A personal injury solicitor was reported as speaking out against the practice of insurance companies putting pressure on victims of personal injury to accept lower awards of compensation than they be entitled to.

In the article, the personal injury solicitor highlights that some insurance companies send employees to the homes of victims to offer quick settlements in cases and they threaten the victim with a long and drawn out court proceedings if they do not accept a settlement on their terms.

The insurance companies do this to try and agree a low level of compensation with the victim and often once the victim has accepted an offer of compensation they are prevented from going back to ask for more compensation at a later stage even if the offer they accepted was significantly lower than what they ought to have received.

Insurance companies often make offers of compensation to personal injury victims that do not reflect their losses or injuries.

Victims of personal injury should always seek legal advice before agreeing to settle their claim for compensation with an insurance company to ensure they are receiving the amount of compensation they are entitled to.
