If you’ve arrived at this page then it’s not a leap of the imagination to assume that you’re looking for an Aylesbury Vale law firm. But before you make a final decision, it’s a good idea to warn you of certain things which could see you claiming less than you deserve in terms of compensation.
Finding an Aylesbury Vale law firm
Every year there are thousands of personal injury claims, but what often goes unreported is that many of them do not actually receive the full amount of compensation to which they should have been entitled. This is because they may miss things which could have helped them in making a claim.
To illustrate this let’s look at what goes into assessing how much someone should be paid in compensation.
The courts will look at a number of factors including the severity of the injury with more severe injuries naturally counting for more compensation. They will also look at any expenses you may have incurred as a result of your injuries. These might include things such as medical fees for treatments not covered by the NHS or travel expenses.
They will also look at what income you have lost out on as a result of your claim. This could include things such as time off work, which includes anything you’ve lost out on in the run up to the claim and anything you are likely to miss out on in the future.
Getting the most out of your claim
The key to getting the full amount of compensation to which you should be entitled is demonstrating just what you’ve lost out on and where. One thing that often restricts the amount of compensation people get is that they miss certain issues.
It’s all too easy for an early diagnosis to miss things, especially in terms of psychological issues. These will all count towards the compensation claim and not taking them into account can harm your chances. For this reason we often organise a follow up medical assessment so people can get a clear idea of how much compensation they might be entitled to.
Going too early
Many people also make the mistake of claiming before they have recovered. This is understandable because you may want the money as quickly as possible to avoid any short term financial worries, but this can also be counter-productive.
For this reason it’s always a good idea to make sure that you have all the facts at your disposal before claiming.
Paying for compensation
When looking for an Aylesbury Vale law firm you may also pay over the odds, which is why some people prefer to go for something such as no win no fee. This provides considerable cover in case you lose your case and can take the pressure off you.
