Experience can tell you a lot in this world and in the 15+ years we’ve been operating we’ve learned that no claim is ever as straightforward as you hope. This is why personal injury claims in Blaby need the best people for the job, as well as a plan in case things go wrong.
When you can claim
On the face of things the law surrounding personal injury claims in this country looks oh so simple. If you’ve been hurt in an accident which was not your fault, you should be entitled to compensation – simples (as a few talented meerkats would say).
Indeed on the face of things, the claims we make are quite simple. The majority don’t even go so far as the courts, with the other side coming to us with a settlement offer before it even remotely gets that far.
However, even these cases experienced a few bumps and scrapes along the way.
Getting the right amount
The first thing to remember is that winning is not everything. Often we have cases where the issue of blame is never in doubt, but there is some wrangling about the extent of compensation which should be awarded.
Insurance companies will seek to minimise the damage which is why they will probable come back with a settlement offer. Their hope is that they can persuade you to settle for less.
It’s at moments like these that it’s useful to have a clear idea about how much compensation you should be awarded. At Accident Advice Helpline we always organise free compensation estimates. This allows you to set expectations from an early stage.
As the client, though, you can also be your own worst enemy by not telling us everything about the injuries you’ve suffered. People often overlook issues they are not comfortable talking about or which they do not believe are relevant to their case. Yet in truth everything should be accounted for. This is why we often organise follow up medical assessments so we can get it clear in our own mind about how much compensation we think you should be entitled to claim.
Making personal injury claims in Blaby
The last thing to remember, though, is that every claim represents a small but significant risk. There is no way to be certain about the outcome of any case, which is why we work on the basis of no-win, no-fee. This ensures that all personal injury claims in Blaby remain affordable for everyone. If you win your case you will have the compensation to cushion the expense. If not, you won’t have to pay a single penny. It’s a great way to ensure that no matter what happens you won’t be forced deeper into debt because you’ve made a claim.
