Many people suffer accidents every day and a large number do nothing about it. It is a little-known fact that two and a half million people in the United Kingdom suffer accidents every year through no fault of their own and that only a third actually claim compensation.
If you have suffered an accident then don’t become just another statistic if you want to make a compensation claim and need to speak to the injury solicitors then having a little understanding of compensation claims may help.
Compensation claim facts you may not know
Some other little-known facts about compensation claims are:
- As little as six percent of the British population understand their legal rights to make a compensation claim.
- Around nineteen percent of accident sufferers would have no idea how to start a claim and who to speak to.
- The simple act of making a claim could potentially highlight a dangerous situation that may put others at risk.
- During 2009/10 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. You are far from alone.
You have a right to make a claim
Many people injured in accidents that were not their fault do not understand their rights under law and are often afraid to make a claim, because they feel 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 you a lot of money
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.
