David Green, Managing Partner at MTA Solicitors supports New PI Campaign

  1. 1. For more information contact: Catherine Greenwood Head of PR and Marketing, MTA Solicitors T: 0208 437 0882 E: catherine.greenwood@mtasolicitors.com August 2013 'Don't get mugged by an insurer - use a solicitor' says bold new advertising campaign by The Law Society Three million people are injured in accidents each year, according to The Law Society and if you believe that the accident wasn’t your fault and you could be owed compensation, The Law Society is warning against saying ‘yes’ to the first compensation payment you’re offered. This is the key message of their campaign launched in June. Backing the campaign, David Green, Managing Partner at MTA Solicitors LLP, who also run the LawStore at Intu Bromley (formerly The Glades) said, ‘There are lots of enticing offers around that come from ‘Claims Management Companies’ or insurers, but be careful as they might not offer you the best deal, if you think you are owed compensation. These companies are effectively acting as middle men for your claim, so you are likely to get a much better deal if you take advice directly from a Solicitor.” Research from the Financial Services Authority which only became publically available because of a freedom of information challenge, revealed personal injury claimants who turn down an insurer's initial offer and take legal advice directly from a solicitor, get on average three times more compensation. Desmond Hudson, chief executive of the Law Society said: “This campaign doesn’t pull any punches, but we need to make a clear message, see your solicitor, don’t accept the insurers’ first offer and don’t deal with claims management companies. Pursuing your claim with a solicitor will mean you will get what you are genuinely entitled to.” MTA Solicitors LLP runs the LawStore at Intu Bromley with the aim of making legal advice more accessible. Green continues, “It was for this very reason that we opened Lawstore in the Bromley shopping centre nearly three years ago now, as it is always better to get legal advice directly from a qualified solicitor, and some people find traditional solicitors offices quite intimidating. As an accessible alternative to a formal office, LawStore has proved very successful and widely supported in the Community, as we offer legal advice on employment issues, Conveyancing, Wills and Probate and family law as well as on personal injury claims.”

Instead, visitors are welcomed by a relaxed and informal setting where they can get the legal advice they need from MTA Solcitors, without enduring complicated legal jargon or facing concerns of paying for time before they even establish if they have a case.
