Being injured can be a traumatic experience, especially when it results from someone else’s negligence. The last thing on your mind will probably be making a compensation claim – especially when considering the stigma and the myths surrounding the process.
It’s always advisable that you know the facts concerning the process of making a compensation claim before you decide to seek legal assistance.
Myth #1: I Can Make a Claim Anytime
You typically only have three years to make a claim, starting from the date of the incident or accident happening. If you’re making a claim on behalf of a minor, the three-year limit still applies, however, it starts from their 18th birthday.
Myth #2: Making a Claim is Expensive
At The Claims Partnership, we don’t ever want you to incur costs or go into debt should you decide to make a claim. Our No Win, No Fee policy ensures that, should your claim be unsuccessful, you won’t have to pay a single pound. We have insurance for situations in which something goes wrong and will never ask you for money.
We always make sure our clients are happy with the minimum percentage of compensation they are to receive in case a claim is successful. Similarly, we only charge our fee after you’ve received your compensation – and this fee is always pre-agreed with you.
Myth #3: I’m Guaranteed Compensation
Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. The majority of compensation claims result in a form of settlement, but you’re not guaranteed compensation. The amount you receive will depend upon numerous factors, including the details and severity of your injury.
Myth #4: Making a Claim Will Be a Long Process
We always aim to resolve every claim as quickly as possible. We understand how traumatic and distressing it can be, and our team will always fight for your best interests. Our solicitors always work towards amicable resolutions. Should you need to be at court, we will support you and guide you throughout the entire process.
Myth #5: Making a Claim is Just Wanting ‘Free Money’
There’s a stigma around compensation claims that prevent many people from pursuing the compensation they may be owed. You shouldn’t be afraid or feel guilty about considering a compensation claim. Our team will provide you expert guidance on your case every step of the way.
Most claims are filed due to a legitimate injury, and we know how much the accident and the claiming process themselves can be distressing. We will always make sure that you are well informed and that you receive any compensation that you’re owed as soon as possible.
