    Ten reasons to seek compensation

    Accidents can happen. Sometimes people can fall over and it is nobody else’s fault. However there are times when there are unacceptable levels of risk and an injury can happen. There are plenty of reasons to seek compensation and here are ten of them…

    1.    Getting costs back

    It is easy to forget that people seeking compensation are doing so because they have had to replace items that someone else has damaged. It is only right that if someone else has damaged your car or other personal items that you get the money back from them.

    2.    Being able to get treatment

    There are a number of medical costs involved when someone is injured or suffers from a condition due to an accident. Being able to get these costs back will make it easier to get the treatment you need.

    3. Improving defective products

    If you are injured by a defective product then this is something that should be highlighted. As well as getting compensation it can force companies to issue recalls and remove dangerous products from sale.

    4.    Improving public services

    Pot holes in the road, cracks in the pavement and other potential hazards can result in injuries. If enough people make claims then the chances are more will be spent on repairs to avoid compensation claims in the future.

    5.    Reducing risk in the workplace

    It is the responsibility of businesses to ensure their employees are kept safe. Successful compensation claims ought to make them look at the working environment to ensure that actions are taken to make workplaces as safe as possible. While you can never remove risk entirely it can be reduced!

    6.    Getting closure

    No amount of compensation can make up for a lost friend or family member. However it may be possible to get some form of closure if negligence can be proven.

    7.    Proving negligence

    In order to prove negligence it has to be shown that someone made a mistake that led to a condition being made worse. As well as getting compensation for that negligence it helps to show that someone has not done their job properly and can help to improve standards.

    8.    Recovering travel costs

    If you normally cycle to work and get injured you can find yourself having to pay additional travel costs. You may not realise this, but it is possible to be compensated for any additional public transport travel costs that happen as a result of an injury or condition that was not your fault.

    9.    Improving safety

    If a business fails to put a “Wet Surface” sign up and someone slips and gets injured then this is their fault. If they then have to compensate people it is likely they will want to avoid paying compensation in the future and will make their working environments safer.

    10. Improved customer service

    Companies need to properly look after the people who buy their products. This means that they ought to be able to enter the environment safely, use a product with confidence and so forth.
