It appears that injury cases often get auctioned off to the insurance company that gives the highest bid to benefit on the case. For years, insurers have been selling personal injury cases to solicitors for ‘referral fees’, essentially a commission which lawyers must pay to represent individual claimants. Essentially, this puts people’s misery up for sale to the highest bidder.
Law firm Spencers Solicitors has launched a campaign to stop the practice of injury auctions. Visit the campaign website www.injuryauction.co.uk to support the cause and find out more about personal injuries being auctioned off to the highest bidder by insurance companies.
