Are you considering making a personal injury claim? If you have been in an accident that was not your fault, sometime in the last three years, there is every chance that you will be entitled to compensation. However, 7 out of 10 people that have been eligible for compensation have never had the money they deserved, and this is because they haven’t made a claim to begin with.
For many years this was because people were just not aware of their rights, but with stricter laws regarding safety and media coverage, most people know the possibility is there, but still do not claim the compensation they could be due.
Why do innocent victims not make Mid Sussex claims?
There are several reasons given for this, some of the more common ones being:
- It’s too much trouble – A lot of people don’t make Mid Sussex claims because they concerned about all the paperwork, the legal bits frighten them, and they do not want to go to court. If they use Accident Advice Helpline this will not matter. We take all the hard work off your shoulders, and very few of our claimants have to attend court.
- They think they cannot afford it – this is a common misconception that goes back to the last century, before no win no fee was introduced. Now no money has to be paid to start a claim, and no legal fees paid if the claim is lost, so everyone can afford it.
- They leave it too late – when people know there is a three year time limit on making a claim, they often think they have plenty of time and will deal with it later. Three years passes by so quickly though, and before you know it the deadline has been missed.
- They are worried their employer will fire them – For those entitled to make Mid Sussex claims for an accident at work, some of them are concerned that they will lose their job because of it. If that should happen, the employer is leaving themselves open to an employment tribunal for unfair dismissal.
