Some people who have been injured as the result of an accident which was not their fault decide that they do not want to make a claim for compensation to cover their personal injury.
Other people think they would like to make a claim, because they understand that they would be eligible to make one under the circumstances but remain dubious about doing so. Our lawyers have vast experience of speaking to, and working with people who are unsure about making a claim.
One of the biggest reasons, and the most common one that our injury lawyers in Chichester hear, as to why people who have had an accident which wasn’t their fault decide not to make a compensation claim is because they have heard many myths regarding accident compensation.
It is pointless to deny that there are myths surrounding the compensation claims’ legal process simply because people have heard only half a story and don’t know all of the facts. If you want to find out more about the real story, then you should speak to an injury lawyer in Chichester today.
Over Eagerness to Make Claims
Some people argue that workers are becoming too eager when it comes to seeking the advice of an injury lawyer in Chichester and making a claim. Figures obtained by the TUC do not support this, and in fact show that approximately only 10% of people who do have the right to make a compensation claim for personal injury decide not to, for various reasons.
Insurance is a drain on businesses
Your injury lawyer in Chichester will be aware that insurance premiums have risen in recent times (whether this be employers’ liability or car insurance) but there is absolutely no evidence to link this rise with injury claims and the work done by an injury lawyer in Chichester. It is more likely attributable to a rising rate of inflation.
