I was constantly kept up to date. I have used other Solicitors in the past but dealing with Goodmans Law was a whole different experience. I could not have asked for anything more.

I was regularly updated by Carol Hopwood and her assistant. I highly commend them both. There is nothing they could have done to improve the service I received. I would not hesitate to recommend Goodmans Law. They were fantastic.

SETTLING YOUR CLAIM DIRECTLY
What to do if an Insurance Company tries to settle your claim with you directly.
If you have been involved in an accident, you may find that the insurer of the person to blame calls you directly or even comes to your house. Sometimes, they will offer to settle your claim straightaway. We strongly advise you NOT to do this.
Our experience is that for many clients this is the wrong decision. We have acted for multiple clients who have been offered small amounts of compensation for cases worth much more. We had one elderly lady who received 11 times more that what was offered to her directly.
Insurance companies can be persuasive. Our advice is hold firm and advise them that you wish to speak to an independent solicitor before making a decision.
They may also tell you that they can refer you to their panel solicitor. We advise our clients not to be pushed towards a solicitor chosen by an insurance company. You are entitled to choose your own solicitor who is truly independent of insurance companies.
If you have been involved in an accident and would like some advice, please contact Goodmans Law on 0151 257 6000 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
