Shotton personal injury claims can sometimes be a little intimidating. However, a little knowledge can go a long way which is why if you have some idea about what you need to expect you’ll be armed and ready for the future. In this article, we tell you about some of the things you may not already know about which are worth taking account of.
Making Shotton personal injury claims
The first somewhat difficult issue is in paying for personal injury claims. This has changed in recent years. The removal of legal aid meant the government introduced the idea of no win no fee* to ensure that you had some financial protection when making a claim. For a while there was a pleasant situation in which the client paid pretty much nothing no matter what happened as lawyers were permitted to claim their success fees from the other side. However, that does not apply any more. These days if you want to claim compensation you’ll have pay if you win, which means in most cases you’ll part with about 25% of your compensation claim.
Proving your case
When you claim compensation you’re dealing with the legal system which means you’ll have to prove to the full satisfaction of the court, that the other side was at fault. If you can’t do this then you won’t be able to claim. The principle of innocent until proven guilty holds sway in British court rooms so if it ends up being their words against yours then the chances are you’ll be unlucky.
Going to court
Nobody likes the thought of going to court which is why you may be relieved to know that in most cases you won’t have to. The other side will be making their own assessments of their chances and if they don’t think they have a good prospect of winning, they will try to settle out of court. This is damage limitation from their point of view which means you’ll have a decision to make. Either you choose to press on with a case, or you quit while you’re ahead and cash out now. In deciding that it’s helpful to have a claims estimate. This may not be 100% accurate but it will give you an idea what to expect from any claim.
