Bury, no win no fee* claims
According to statistics from YouGov the vast majority of people (around 80%) who could make a personal injury claim never get around to doing so.

There is a growing sense that the legal system simply is no longer there to support people who do not have the financial resources to pay legal bills. However, there are ways around it, you just need to know a little more about what you are and are not entitled to.
Making a claim
Many people suffer injuries which they deem to be too insignificant for a personal injury claim. As a result they choose to solider on regardless. However, even a comparatively minor injury such as whiplash can have a significant effect on someone’s life either by forcing them off work or making them seek out medical treatment. As such, as long as you can clearly quantify the effect these injuries have had, there is a good chance that you will be entitled to make a claim for compensation. In short it always pays to seek out the advice of an expert as it may well turn out that you’re entitled to claim more than you originally thought.
