If you’ve found yourself on this page then we might safely assume you’re in the early stages of looking to claim compensation in Erewash. At this point in proceedings, you’re probably focusing mostly on building up your own knowledge, so you can make better decisions about how to take the claim forward. If so there is one thing you should focus on more than anything else – getting the full amount of compensation for your claim. When you need legal representation in Erewash, at Accident Advice Helpline we’re happy to help.
Every year, the courts in the UK deal with countless claims for compensation of one form or another. However, what often goes unreported that much of the compensation which is awarded actually represents a significant underpayment. More often than not the reason for this is that you or your lawyer has not made the case well enough.
A lack of information
One of the most common reasons that you fall short is a lack of information. Any claim for compensation is only as effective as the information supplied.
You’ll need to tell your lawyer not only about the circumstances of the accident and any evidence you have, but also about the consequences to you and any injuries you have suffered. This is the only way you’ll be truly able to get full justice for your claim.
People often under estimate their injuries. For example, people may not report any psychological effects such as sleeplessness or depression which could have been brought on by the accident. Proving these effects may prove to be a little tricky, but that’s no reason hold back. Give as much detail to your lawyers as possible. They will decide what is and what isn’t relevant.
Remember: it’s always better to give too much information than not quite enough. Your lawyers and any doctors you consult will be able to decide what is and is not relevant.
It’s also a good idea to get as accurate a prognosis as possible about your recovery. If you’re expected to be back on your feet in eight months and claim compensation on that basis then you will be paid on the basis of eight months injured. If it takes longer you’ll have ended up being significantly underpaid which can lead to all sorts of financial problems a little further down the line.
