Every year thousands of people suffer a serious injury in an accident, but many of them fail to claim the compensation they deserve. Recent stats suggest just a fraction of those who are eligible take legal action against the person, business or organisation responsible for their accident.
In this article we’ll show you the secret of finding no win, no fee* lawyers in South Lakeland – industry experts who can offer a genuinely useful service.
Fear of claiming
There is a narrative in the media that suggests we should be worried when we see a rise in personal injury claims. This was highlighted in a news piece which mentioned that although the number of car accidents was in decline generally, the number of personal injury claims taking place was actually on the up. The majority of these were for small injuries such as whiplash which, according to the piece, meant people were making claims when they were not seriously hurt. The insurance companies played their big card in deterring people from claiming, arguing that these new stats could push premiums up – the usual rhetoric designed to discourage victims.
But the truth is very different. A YouGov survey showed that only 20% of those who could make a claim had done so. The reasons varied but the most common was that people didn’t think they qualified for compensation. In many cases, this was because they considered their injuries to be too minor.
This can be dangerous for a number of reasons. Firstly, initial diagnosis can be wrong and people’s injuries can be far more serious than they may realise. Also, even comparatively minor injuries can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life.
