Facing a defendant in court
For some people, the stress of making a court appearance is the main reason why they do not want to pursue a claim for compensation. This is particularly true in the cases of work-related injuries, where an injured party does not want to face their current or previous employer in court in fear of the ramifications it might have on their career.
Stigma of making a claim for compensation
For some people, there may be a stigma attached to making a claim for compensation in that is inappropriate to seek financial remuneration for serious injuries suffered, or as some might label it, “seeing only the £ signs.” This couldn’t be further from the truth. Suffering an accident can place you and your family under an undue financial burden as the result of medical bills or lost working time, compounding the injustice of the pain and suffering you’ve already felt. Compensation can go some way towards redressing this financial imbalance that occurs as the result of an accident.
