    True or false? The rise of compensation culture will count against my claim


    If you turn on the television these days, you often see a lot of adverts and shows about people making claims against companies and organisations for an accident they have had. The rise of compensation culture is definitely a cult of this modern day era. But, does this count against any claim you make, such as a slip, trip or fall?

    Why are more people making accident claims?

    Through such mediums as advertising and chat shows, more people are finding out they can get money from accidents they have had which were not their fault. This can be something as simple a small trip injury on a pavement which should have been repaired by the council to a serious fall claim which could have been prevented had a railing or barrier not been broken.

    Are all these claims genuine and do all claims such as slips, trips and fall claims succeed?

    The answer to this question is no. Some people unfortunately often try to either fake claims or exaggerate them to try to scam companies out of money. This is when claimants can get a bad reputation when it is only a few whose claims are not genuine.

    Luckily, through law firms and other companies, the non-genuine cases can be spotted and rejected before it gets as far as being heard by the court.

    Will this rise in compensation claims count against my claim?

    Due to the rise in non-genuine claims the process is a bit more in depth so that it is easier to see which claims are genuine and which aren’t. This means that your trip injury claim will be processed as an individual case like all claims and if genuine should not be affected by others’ claims.
