5 Reasons Your Compensation Claim May Be Unsuccessful
There are a number of reasons why an accident may occur either in the workplace or a public domain and if someone else is responsible, you are entitled to make a compensation claim. There is no guarantee, that your claim will be successful and there are many reasons why this can happen. There are some common reasons why a claim for compensation is unsuccessful and it is important to be aware of these prior to starting the process.
Lack of Evidence
It is important to provide as much evidence as possible relating to your accident and injury, as this is what Accident Advice Helpline will use to try and get a positive outcome for your claim. A common error when making a claim is failing to provide any or enough evidence to back it up and this can cause it to be unsuccessful at the initial stage. It is important to have as much information as possible, as this will help you to get a positive outcome. If you don’t have any witnesses to the accident, this may also affect the likelihood of a successful claim.
It is illegal to make a false claim against someone, so you really need to be positive that your accident was caused by someone else. If you are not certain that this is the case, you should not progress with your compensation claim.
You should get all of the information regarding your accident and injury clear before you start your compensation claim. If the information you provide does not tie up, it may result in your claim being unsuccessful. You may need to back track or ask others if you are unsure about any details relating to your accident, but it is imperative to get this right first time.
The accident should have taken place within the last three years, if it has been longer than this; it is unlikely Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you with your compensation claim.
No Medical Attention
As part of the compensation claim, you should have received medical attention and have records to back this up. If you haven’t sustained an injury which required you to seek medical assistance, you may end up with an unsuccessful claim. It is important to keep a copy of any medical records if you have had to seek assistance for your injuries.
