    Help to claim compensation in Lincoln

    As one of the leading personal injury law firms in the country we’ve seen countless claims over the years, and if there’s one thing that frustrates us more than anything it’s the silly mistakes people make which reduce their chances of a successful claim. So, if you need help to claim compensation in Lincoln, here are some basic mistakes you’ll need to avoid.

    Not Choosing a Lawyer

    It might seem simple, but many people do not even consult a qualified personal injury lawyer. Instead they accept an offer from their insurance company to process the compensation claim.

    As easy as this sounds, the chances are you won’t receive the full amount of compensation for your accident that you deserve. Insurance firms are looking to process this quickly and move onto the next thing, and they do not possess the experience of personal injury law that an expert will bring.

    Some people are also duped by claims management firms which let you think they are law firms. They will do nothing more than take your details and pass them onto another law firm. You will probably have no idea who is running your claim and what the payment terms are which can leave you open to those firms who like to crank up the fees.

    Under Estimating Compensation

    Many people don’t report the full range of medical issues they are experiencing. These tend to include things such as psychological issues experienced after the accident. For example, if you’re getting flash backs, experiencing sleeplessness or depression there is a good chance that this will be counted as part of the compensation settlement.

    It’s often a good idea to have another medical assessment as other examinations can often miss important things. This is something we often do with our clients so we have a full picture of the injuries they have sustained and how this should be folded into any compensation claim.

    Settling Too Soon

    If you’re claiming compensation in Lincoln then there may be a natural temptation to take the fastest route to getting your money possible. Often this will come more quickly than you might imagine as the other side will come back with a settlement offer.

    The aim behind this is to minimise any damage caused by an accident claim and get out while the going is good, but early offers tend to be less than you could claim if you hold on.

    Paying for Compensation in Lincoln

    The last mistake is perhaps the easiest to remedy. If you’re claiming compensation in Lincoln, then you may well find yourself paying over the odds. That’s why it’s important to use no win no fee – as a way of protecting you in the event that your claim is unsuccessful.
