Every year in Rugby, personal injury claims are made by people who have been in an accident that wasn’t their fault. The trouble is that many people are not getting the full justice they deserve. That’s partly because they don’t know enough about the process and make various mistakes, but it’s also because of some individuals and organisations who are out for their own interests rather than your own. In this article, we’ll tell you what to look out for to ensure you don’t end up missing out on compensation to which you could have been entitled.
Making Rugby personal injury claims
When you’ve been injured, you may find yourself inundated with all sorts of challenges and problems – so much so that it can seem impossible to keep on top of them all. This can leave you vulnerable to people who will seek to take advantage of your situation.
Of these the most dangerous are the insurance companies. In most situations, they will be the ones tasked with paying out compensation if it is due, so they have a natural interest in reducing the amount they pay. As such they may make you an offer which seems too good to refuse. This holds out the chance of quick money now, rather than uncertain amounts at the end of a long and drawn-out legal battle. Small wonder some people take this.
However, when there is a case looming, the insurance company may carry out their own legal assessment of the situation and if they think they are going to lose they will come up with a way to minimise the financial impact. Going to court can be expensive so they naturally want to avoid this, but they will also try to get away with what they can. For this reason they may offer a very low amount in the hope that you take it.
If you were to consult a qualified law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline, we’d be able to help you decide if any offer is realistic or not. If you do then want to go to court, we’d also supply you with a lawyer who would give you the best possible chance of a successful outcome.
