How to decide whether or not to make a no win no fee accident claim against a family member
You should be able to claim compensation from any person that has caused you to have a serious accident and sustain serious injuries. As long as you can prove that this person was behaving somewhat negligently, leading to your injuries, you have a good enough case to go to court with, and this should ensure that your claim is successful and you get the compensation you deserve.
Just because you can make a claim, though, doesn’t always mean that you should. If it is going to potentially ruin a relationship with someone, it might not be worth it and this is even more important to think about if you have been injured by a family member.
- Speak to your family member. You should let them know that you are struggling with what has happened and the financial implications of this. If they are able to offer you any help or money of any description there and then, you might not need to make a compensation claim at all. Otherwise, this may help them to understand why you are doing what you are doing.
- Work out how badly you need the money. If your family member is not willing to give you any money, you should decide how necessary this money is to your recovery and your life when it comes to staying afloat during this time. If it really is necessary, you don’t really have a choice.
- Decide if you can handle the process. Even with an injury lawyer working on your behalf, getting compensation can be a long and drawn out process, and one that isn’t easy on anyone. You have to decide whether or not you are comfortable making a claim before you move forward.
- Try to find a lawyer. You will have more luck speaking directly to a lawyer about what you want to do, to help you to decide whether or not to move forward with a claim.
