Reasons for not claiming
This is sometimes the case when somebody wants to claim compensation because their accident has affected their mental well-being. There is no stigma, or shame in claiming for a psychological illness, and our West Sussex ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors have made many successful claims for stress, anxiety or depression brought about by a stressful or traumatic experience. If you are suffering from any of these you should seek help from your doctor, and when you are ready, seek compensation.
Not wanting to cause a fuss
If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have every right to claim compensation! Claiming compensation actually helps bring accident figures down, as it makes employers tighten up health and safety procedures, and councils keep their paving safe to walk on, road users more circumspect etc. So make a fuss!
If you want to claim against your employer, or a small/ medium business, but don’t want to hurt their profits don’t worry, as your compensation will be paid by their insurance company.
Not wanting to go to court
The vast majority of personal injury claims are actually settled out of court, as this keeps costs down for all of the parties involved. If your case does go to court, it will be heard in a civil court, and won’t be anywhere near as stressful as you might think. Our West Sussex ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors will do whatever they can to make the claim process as smooth and stress free as possible, and will endeavour to get your claim settled early.
This is sometimes the case when someone wants to sue their employer. Work-based claims are perhaps the most emotionally difficult, but again, you have been injured through no fault of your own, and you deserve your compensation. Please note, that you cannot be dismissed from your job because you are claiming compensation.
If you would like help and advice – or perhaps further reassurance about making an accident claim, then please call us on 0800 689 0500. Or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. Our advisers will happily give you all the help and support that you need, free from any obligation.
