Why do so many sufferers of a whiplash injury in Fleet Hargate fail to claim?
Did you know that approximately seventy per cent of personal injury victims never claim the compensation they are entitled to?
This is a truly shocking statistic when you put it into perspective. It means that only every three in ten people get the money they deserve! Why is this the case? Are so many solicitors failing to make successful cases? Definitely not! In fact, most people never even make a claim. Why? Well, let’s take a look at the main reasons why so many sufferers of a whiplash injury in Fleet Hargate fail to claim…
They think it will be too much hassle
First and foremost, one of the main reasons why people fail to claim for a whiplash injury in Fleet Hargate is because they think it will be too much hassle. They are worried about an extremely segmented process and having to go to court. However, in the vast majority of cases they never actually do.
They do not have enough money to begin a claim
One of the major hurdles that gets in the way is accumulating the funds necessary to make a personal injury claim. If you go for a no win no fee service you will not require any cash to start your claim.
They did not see a doctor for their whiplash injury in Fleet Hargate
This is something that often happens in whiplash cases. After all, whiplash (in a lot of case) tends to be a minor injury. Because of this, a lot of people think they can cope with the symptoms themselves. However, if you do this you will not be able to claim as there will be no proof that you have even suffered from whiplash.
Financial implications if the case is not successful
This is undoubtedly one of the main reasons why personal injury sufferers never make a claim. They are worried that they could end up spending tons of money on essentially nothing if their case proves to be unsuccessful. This is where a no win no fee service comes in. Financial risk is eliminated. At Accident Advice all our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis!
They run out of time
Last but not least, a lot of people do not realise that there is a time limit when it comes to making a claim for whiplash. Generally, you only have three years to make a claim. So don’t delay!
