Compensation can be vital in helping you get what you deserve for your injuries. However, there are plenty of mistakes you can make along the way which could reduce the amount you receive, or even lead to your claim being dismissed altogether. So, before you go looking for solicitors in Tredegar, spend time to read about these common mistakes which can reduce your chances of success.
A lack of evidence
It is not just enough to be in the right. You need to be able to demonstrate that clearly and undeniably to the full satisfaction of the court. This means producing clear evidence which illustrates the merits of your case beyond any contest.
All too often, people make the mistake of not including nearly enough evidence in their claim. It can hurt them severely later in the process. An example of this could be falling over a broken paving slab in the street. Because this has not been repaired promptly by the council, you are entitled to claim compensation for the injury caused.
However, the chances are the broken slab will not stay that way forever, so it’s important to get a picture of the pavement while it is still broken. You should take a picture which shows the damage and where it has occurred clearly. If not, the damage will have been cleared away by the time the claim makes it to court. In this case it will simply be your word against theirs.
It’s worth pointing out however that most claims never get as far as the courthouse. They are settled beforehand.
Avoid working with the wrong solicitors in Tredegar
You wouldn’t ask a vet to check you out would you? So why would you go to a lawyer who has the wrong type of experience? Yes, they all went to law school and should know the basics, but that in itself might not be enough. There is a world of difference between making a claim for an injury in the workplace compared with claiming for a road traffic accident. The lesson there is to make sure you understand what lawyer can best help with your claim.
