Law Society launch new campaign - "Don't get mugged by an insurer - use a Solicitor"

A bold new advertising campaign by the Law Society focuses on the benefits to personal injury claimants of getting proper legal advice.

The six-week campaign "deliberately takes a bold, humorous and memorable approach to convey an important message", the Society said.

The 'Don't Get Mugged' campaign will feature eye-catching posters on public transport and in stations, radio advertising, online advertising and a YouTube video.

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."

Research from the Financial Services Authority following a freedom of information challenge "revealed personal injury claimants who turn down an insurer's initial offer and take legal advice from a solicitor get on average three times more compensation".

Here at Mackenzie Jones Solicitors our specialist team of Solicitors will ensure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
