In general the reason you engage the services of a solicitor is to represent your best interests. Consulting with an experienced Personal Injury Solicitor before accepting any settlement will make sure you receive a fair offer.
After you have an accident you may be told you do not need a solicitor and you may even be put under some pressure to accept a settlement offer. Whomever you are claiming against will be represented by a solicitor and it is important to protect your interests.
Remember that the injury you have suffered may not just go away but linger for years to come.
