    Compensation in Kingston Upon Thames

    Every year, hundreds of people claim compensation in Kingston upon Thames after an accident that was not their fault, but what you may not realise is that many of them fail to receive the full amount of compensation to which they should be entitled. For this reason, we’ve put together this guide to make sure you receive full bang for your buck.

    It’s not just about winning

    Someone once said it’s not just the winning that counts which is true to an extent – it’s also how much by. There are many people who make claims for compensation in Kingston upon Thames who walk away thinking they have won their case, but in truth it’s the other side celebrating because they understand that they could have been liable for much more.

    Here’s an example of when you might have been underpaid. Let’s say you’ve been hurt in an accident and the other side comes back with a settlement offer. This seems better than you could have hoped for. Not only have you won your case but it is over and done with much more quickly than you could have ever dreamed.

    But, hold your horses. It’s not time to celebrate just yet. The chances are that the other side will have made an offer which is significantly lower than the true amount they should be paying out. This is because they want to get away as cheaply as possible and they’re testing the waters by making an offer which is far below that which you should be paid.

    Estimating your compensation

    So if you’re claiming compensation in Kingston upon Thames it is helpful to have a goal in mind and that is something we can do at Accident Advice Helpline. We offer something called a 30 second test which is a quick estimate of your possible compensation settlement. This tells us how much we think your claim is worth and what you should be awarded. You can use it as a guide and it really comes into its own when deciding whether or not to claim.

    In making this estimate it’s important to have as much information about the extent of your injuries as it is this which could be pivotal to your chances of winning. Compensation is calculated based on the severity of the injury so sometimes it’s worth having another medical assessment to get a full idea of what those injuries might be.

    Paying for compensation in Kingston upon Thames

    So, once you’ve got an idea of your compensation settlement, how do you make sure that you can afford to pay for compensation in Kingston upon Thames. The best way to do this is to work on the basis of ‘no win, no fee’. This means that if you lose your case you will not have to pay.
