When people are injured they often choose the easy option. Their insurance company often provides the option of claiming compensation through them. However they will not have your best interests at heart. Insurance firms often work in tandem with personal injury firms and they are paid commission for every new piece of custom they can send your way. While your insurance firm may well be reputable and honest they may not be the best firm for your requirements.
Claiming too soon
When you’re injured it’s tempting to get compensation as soon as possible. However if you start a claim before you have recovered from your injuries then you may find yourself under claiming significantly.
That’s because any compensation arrangement will be based on an estimate of your recovery. If you take longer to get back on your feet you will have been under compensated as a result.
Cashing out too early
In the majority of cases you won’t have to go to court. This is because most claims are settled out of court. However when the other side comes back with a settlement offer it’s important to think about their motivations for doing so. They are looking to get away with paying as little as they possibly can so they will try to get you to accept a much lower offer than you should actually have received.
To help you assess how much you should receive with your compensation claim it is a good idea to get a compensation estimate. We can do this for you through our 30 second test. This is a great opportunity for you to find out roughly how much you should be able to make a claim. It’s only a rough guide, but it is something which you can use to set expectation levels as you move forward with your claim.
Don’t pay too much
North Warwickshire accident claim solicitors can be expensive and many people make claims without being fully aware of how much it will cost. That’s because most claims are made as a proportion of a compensation arrangement so it’s easy to ignore how much compensation you will actually be paying out. However, different firms will charge different amounts so it’s a good idea to check how much this will be.
