With the car accident industry in crisis, there is an increasing need for a lawyer who can help clients recover.
We spoke to some of the best and most sought-after car accident lawyers in the country, who have their own unique style and expertise.
“I would say most lawyers have had a good experience in the past,” says Peter Bockland, the owner of the London-based Bocklander Law Firm.
Bockland also said that his practice is a good fit for some clients.
“I have clients who have been in a car collision accident that have gone through the whole process, and have been represented by a lawyer,” he said.
“They have gone to court, they have been given an undertaking and it is a very professional process, with very good results.”
“Most people think they are going to get away with things, but the reality is that it can be a very stressful situation,” he added.
“It’s like a ticking time bomb.
If you are in a bad car accident and it’s happening on a weekend, you will never know what is going to happen, because the accident happens at 11pm and the car has been on the road for hours.”
According to Bocklands, there are two ways to recover in a collision.
One is through the courts.
“The second option is to go through mediation,” he explained.
If you are seeking a car insurance claim, Bockeland advises against doing this yourself.
“There are a number of very good companies who will work with you,” he says.
The second way is through an accident reconstruction service, such as the Car Crash Recovery Group.
Bockles clients usually get paid through this, he said, because it is an alternative to going through a lawyer.
“You can recover from a collision for a lot less,” he noted.
But in terms of the cost of the accident, Backland said that the average cost of a car crash is about £2,000, which is a lot cheaper than an insurance claim.
According for Bocklanders services, a successful claim is usually made within five to 10 days.
As far as getting a lawyer for your accident, he advises against having one immediately, as the insurance company may decide not to take your claim.
“If you want a lawyer, you should consider a private lawyer first,” he advised.
“But if you are having a car wreck and need to hire a lawyer right now, you may want to go to a private law firm,” he concluded.
