Why make a claim?
Compensation is there for a reason – to protect you from personal injuries that have been incurred through no fault of your own. You may find yourself unable to work following your accident, requiring care from friends, family members or even a professional carer. Other financial expenses may also be needed, such as treatment costs, medication, or perhaps specialist equipment or modifications to your home (for example, if you now require use of a wheelchair following your accident). You should not be out of pocket as a result of an accident that was not your fault, and should be compensated for the difficult and often traumatic experience you have been through.
