Whether you consider it Surrey or South London, Croydon is a large town and borough – highly populated, with plenty of offices, shops, roads and entertainment opportunities.
Given all this, there is also the potential for accidents to happen. Sometimes, accidents can be caused by someone else, and result in you being injured.
When this happens, expert personal injury solicitors in Croydon can take on your case with the aim of securing you a payment of compensation. Read on for more information!
Why claim compensation for personal injury?
Even though claims through expert personal injury solicitors in Croydon are in the public’s consciousness, actually making a claim is something that doesn’t always occur to people, if they find themselves in an accident that causes them an injury.
Why? Some people are unaware that they may be eligible to claim. They may see adverts on the television that illustrate personal injury with slips and falls, accidents at work, and nothing else. Their own injury may have been sustained in a car accident but they don’t realise that expert personal injury solicitors in Croydon could help them, too.
Alternatively, some people think that there is something wrong about claiming.
Why it is OK to make a claim
Some worry that claiming will put the other party into severe hardship, or – if it is their employer against whom they are claiming – lead to repercussions.
Others think that, by claiming, they are getting something for nothing, so they don’t pursue a claim.
The truth is, no repercussions would be felt, because an employer is not allowed to treat you any differently if you make a claim. Also, no great hardship would befall the other party, because insurance companies pay out, rather than the person themselves.
As for getting something for nothing, consider all the expenses you are having to deal with since you got injured. Prescription charges, taxi fares and home help fees all mount up – and you may also be off work, losing your income as a result. All this stress, purely because someone did something (or failed to do something) and you got injured!
