Making a personal injury claim is one of those things that people often think of as being fairly daunting, but this need not be the case. Indeed, by avoiding some of these simple errors you can find a solicitor in Narberth who can give you the very best chance of winning your case and securing the compensation to which you’re entitled.
Not thinking ahead
When you’ve suffered a serious injury it can be very tempting to be diverted by the day to day business of coping with your injury. This might involved adjusting your lifestyle or bringing in extra equipment to make life easier.
This can take your attention away from the pressing issue of whether or not you are entitled to compensation. This is a bit of a shame as it is this compensation which could prove important in helping you to get back on your feet as soon as is humanly possible.
In the UK there is a time limit of three years beyond which you will not be allowed to make a claim. Although this seems like a long time you would be surprised at how quickly it can slip by and it’s caught more than a few people out along the way.
Writing off your claim
Many people never even consider that they have a chance of making a personal injury claim. This is a shame because without it they may miss out on some crucial help and support which could make their life easier.
The best advice is that, no matter what you think, it doesn’t hurt to consult an expert. At Accident Advice Helpline you can do that entirely free of charge through our free 24 hour helpline.
Settling too soon
When you make a claim the other side may come along with the offer of a settlement. They do this because they may think that they don’t have a chance of winning and want to avoid the costs of a long court case.
However, this offer may often be significantly less than you would be entitled to if you pressed your case.
So it pays to make sure you have an estimate of your compensation to give you something to set realistic goals against. This is something we can do at Accident Advice Helpline through our free “30 second compensation calculator”.
