The reason people make Manchester personal injury claims varies from claimant to claimant. The reasons are often deeply personal, but ultimately there are some similarities.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we decided to ask one of our Manchester personal injury claims solicitors to give us their thoughts on why people decide to make claims.
For many people making is all about recovering money they may have lost as a result of their accident. Very few people make claims simply to receive money as a result of their injuries. After all, no amount of money is going to change the fact that you have been injured.
For some people they are forced to take time off from work following their accident. This time may be spent recovering from their injuries, or attending medical appointments. Depending on the severity of the accident they have been involved in, this time can be anything from one day to a few months.
If this time away from work is unpaid, or paid at a lower rate than their usual wage then these people are going to be negatively affected as a result of their accident. This is usually the reason why many people decide to make Manchester personal injury claims. Concerns over the ability to pay regular household bills, or even buy food in can be a real concern which can in turn cause further complications and exacerbate the healing process.
Equally, for those who have suffered serious injuries which are likely to have an on-going impact on their health and ability to work in the future, making Manchester personal injury claims may be the best way for them to secure their future financial wellbeing.
Over the years we have worked with clients who have had to give up work early as a result of their injuries, taking early retirement on medical grounds. This has a significant impact on their original financial plans and this is often taken into account when claims are being assessed and compensation is being decided upon.
Sense of right
For other individuals Manchester personal injury claims offer the chance to get justice, or fulfil a sense of “rightness”.
When you bring a claim to the attention of the courts, and someone else is shown to be legally liable for your accident that can help bring a sense of closure. While financial compensation is often not unwelcome, for these people it is not the overriding factor when deciding to make a claim.
