The feeling of getting justice can be sweet – unfortunately, these days it can be pretty expensive. If the government and insurance firms get their way, it could soon be the preserve of only the rich. For this reason, we’ve come up with this guide to ensure Rossendale Personal Injury Claims are kept affordable and open to everyone.
Making Rossendale Personal Injury Claims
The first hurdle to overcome is getting information, and this is where some people fall. According to statistics from YouGov, only 20% of the people who could claim compensation ever do so. This is because they do not understand that their claim could entitle them to make a claim. This flies in the face of what the insurance firms are trying to say, which is that it becomes too easy for people to make a claim – even if it has no merit.
For this reason, you should always spend time looking into the details of your injury. Call our helpline and speak to one of our advisors. They will be able to give you all the information you need, to help you decide on a way forward. If we do not think you have a good chance of winning, then we will say so. Although this may not be what you want to hear, it is better to bug out at this stage rather than waste time and money on a claim that has only a limited chance of success.
Making a claim
However, if we think you have a good chance of winning, then we can start working a way forward from there. We can look at your situation, work out what evidence is available and make sure we have a full understanding of the severity of your injuries.
This may involve going through another medical assessment. Getting a second opinion can be useful as there may well have been things that the original doctor missed when treating you. Also, time can change things, and injuries might develop over time that could mean you end up needing more compensation than you actually receive at the end of it.
In most cases, the course runs pretty smoothly, and the other side will offer a settlement offer pretty early on. This is because they will have analysed their prospects and will want to get out of it as early as possible.
Paying for a claim
However, if it does go to court, the case can be pretty expensive. This is why, if you are making a Rossendale Personal Injury Claim, it is a good idea to work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. This ensures that if you do not win your case you will not have to pay a single penny.
