Increasingly, we find that Insurance Companies who insure the negligent party are encouraging innocent victims of negligence to settle their claims directly. This is a practice commonly known as ‘third party capture‘. Basically, the Insurer will contact the victim of negligence and seek to settle a claim directly with them without medical evidence instead of the victim having the benefit of sound independent legal advice and evidence which would show the actual extent of damage caused. Whilst you may think that this could be seen as an easy and quick way to settle your claim, this is exactly what the other side want you to think. Please remember that Insurers are using their best endeavours to settle these claims for a figure plucked out of the air. They certainly do not have a victim’s best interests at heart. We believe that this course of action is immoral, inappropriate and unethical and results in significant monetary loss to a victim of negligence. Without the assistance of an independent Solicitor, the public would not not know what their claim was worth. No Solicitor, Claims Company, Insurance Company or otherwise can advise anybody on what their claim is worth without obtaining clear evidence.
The Insurer is simply trying to ‘buy off‘ their risk by offering a small sum of money to ‘see an end to the claim‘ which has been proven to result in far less than what should be recovered. Lamb and Co continue to campaign for this practice to stop. Victims of accidents need help and assistance and have a right to obtain the correct level of compensation. It is not fair and completely wrong to suggest a sum of money to a member of the public who settles the claim at that point. There have been numerous occasions where the victim has continued to suffer pain and suffering and sadly, because of this appalling behaviour by the Insurers, they have been unable to achieve any more than what they agreed in the days or weeks immediately after the accident took place.
Properly valuing and quantifying a claim for pain and suffering, as well as financial losses may take a bit more time but in our view, it is fundamental in ensuring that you recover the proper compensation payable to you This cannot be done by way of a phone call from the Insurer who does not have the public’s interest at heart. They are, after all, only their to make money for their shareholders.
