Why you should work with an accident solicitor in Busby
Many people nowadays have the impression that they are able to do everything themselves, just because they have access to so much information online. 70% of people who go to the doctor look up their symptoms online and self-diagnose, before asking for the opinion of the specialist. A lot of them choose to self-treat and self-medicate. However, medical school lasts for good reason seven to ten years, and unfortunately many of these do-it-yourself people end up making things worse than they were in the first place.
A similar type of situation applies when it comes to personal injury claims. An accident solicitor in Busby will see things in your case, relevant details that can only be seen by an experienced professional. Let’s take an example — a simple case of a broken arm, because of a trip on a step that was not well signalled. Instead of just looking at the physical damage that the fall has caused (a broken arm, no possibility to use it for two weeks, plus another month of physiotherapy), a legal advisor would also look at the impact this broken arm has had on your life: whether it was your dominant arm, you had to miss work, you lost an important contract or just a salary, it has impacted your career and you’ve had extra costs because of not being able to drive your car or hiring childcare.
How long your claim will take
It really depends on what kind of injury you’ve suffered, how serious it was and how complex its implications. If you get in touch with an accident solicitor in Busby and ask them about this, they might give you an approximate value of how much time it will take. The advantage of the professional is that they have seen many cases and have the knowledge and experience. However, no accident solicitor can guarantee a timeframe.
Why you shouldn’t wait with your claim
First of all, because the money is meant to help you recover physically and financially. Personal injury compensation is there by law to support people who are hurt because of others’ mistakes or negligence. And when talking about money, isn’t it always better to get it sooner rather than later?
Another reason is that you are only allowed to file a personal injury claim three years from the date of getting injured. So, don’t procrastinate for too long or you will lose your right to the compensation.
