There are types of accident claims that you can make without a lawyer in Llanfyllin, and should be fairly easy to put through an insurance company or even through the court on your own. Not wanting to have any of their compensation have to go to c lawyer, some people may feel more comfortable making a claim on their own. However, if you don’t use a lawyer to make your claim, it is all too easy to make mistakes which will either cost you some of your compensation money, or all of it. Here are some of the more common mistakes people make when they don’t work with a lawyer.
Asking for too much or too little
The problem is, if you aren’t working with a lawyer and have no experience of compensation claims, you just aren’t likely to know how much you should be asking for as a result of your accident and injury. If you ask for too little then this is exactly what you will get, whilst if you ask for too much you may find that your claim is unsuccessful or that you are argued down for a long time to try to get to a more suitable amount.
Settling before a final diagnosis
In some cases a company or individual will offer you a certain amount of compensation right off the bat, which can seem like a blessing as it means that you can just take the money and run! However, if you settle before your final diagnosis from the doctor, you won’t know what the full extent of your injuries are. If you find that your injuries are much worse than you first thought, and are likely to affect your life in a much worse way, you can’t go back and ask for more money as you have already settled.
