If you’ve been involved in an accident that was not your fault that came about as a result of the negligence of a business or local authority, you might find that you are offered some form of compensation immediately. You would be very wise indeed to think long and hard before accepting this. If you’d like to find out how much you should be entitled to, you can use our personal injury claim calculator in North Hertfordshire, but in circumstances such as these, you really will be best off seeking the advice of a solicitor at Accident Advice Helpline.
Compensation offers and our personal injury claim calculator in North Hertfordshire
Sometimes, a company or local authority might make an offer of compensation before the subject is even broached by the victim. It will be rare that this will be intended as a genuine effort to make sure the victim receives justice. It may be the case that a low amount of compensation is offered in the hope that this will ward off action that might result in a larger amount being awarded.
As such, you should always seek the advice of a top 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitor before accepting any such offer. If the company or authority concerned attempts to bully you into accepting the offer within a certain timeframe, alarm bells should really start ringing.
You might well be tempted to take what’s on offer, but it will be worth bearing in mind that a couple of hundred pounds might later look like a very poor deal indeed if you later find out that you might have won many thousands if you had taken your case to court. Hold your nerve and seek advice to make sure somebody isn’t trying to pull the wool over your eyes and rip you off. If you accept an offer of compensation, it might affect your chances of making a claim at a later date.
