If you have had an accident which was the fault of another person, and feel that you are entitled to compensation, you should consider making a claim as soon as possible. You have up to three years to get your compensation claim processed and paid out, but many people find it easier to make the claim successfully if they get it started sooner rather than later.
Not only this, but personal injury lawyers find it easier to gather the evidence that they need earlier on. If you want to make a claim as soon as possible, here are some ways to cover the cost of claiming compensation in Wandsworth before you have gotten sick pay or benefits.
You may be able to borrow money from friends or family to pay your personal injury lawyer to make your compensation claim. However, you should only do this if you know for sure that you will be able to pay this person back even if your claim is not successful.
Try to find a lawyer who isn’t asking for an exorbitant fee, and who can offer you a reasonable amount of security that your claim is going to be successful.
Ask your employer for an advance
If your employer is offering you sick pay to keep you going through your sick leave, they may be happy to advance you some of this to help you to make a compensation claim, as long as they claim isn’t against them!
Explain to your lawyer the ways in which a successful compensation claim will help you to recover and get back to work.
