Are you wondering whether to make a personal injury claim? If you have been in an accident that was not your fault, there is a very high chance that you will be entitled to compensation. However, there are many people that have been eligible for compensation yet never got the money they deserve and this is because they haven’t made a claim to begin with. Why? Let’s explore the reasons.
Making Worthing claims
- They don’t want to go through the hassle of making a claim – A lot of people don’t make Worthing claims because they don’t want to put themselves through the hassle of going to court. This is understandable, however, it is extremely unlikely that you will end up in the courtroom. It is in the interest of both parties to get everything wrapped up as quickly as possible. This is why less than three per cent of personal injury claims result in a trial.
- They don’t have the money to make a claim – There are many financial hurdles when it comes to making Worthing claims via the traditional channels. However, if you go for the services of a no-win no-fee solicitor these issues are eliminated. You won’t have to make a huge upfront payment to start the claim process, and risk is diminished dramatically, as you only need to pay legal fees if your case is a success.
- They leave it too late – A lot of people think they can make a compensation claim whenever they like. Unfortunately, this is not the case. There is actually a three-year time limit on all personal injury cases, starting from the date of your accident. The only exceptions relate to incidents whereby injuries develop over time and thus it is impossible to pinpoint an accident date, such as vibration white finger and industrial deafness. In these cases, you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.
- They are worried their employer will fire them – Last but not least, when it comes to workplace accident claims, a lot of people are worried that they may lose their job. This is something you really shouldn’t fret about, as your employer would only land themselves in further trouble if they were to sack you, as you would then have grounds for unfair dismissal too.
