According to various studies, not everyone who could be entitled to claim compensation ever does so. That’s often because they don’t believe that their injuries are included as part of personal injury law. However, the truth is that you may well be able to claim compensation – the only way to find out is to speak to an expert. This article will outline some of those issues that often go unclaimed and how you can find Northampton accident claim solicitors.

The main reason why some people neglect to make a claim can often be because they simply do not think their injury is bad enough to warrant a claim. For instance, someone who has received an injury such as whiplash may not think it’s bad enough to claim compensation. However the law states that if an injury was bad enough to have a negative effect on your quality of life then you should be able to claim compensation as a result. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself if you required medical attention as a result of your injuries. If not then it’s unlikely that we will be in a position to help you, but if so we may well be able to help you make a claim.
Long term conditions
Other people do not claim because their conditions are more long term. Let’s say you work in a factor and all that time working amidst loud noises has damaged your hearing. You may assume that you’re not entitled to that much compensation, but you’d be mistaken.
Industrial deafness is a recognised condition and it may be the result of negligence on the part of your employer.

They will be able to help you analyse your claim and to press ahead with any attempt for compensation.
We do not understand mental illness as much as physical issues which means many people suffer in silence. It’s either because they do not think the condition has anything to do with the accident or they are not willing to talk about.

If nothing else, this could be an opportunity to get the professional psychological help you need.
