There are a good number of people who suffer accidents and do nothing about it. It is a little known fact that around two and a half million people in the United Kingdom suffer accidents every year through no fault of their own; only one third of that figure actually claim compensation. It may seem astounding but it is a fact. If you have suffered an accident then don’t be a statistic. If you want to make a compensation claim and need an injury lawyer, Hildenborough will have a choice of firms that can help you.
Compensation claim facts
Some other little known facts about compensation claims are:
- Only six percent of the British population understand their legal rights to make a compensation claim.
- Nineteen percent of accident sufferers would have no idea how to start a claim and who to speak to.
- Making a claim can potentially highlight a dangerous situation that may put others at risk.
- In the year 2009 to 2010 over seventy eight thousand claims were made against employers; so if you have suffered an accident at work then don’t be afraid to speak up as you are far from alone.
Injury claim lawyer in Hildenborough- making a claim for compensation is your right
Many people who have been injured in accidents that were not their fault do not understand their rights under law and are often too afraid to make a claim feeling like a fraud or like some type of scammer. Being injured in an accident that was not your fault means that you are entitled, by law, to make a compensation claim. This is so that you can not only receive compensation for your injuries and any lost wages and expenses that have been created as a result; but also to bring to justice the people responsible and make them liable for their actions.
Making a claim does not have to cost the Earth
New legislation means that there is no longer legal aid available for accident victims but many solicitors offer a No win No fee policy that will mean that should you lose there will be no fees liable to be paid. If you should win you are expected to cover twenty five percent of the costs surrounding the case; of course this will come out of the overall payout you receive.
