In medieval times the law used to work on the basis of trial by ordeal in which a defendant would be thrown into the water and if they floated they would be deemed guilty. At times it feels as if even for the claimant the legal system is becoming something of an ordeal, but there are ways to make it a little easier. Here we’ll show you how we can make claiming compensation in Christchurch slightly less of a harrowing experience.
Getting good advice
The first challenge people face is finding good reliable advice which they can use going forward. This is where we come in initially, ensuring people have access to all the information they need when making a claim.
You can find plenty of content on our website about most aspects of making a personal injury claim and we’ve also got a team of people on standby who will answer any questions you have. We do this through our free 24 hour helpline which was set up so people could get all the crucial information they needed to make a claim without leaving the comfort of their own home.
This short phone conversation is normally enough to tell us everything we need to know about your situation and whether or not you should be making a claim. It’s our way of helping you to dip your toe in the water and get your bearings without committing to anything.
In some cases we will suggest a follow up medical assessment to look into any injuries you have in a little more detail. We do this in order to establish in our minds not only whether you can claim but just how much compensation you should be entitled to. We then use this to set a figure against which we can push forward.
Going to court
The good news for anyone dreading a court appearance is that in most of the cases we deal with you won’t even get that far. This is because the other side often decides to settle out of court. It makes sense from their point of view. After all – who wants to go through a long and costly court battle if they think they are going to lose at the end of it all. Their first offer might be lower than you really deserve, in which case you can reject them until they come back with something more appropriate.
