Staffordshire Moorlands no win no fee* compensation claims
Critics of personal injury claims point to reports which show that the number of road traffic accidents has remained stable or fallen very slightly over the past few years, but the number of claims has risen. The majority of these are for relatively minor injuries such as whiplash which although intensely unpleasant is not going to threaten your life.
However, what these statistics show is that people are simply getting access to better information than used to be the case. Although whiplash may not be as severe as a broken bone it can still have a significant impact on your quality of life. In particular, if you’re injured in an accident you may not be able to work which will have a significant impact on your finances if your boss decides to use this as an excuse to try and cut back your pay. As such some form of compensation will be appropriate to make up for the money you have lost.
Getting good advice
A more relevant statistic comes from a 2012 report from YouGov which states that the vast majority of people are not making claims when they have a right to. It found that 20% of people who were in an accident which could qualify for compensation were actually making a claim. The reason they did not do so is that they mistakenly believed that their accident was not severe enough to warrant a personal injury claim. If more people are claiming, then it’s only a result of better information.
