Compensation claim solicitors call for an end to "hard sell" tactics used by insurance companies


RTA compensation claim specialists Camps Solicitors ( are joining in calls made by the President of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers for an end to high pressure tactics used by insurance companies to force accident victims to settle their claims for a lot less than they are worth.

Amanda Stevens, APIL President, said last week that the Financial Services Authority was “turning a blind eye” to cases such as those of a woman who was offered a £1,000 payment immediately after being involved in an accident if she agreed to settle her compensation claim without seeking independent legal advice. Although the offer was increased to £1,700 after she declined, the woman in question used Ms Steven’s own law firm who managed to increase the amount recovered in her claim to over £10,000 as well as recovering her legal costs.

As a firm of solicitors dealing with thousands of accident claims every year, Camps Solicitors are regularly approached by people seeking independent legal advice following an accident. In many cases these accident victims have already been approached by representatives of insurance companies offering them cash sums if they agree not to take legal action. Whilst these cash sums may seem large, they often do not cover all the costs that someone might incur after an accident, such as lost earnings, medical treatments and vehicle repairs.

With Camps Solicitors acting on your behalf, it is a different story. We work with you, monitoring your recovery from any injuries you might have suffered, and if necessary sending you for medical treatment to aid your recovery. Our lawyers will advise you on any offers made by insurance companies, and we will take care of all communications, getting the insurers off your back, and allowing you to get on with your life.

We are used to dealing with insurance companies on behalf of our clients, and we will work hard to ensure any compensation you receive accurately reflects the seriousness of the injuries you suffered, and the impact they have had on your life.
