    Let our Babergh Accident claim solicitors help you

    Whether you’re looking for Babergh accident claim solicitors or looking for help elsewhere in the country, we know how important it is to get full justice for your claim. However many people walk away from a claim having been short changed. Yes, they may have won their case, but for a variety of reasons they may have been under compensated. This article will look at the common issues which can crop up and how you can minimise the damage they inflict.

    Accident claim solicitors could help you

    The first mistakes can come from you. Any law firm you choose is only as good or bad as the information you supply. When we speak to people about their case we ask that they provide every piece of information which they think is relevant. This includes the contact details of any witnesses at the scene and any evidence which could prove useful in helping us to determine whether or not you have a realistic chance of a successful outcome.

    Medical information is also extremely important. You may have already been treated by a doctor and received an assessment about your chances of claiming compensation. However, even so it may well be worth scheduling another assessment. Doctors are not infallible and it is more than possible for one to make a mistake. We’re not saying you should discard anything that your doctor says – just that you should get as much information as possible. A second opinion can be helpful in picking up anything your doctor may have missed.

    People often also do not tell us about issues they are experiencing. This is a particular problem with psychological problems. It’s important to realise how the mental side of things can affect us. Things such as depression should not go untreated, so if you’re having any of these issues it’s extremely important that you get the help and support you need – otherwise you could be letting yourself in for all sorts of trouble.

    Assessing a claim

    When you’ve been injured you can also make a mistake by choosing the wrong firm to take your case forward. If they are not experienced in your type of claim, for example, you may be short changed. Equally, if an insurance firm contacts you with an offer of compensation, think very carefully before accepting. To increase your chances, it’s a good idea to only use firms who have a solid track record in personal injury claims and your case in particular.
