    No win no fee lawyers in Sheffield

    According to recent figures one in four people have suffered a personal injury of some kind in the UK within the past five years, but of those only 20% ever go on to claim compensation. The reasons vary but the unavoidable conclusion to draw is that many people are missing out on the help and support to which they should be entitled. This article will examine why that is and offer you some pointers for finding no win no fee lawyers in Sheffield who can help you with your claim.

    Compensation culture

    The report entitled Personal Injury 2012 was carried out by YouGov and attempted to clarify public attitudes to personal injury claims. It found that the most common type of claims were road traffic accidents with workplace injuries following close behind. And while more people than you might have thought have suffered an injury of some kind only a small proportion of them (one in five) actually went on to make a claim.

    The most common reason for people declining to make a claim is that they did not deem their accident as being serious enough to warrant compensation, but that’s a self-defeating attitude for a number of reasons.

    First, even a small injury can have serious implications. The report noted a belief that there were too many claims for things such as whiplash which despite being highly unpleasant is not going to be life changing. However, if you’re forced off work or have to pay for physiotherapy to help get you back on your feet, then the effects can be serious.

    Also, it is always important to get a full medical assessment, because injuries may be more severe than you first thought. If you’re off work for longer than you initially expected you can find yourself getting into all sorts of financial trouble. An injury which you did not initially believe warranted a claim can almost demand some form of compensation.
