You would be shocked to discover the number of people that have been entitled to personal injury compensation and never made a claim. Keeping that in mind, in this post we are going to explore the reasons for this in further depth.
Why some people don’t make claims in Exeter
- They don’t realise they have a claim – There is only one place to begin and this is with the fact that some people don’t actually realise they are entitled to compensation and so they don’t think to make a claim. However, to be eligible for compensation you simply need to show that someone else is to blame for your suffering.
- They leave it too late to claim – A lot of people don’t realise that there is a three-year time limit on all personal injury claims in Exeter. You have three years from the date of the accident, unless your injuries have developed over time, in which case you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.
- They don’t want to go to court – Many individuals are put off from making a claim because they don’t want the hassle that is associated with going to court. This is understandable, however, it is highly unlikely that this will occur. In fact, more than 97 per cent of personal injury cases are settled without the need for a trial.
- They don’t want to lose their job – When it comes to workplace accident claims, many people fear losing their jobs. This is something you should not worry about. After all, your employer will recognise that they need to compensate you and they will have insurance in place to cover this. Moreover, if they were to fire you, you’d only have grounds for unfair dismissal, which would land them in further trouble.
