For all the information that you can find about personal injury claims on the internet it’s surprising that people still continue to make basic errors when assessing their cases. For this reason, if you’re looking to claim spinal injury compensation in Lambeth, it’s a good idea to take note of this quick guide on the common misconceptions that reduce people’s chances of making a successful case.
It’ll be easy
The law surrounding personal injury claims is very simple, so that means any claim should be straight forward right?
Wrong. Every claim brings with it some complications even the most simple ones which are over in a few weeks.
These complications can revolve around making sure there is enough evidence to support your case, to working out how much compensation is appropriate. Therefore it’s important to make sure you have as much information as possible about both the claim and your injuries.
For the claim you should look at things such as photos of the scene and witness statements which can all prove very useful further down the line.
For the injuries you should have at least one medical report and ensure that all the various issues you might experience have been accounted for. By doing this you’ll improve your chances of getting the full amount of compensation for your accident.
You’ll have to go to court
Nobody likes the thought of going to court, and the good news here is that in most cases you won’t have to. The process of going through a court case is expensive so if the other side thinks they have no chance of winning they will bail out as early as possible. This minimises the amount they have to pay out. If you receive a settlement offer it will then be down to you to decide whether or not you want to accept this or hold out for something more.
It’ll be too expensive
When claiming spinal injury compensation in Lambeth many people are put off the idea by the fear that it’ll be too expensive. In truth this needn’t be a cause for concern as many firms now offer ‘no win, no fee’.
This means that you won’t have to pay unless you win your case and it can be a crucial element in giving people reassurance that they’re not risking their own financial futures when considering a claim.
It’s important, though, to also look at how much you will pay in the event that you are successful as this could come back to haunt you. Some firms will use ‘no win, no fee’ as an excuse to pump up their success fees, which means they’re offsetting their losses by penalising those who are successful.
