You would have thought that every single person who was involved in any type of accident would immediately start working out if they might be able to squeeze some money out of the situation, if you listened to personal injury industry naysayers bang on about the UK’s “out-of control-compensation culture”. Open the pages of any right-leaning newspaper, and you could be forgiven for thinking that the world and his dog are trying to blag a compensation payout from one person or another.
If this is the case, you might be surprised to learn that only 25% of people who might stand a chance of winning a personal injury payout after being hurt in an accident that was not their fault actually go on to make a claim. According to a YouGov poll carried out in July 2014, only a quarter of those injured in accidents went to the trouble of seeking the advice of a law firm, with a view to suing the party that was responsible for them being hurt.
Why you should take personal injury action
Respondents to the poll who did not take any personal injury action after being involved in an accident that was not their fault gave a number of reasons as to why they failed to do so. These ranged from just not believing in claiming compensation after being involved in an accident, to lacking confidence that their case was strong enough.
If you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault, and believe that you should be able to seek recompense for your suffering from the negligent party that was responsible for you being hurt, don’t be put off by doubts about the strength of your case. If you’re not a personal injury lawyer yourself, how would you know for sure?
The best thing you’ll be able to do if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, and would like to look into the possibility of taking some form of action against a negligent party, would be to talk with a top 100% no win no fee law firm about your situation.
