Will Hanrahan in the dock

AdvantagesPeople are getting wise to them

DisadvantagesVery naff ads

"...bile? The inestimably awful Claims Direct, complete with their ads from Will Hanrahan, the particularly smarmy front man of The TV Channel's Buyers Guide, Mr Despicable if ever you saw one. I can only suggest that if you were thinking of contacting Claims Direct on your route to the loot that YOU THINK AGAIN mon brave - this is a NO WIN industry for the individual, thje ambulance chasers inherit the earth... ..."

Why I really do hate Claims Direct

Advantagesnone

Disadvantageseverything

"...question is that bloomin' annoying Claims Direct "compensation advert" bleating things like "If you've been hurt in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Mrs Wiggle called us after she fell over a leaf. With our help, Mrs Wiggle won £6,148 pounds compensation from her local council, who were thick enough to allow the leaf to fall in the first place." Wonder what would happen if I tried to sue them for harrassment... Telephone Person ..." Read review

First Declan Swann now we have Carl Scaiffe ARGHHH

AdvantagesNone at ALL

DisadvantagesDont even go there, I would be here all day, Cheesy, Cheap, Annoying, etc

"...a part in those bloody Claims Direct Adverts” Actors says: “Erm, yes, But…” Employer says: “I’m sorry, but you don’t have the part, you done my head in, in them bloody adverts, so get out of the door NOW” Why do I hate these adverts so bloody much? They are just plain annoying, they are VERY cheaply made and the actors they employ are just pathetically lacking in charisma and err well, acting ..." Read review

Make Easy Money

Advantagessee op

Disadvantagessee op

"...a good angle and call claims direct! For a simple outlay of nothing they will take some hapless person to court on your behalf in the search for compensation. The "compensation culture" has taken a long time to build in this country. In America this has long been a problem, car insurance and liability insurance are both expensive items, but very necessary. ~~~ We Are Encouraged to Claim !~~~ Here in England things are now rapidly heading the ..."

This is the way to make REAL money

AdvantagesFor us? None For them? Profit

Disadvantagessee above

"...jackpot. One phone call to Claims Direct or Accident Group.com or any of the other companies like them, and Bingo, you are a lottery winner. Now there is probably a whole lot more to it that that, but isn’t it strange that these companies seem to have wads of cash to advertise and push these sort of scenarios into the minds of anyone who watches the telly. Some, like myself, take one look at Deklan Swan ( who incidentally is probably one ..." Read review

BLOODY ANNOYING ADS

AdvantagesNONE!

DisadvantagesAnnoying adverts, aired too much, bad company

"...3 years? If so call Claims Direct and help household insurance, car insurance, etc. all go through the roof and let a dirty, law-bending company line their pockets with gold. I have had no experience with Claims Direct but having seen loads of their terrible and annoying adverts I know that I would NEVER use Claims Direct, the Accident Group or any other of those so-called legal companies. Claims Direct have had various adverts. One even made ..." Read review

If I hear about Declan Swann one more time....

AdvantagesHelping make legal aid accessable, I suppose.

DisadvantagesAnnoying, repetitive, manipulative advert

"...this accident his mother asked Claims Direct for their help, which they gave on a "no win, no fee basis". How generous, you all cry. Yes you do, I can hear you. There are many references by senior Claims Direct staff about how "It takes a team to win a case. Claims Direct provides that team." and also how "It's not just all about money - Mrs Swann wanted to know that no-one else would be hurt like her son was. Claims Direct provided her with that ..."

The Claims Direct Myth

AdvantagesNone, when you consider the other options available

DisadvantagesA whopping chunk of your compensation deducted as a fee

"Whenever I see the Claims Direct advert it really makes me cringe. If you ignore the rather cheap production values and concentrate on the message then this firm can seem to provide a very valuable service. No Win No Fee! Mrs Such & Such gets £10,000! Yes, it all seems very helpful if you have had the misfortune of being injured in an accident. But what's the catch? Yes, there is a catch. Claims Direct, in common with many other companies of this ..." Read review

Unethical Claims Direct

AdvantagesGood if you fancy trying to get some money for scratchcards and you're on the dole.

DisadvantagesUnethical, sharks, no win-no fee-major aggro

"...injury. His mum calls Claims Direct and they get her an unspecified amount of compensation. While we are being told this there are shots of Little Timmy on a beach (why?!?), gazing lovingly at his mum (maybe she'll buy him a Mars bar if she hasn't spent it all on scratchcards) and running around on the playground, but supervised this time. Now as if thats not enough (the last place I'd want to go if I'd injured myself there would be a playground) ..." Read review

Claims Direct and Declan Swan

AdvantagesCan help injured People

DisadvantagesIts cheap and awful

"...the stupid, cheap and nasty claims direct adverts. The same stupid advert is shown every time the adverts are shown. I wonder why claims direct have invested so little in their advertising campaign. Its most probably because they are unsuccessful. I reckon that Declan swan advert cost about £2000. The actors are damn right awful. My 5-year-old sister sounds more Persuasive than those stupid wannabe actors in there cheap peacock suits. I feel ..." Read review

Had an accident

AdvantagesPossible profit

DisadvantagesCatch, american trash

"...won £10,000 pounds by using Claims direct." What they actually mean is "Had an accident not your fault, no win no fee! but if we do win we want 83% of the total amount payed out!" There was even a case were a women became in debt because the compensation was so small that she had to pay the minimum charge for a win in court and she could not afford to pay it, even with the compensation. In my opinion these kind of firms are american trashy ..." Read review

Worst Advert ever

Advantagesnone, appart from sticks in someones mine for all the wrong reasons.

Disadvantageseveryone hates it

"The claims direct adverts are the most sickening, cheesy, fake, degrading adverts ever to be shown on television, i mean who wants to know about how Declan needs glasses, maby the first time you might feel a tiny bit sorry for him but after the 50th time you feel like Declan is satan himself. The adverts are poor, you see a man walking around a fake set with telephone operators apparently working telling us in their 45 second adverts about how ..." Read review

Declan and Claims Direct

Advantages??

Disadvantagesbad advert in general, gives off wrong image(?)

"I can't believe how cheesy this adverts are - I mean really!! The actors are cheesy (including the milky bar kid there), their voices are unbelievably cheesy and the sets .... yes, you guessed it - cheesy! On the serious side though, they seem to be encouraging people to claim for anything, which is not good for this country (or what's left of it0. I wonder why they don't spend their money making a more professional advert, telling people about their ..." Read review

What A Waste Of Time And Money

AdvantagesIf you like going to court

DisadvantagesRead The Review

"...somone had not seen the Claims Direct advert considering that it is on every channel and every set of adverts. There is no-ware safe from the incredibly annoying, terribly acted and un-heart breaking scenarios that Claims Direct Produce. Who cares if I can win £10,000 for walking down my street and slipping over the pavement. Why would someone want to sue for such a small accident? Claims Direct are there with there cheesey irritating adverts to ..." Read review
