    Compensation claims help in the UK

    If you have been in an accident, there are many things that you may be tempted to do that can actually hurt your claim. Below are some of the mistakes that you should avoid making when you are looking for compensation claims help UK.

    Saying you weren’t at fault – or saying you were at fault – is a bad idea

    One of the biggest mistakes that people make when they have been in an accident is saying that they either were at fault or that they weren’t at fault.  Either one of these can make a big difference when someone is going to try and make a claim later. Make sure that you are telling just the fact as you know them from your point of view. Anything that is speculation may hurt your case later.

    Accepting the amount offered immediately is a bad idea

    Another big mistake that people make when they have been in an accident is accepting the money that is offered by an insurance company. This is especially true when you don’t know what your injuries are or how much damage is done to your car. It’s better to consult with a solicitor to find out what they say about the settlement amount and whether or not it’s fair. Otherwise you may be selling yourself short and not getting what you deserve.

    Signing waivers is a bad idea according to those who advise on compensation claims help in the UK

    A lot of companies who sell car insurance are going to pressure you into signing waivers which state you’ll accept a certain amount and that you’re not going to go to court. The money that you are going to be offered after signing the waiver likely won’t be enough to cover your expenses and you will likely regret it afterwards. Don’t’ agree to sign anything until you have some legal advice. Most of the time the waiver’s not going to be in your best interest and you’ll find yourself regretting the decision later. Take time to consult with a solicitor and see what they suggest that you do.

    Don’t talk about your accident online

    The last thing that you want to do is to talk about your accident online with your friends, especially on Facebook or Twitter. The truth is that the things that you say about it online can actually hurt you if the defendant finds out about them. So don’t talk about it online, otherwise you may hurt your claim before you even file it.
