Claiming compensation and the easy thing to do?
Staking your claim for compensation for personal injuries you have received is a process of legal action; some cases are straightforward with our expert lawyer in Helmsdale resolving them successfully on claimants behalf quickly.
Other cases, however, are far more complex, taking longer to resolve successfully. Here our lawyer in Helmsdale points out a few factors that could aid your compensation case:
This is where the defendant – the person or company against whom you are seeking compensation – either accepts they were responsible for the accident that caused you injuries or, as can happen, they dispute the case. In these circumstances, the case will go to court with a judge passing their judgement; they can either agree with the defendant or side with you, setting the compensation amount that must be paid to you.
This of course, means that your claim for compensation will end up in the court system. Many claimants worry about this but as our lawyer in Helmsdale will tell you, this is rare with only really complex or disputed cases ending their journey here.
Lack of information
Occasionally, claimants approach us here at AAH for legal help with their compensation claim but the details they supply us are sketchy or pieces of key information is missing. Likewise, evidence might also be scarce. We find this is usually as a direct result of claimants leaving the making of a compensation claim later than usual.
Although there is a 3 year opportunity gap in which you can make a claim, we suggest and strongly advise that you begin the compensation journey sooner rather than later! Time inevitably fogs the memory and you may find that your case is not as straightforward and as simple as you would want it to be.
There has been a lot of criticism in the media lately regarding the nature and the amount of compensation claims for some types of injury. Many people are of the opinions that claiming compensation for less than substantial injuries is ‘too easy’; for example, many people think that whiplash instantly secures you a £2000 pay-out!
Our expert lawyer in Helmsdale will tell you that this has never been the case with Accident Advice Helpline. Our robust assessment procedures mean that anyone economical with the truth may find their case is either not eligible or is not successful.
