Aims and principles
Injury Watch - the accident claims experts aims to counter the myth that a "compensation culture" exists in Britain today and to presses for the rights of victims to receive the compensation due to them. We campaign against business practices intended to rip-off claimants wherever we find them. We strongly oppose the culture of delay, obfuscation and legal challenge which we believe insurance companies are using in a cynical attempt to limit their liabilities to pay valid claims, particularly to asbestos victims.
For a wide variety of legal advice visit the Thomas Horton website We are accredited by the Association of British Insurers and the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA). At the same time we deplore the behaviour of claims handlers who promise no-win-no-fee agreements but dip into compensation rightfully due to the claimant if the case is successful. The guiding principle of Injury Watch - the accident claims experts is to act in the victim's best interest. We aim to offer you the best advice and the highest quality service using the best solicitors available by utilising services from around the industry such as the Association of British Independent Chartered Accountant.
About Injury Watch - the accident claims experts
Injury Watch - the accident claims experts provides free advice, information and support resources for victims of harm, from victims of relatively minor hurt or injury to those who have suffered greatly from the negligence of others. We will help individuals directly to pursue a successful claim through a panel of solicitors (such as MyInjuryLawyer) which is widely recognised as comprising the leading workplace-illness, personal injury and clinical negligence practices in the UK.
At the same time we provide technical assistance, technology and resources to victim groups such as Victim Support and Victim Support London to establish an online presence to recruit support, provide mentoring or discover information. One area where we can assist is in discovering details of long defunct companies and their "disappeared" insurance companies which is particularly important in cases with a long latency such as the asbestos cancer mesothelioma.
We actively campaign for the interests of all victims to be upheld by making representations directly to government bodies and insurance and legal groups in the media. When we cannot provide assistance ourselves, we will provide quality advice and pointers to the best people to assist you further.
