Should you choose to make an accident injury claim in Basingstoke and Deane?
If you are entitled to make an accident injury claim in Basingstoke and Deane, the decision as to whether to do so or not is entirely yours. Accident Advice Helpline will tell you your rights and we’ll also give you some idea of the amount of compensation you could receive for your injuries, but we will not push you to go ahead if you feel in any way uncomfortable about it.
What we do advise, though, is that you think very carefully about the benefits of bringing a case against the party responsible for your accident. They may have only been careless or negligent and didn’t intend the accident to happen, but it happened nonetheless. You will have been disadvantaged as a result and it’s your right to make a claim to try and restore your life, as far as possible, to the way it was before you were injured.
There are, of course, the obvious, physical scars you may have sustained, but you may also have been psychologically affected. You may suffer from depression or anxiety; or be diagnosed with a stress-related condition. This could be something you could claim compensation for.
Another unwanted effect of many accidents is financial hardship. You could have to pay out for prescriptions and transport to and from medical appointments. Perhaps you need help around the home or additional support with childcare. You may even be unable to work and suffer through loss of earnings as a result.
The law allows you to claim for all this, so that you can get your life back on track. The final point to be considered is that, very often, a successful claim against the party that caused the accident can be an important reminder of their legal duty. This can help them change the way they operate and therefore prevent the same thing happening to someone else in future.
