It’s a little known fact but there is a one in four chance that you will suffer an accident that could qualify for personal injury claims. But the chances are you won’t take advantage of your opportunity. This is because most people don’t want to make a fuss and will not claim even though they have every right to do so. This article will show you how to make sure that your rights are taken into consideration and what you should do to make personal injury claims in Broadland.
Much of the problem with personal injury law in this company revolves around the fact that the insurance firms are shaping the debate. They warn of rising numbers of claims and rising premiums to cover them. The image they project is that people are making claims which should not be liable to compensation. What they want is to make sure that the government brings in changes which make it more difficult for people to claim.
And there is some justification for this – it might seem – if you look at some figures. For example, a recent report found that although the numbers of car accidents taking place had fallen slightly, the number of personal injury claims being made was on the increase. The assumption is that these are down to people making claims for minor injuries such as whiplash.
However, independent reports suggest that this rise is actually down to better awareness about legal rights and that, in fact, there are many more people out there who should be claiming compensation to which they were entitled. In 2012, a You Gov poll found that only 20% of people who had good cases to make ever made a claim themselves. Often this was down to a lack of knowledge and an assumption that their injuries did not entitle them to make a claim. If this is the case then we think it’s a shame because it means many people out there are soldiering on without the financial support and assistance that they might find so valuable.
