Healys has a strong reputation in Under-Valued Personal Injury Settlement professional negligence and we are one of only a few claimant firms ranked in the Legal 500. We pursue claims against many different professionals and on a wide range of issues.
Often the claimant is unaware that his or her claim has been under settled but this can occur because of a number of reasons:
To help those injured in personal injury accidents and cases of medical negligence who have not recovered as much compensation as they should have, we have a specialist unit founded on our high degree of expertise in personal injury claims.
In our experience, claimants are in some cases let down by their legal team when early settlement is recommended and at too low a level and/or at too early a stage. This can (and often does) lead to compensation that is inadequate.
If so, you may be entitled to claim for Under-Valued Personal Injury Settlement negligence.
