Should you make a no win no fee* accident claim against a friend?
If you have been involved in a serious accident, that was caused by a friend, then you need to think carefully before you make a Maldon, no win no fee* accident claim against them. Although the money from a compensation claim will be fantastic for helping you to move forward with your life, helping to keep you afloat financially as well as to get a sense of closure about what has happened, it may damage your relationship with your friend irreparably.
Even if you are very angry at the time, you should consider how long you are likely to be angry for, and then if it is worth making the claim.
- How much do you need the money? If you are making a compensation claim for the sake of it, because you think that you probably will be able to, then this may not be worth losing a friend over. If you have the finances and so on to keep yourself afloat following your injury, then you might not want to risk it.
- How close is your friend? Do remember that if you make a compensation claim against them, you are essentially taking money straight out of their pocket. If they are not willing to do this already then they are going to be upset about this. If this is a very close friend, think about whether you could cope with losing them as a friend.
- How bad were your injuries? If you have suffered extremely serious injuries then making a compensation claim might be the only way for you to cope with what has happened to you. Compensation can pay for private medical care and so on, offering you an easier way to cope.
- What are your motives for the claim? If you are making a compensation claim against your friend because you are angry, this is a bad reason, and you should wait and calm down before you continue with the claim.
