When you make a compensation claim, you are becoming involved in a legal process put in place to protect those who have suffered through no fault of their own at the hands of others. Being involved in an accident does not, for many people, end there. Many injuries can take months to heal, and if you are left unable to work you will find that your bills soon mount up.
If you have been thinking of making a compensation claim, then you will need the services of the best personal injury solicitor available. Choosing one may not be easy, so you need to work with a legal firm that has experience in the personal injury field, and who are easy to contact at any time.
Help yourself out
Most people, although they do not like to admit it, have debts. It is a fact that there are few UK residents who are debt-free. Even an overdraft is classed as a debt, as it is money that can be repaid on demand. More major debts are credit card bills, loans and car finance.
Suffering an accident can make the situation ten times worse, as there will be no income to cover the monthly payments. An accident victim should never feel as if they are in a hopeless situation. A compensation claim can help you back onto your feet following an accident.
Don’t let worries about money put you off
If the fear of cost is preventing you from making a compensation claim, then you should speak to someone immediately and get some no-obligation advice. Many legal advisers will be able to provide their services on a no win no fee basis. This means that you do not have to pay sums of money upfront.
Don’t rely on compensation to bail you out
It never pays to rely on your potential compensation payout to bail you out of a tight situation. What you should do is try to cope as best you can while you are unable to work. Make sure you ask for advice on any benefits you may be entitled to claim. Speak to your creditors and explain the situation; offer to make payments as a reduced rate. Most companies will offer to help; if they do not, contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau and discuss how to proceed.
Your priority debts should always be your mortgage, gas and electricity bills. Council tax also rates highly on the list. Speaking to people who are experts in debt management always helps, and there are government-backed helplines that can hold your hand while you are getting back to work.
