If you are making an injury compensation claim in Tredegar against a friend or your employer, you have to accept that this probably won’t go down very well with anyone involved. Even if the person you are making the claim against was obviously at fault for the accident, and can understand that you were badly injured because of it, no one wants to pay out a large amount of compensation for something that they didn’t do on purpose, and if they haven’t offered you compensation already then they clearly don’t want to give it to you.
For this reason, making a claim can be upsetting for both you and the other person, and can be seriously damaging to your relationship. Here are some ways to try to keep the relationship together.
- Let the other person know what you are planning to do. You shouldn’t let anyone find out that a claim is being made against them when they receive a letter from a lawyer. They are likely to be much more angry with you if this is how you let them find out, than if you were upfront and told them the truth right away.
- Let them know why you are doing this. Another reason people get so upset about having a claim made against them is because they don’t understand why this is happening. You should explain to this person why you want the compensation, and why you have gone this route to get it. It will help if you have previously had a conversation about compensation where they have refused.
- Try to remain normal. This is as much up to them as you, but on your side you can work on trying to keep your relationship normal and as much the same as it always was. It is then up to the other person to fall into place if they want to keep a relationship with you.
