If you have been through the difficult and sometimes emotional experience of a personal injury, you will be in no rush to exacerbate your stress levels. For some, the thought of making a compensation claim is off-putting, as they feel the process will be unpleasant and tiresome. However, there are ways to make easy claims that will compensate you for your injuries with minimum fuss and effort for you.
Why claim for compensation?
If you have been hesitant about making a claim, it is important to think about the reasons why compensation is in place, and why it is your right to make a claim if your accident fulfils certain criteria. If your accident was someone else’s fault, happened within the past three years and resulted in the need for medical attention, you will likely be entitled to claim for compensation.
The compensation process is in place to ensure that you are protected as far as possible following an accident – aside from the physical and psychological difficulties you have incurred, your injury may have had a monetary impact, such as medical expenses or loss of earnings. The severity of your injury and prognosis is also a key factor when determining your compensation entitlement.
Making a claim for compensation may also result in preventative measures being put in place to ensure that others are not exposed to the same risks that caused your accident. Whether that is more training in your workplace, maintenance on a poor section of road or an extra handrail on a steep staircase, compensation can be very worthwhile in the long run.
But if you do wish to pursue your right to compensation and are eligible, are easy claims possible?
