to recover the money you believe you have lost out on and achieve a fair outcome.
We represent many of our clients on a no-win, no fee basis, allowing you to avoid any upfront cost or financial risk when pursuing compensation for under-settlement of a personal injury claim.
We also offer a free initial consultation, so we can review your claim with you, including why you believe the claim was under-settled, and advise you on your legal options.
