Compensation in Chelmsford


One of the more frustrating things we experience at Accident Advice Helpline is people who, for one reason or another, fail to get the most from a personal injury claim. It’s often small mistakes, but it can lead to people losing out on money to which they should be entitled and from our point of view that’s a big shame. So this article is designed for anyone who is looking to claim compensation in Chelmsford and wants to make sure they get the full amount to which they are entitled.

What your rights are

When you start claiming compensation in Chelmsford there are certain rights and obligations which you’ll have to stick to. For starters you’ll be required to prove that the accident was not your fault and that it has had a negative impact on your way of life.

If you can show that then you should be entitled to compensation based on how much it has cost you and how bad the injuries are. For example, a severe long term injury will naturally account for more than an injury which only leaves you out of action for a few months.

Getting the most out of a claim

The problem is, that many people don’t get the full amount of compensation. This can often be because they do not choose the right lawyer. Some just go through an insurance company which means you’re getting no expertise at all on your side.

Others go through a claims management firm which looks and feels like a law firm, but is anything but. They will tend to give your case only the most basic attention before moving onto something else.

People also under estimate how long it will take to get back on their feet. For instance, if you’re going to be off work for six months then you might claim compensation based on this amount of time out of work. However, things can be complicated and it is possible that you could be off work or not fully back at work for another eight or nine months which means you’ll have substantially under-estimated the amount of compensation to which you’re actually entitled.

Other people don’t take into account all their physical problems. Make sure you have at least one medical assessment, and if possible a couple, so you have the full picture. It’s always better to provide too much information rather than not enough. Psychological problems are something that you should always consider, although proving a connection may not be straightforward.
