Every day, there are individuals who begin the process of making accident claims in the UK. Sometimes, no one is responsible for an accident. For example, if you are walking through the woods in cold weather and you slip on some ice, it wouldn’t be anyone’s fault; it’s just one of those things. However, some accidents are the result of negligence on the part of someone else, and if you’re not to blame and you know someone else is, you might have good cause to press on with a claim.
Even if you know you have a strong argument to put forward to make a claim, it can still be understandable to feel hesitant about doing so. For example, you might be worried about the complexity of claiming, and about the length of time it might take. Most people feel nervous of going ahead with a claim, so you are not alone in this respect.
