You probably wouldn’t dream of taking any form of 100% no win no fee* personal injury action against a friend after suffering a minor injury due to their negligence, but what if you were hurt to the degree that you required some quite complicated medical treatment and had to take time off from work unpaid?
If your livelihood was going to be put at risk and you were going to have to pay for expensive medical treatment, you might decide that you would have no choice but to take action against your buddy. If you have found yourself in this predicament, you should seek out some free claims advice in Hambleton. You might find that seeking a compensation pay-out might not be as bad for your relationship as you might think.
Seeking compensation from a friend and claims advice in Hambleton
In most cases you will probably find that your friend’s liability insurance would cover any pay-out that you were due if you were on his or her property, so your chum’s bank balance might not take the battering that you had first assumed. This is not to say that your friend will not be put to any expense, as he or she might have to pay an excess and will almost definitely see a rise in his or her premium.
Nevertheless, it will only be right that you are compensated for what happened to you, especially if your injury is going to have an ongoing and serious impact on your life. Don’t let worries about your friendship hold you back from making a claim for what could be rightfully yours.
No matter how close your bond with the individual who was responsible for you being injured in an accident that was not your fault, you would be foolhardy to allow your friendship to leave you seriously out of pocket if you were left in the somewhat unfortunate predicament outlined above.
