So, you’re looking for Pontarddulais accident claim lawyers, but before you start your search it’s important to think about some of the things which could affect the amount of compensation you might be awarded.
Pontarddulais accident claim lawyers
Every year thousands of people make personal injury claims around the country. The majority are settled out of court, most of the others are settled in the small claims court while a few are more complicated and can last for several years. These are the serious claims which can entail extremely large payments such as the £2 million recently paid to a man in Northern Ireland who was injured on a building site. However, the one thing these have in common is that many of those who won their case may have only received a fraction of the compensation to which they were entitled.
Getting full justice
There are a number of things which can harm your chances of getting the full amount of compensation. Many people make the mistake of settling a compensation claim too early. It’s understandable to want money to be paid as quickly as possible, but if you accept an offer without thinking things through there is a very good chance that you might end up under claiming.
Having a medical assessment
One of the things we often suggest to people when they come to us is to get a medical assessment. This can be useful even if they have already been treated as the more information you have about an injury the greater the chance that you’ll have everything you need to know about how bad your injuries are.
One area that people often miss is psychological problems. However these can sometimes have as big an impact on people’s lifestyle and wellbeing as the physical problems they are facing. Mental issues are a lot more difficult to assess than physical injuries, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t at least try.
In the end the big rule is that you should always share any information that you have. If it’s not relevant then we can always tell you to disregard it, but what we can’t do is take account of things which you don’t tell us about. We are only as good as the information you provide.
