A Successful Injury Claim

You've probably read about the huge payouts that people receive from their injury claims (even those which occurred during the most unlikely or mundane of accidents!) but what makes these cases so successful? We've found three essential tips to help you get the compensation you deserve »

  1. Know your rights
  2. First things first: if you have suffered an injury from an accident that was not your fault then you may be legally entitled to compensation. Despite this, an overwhelming 70%1 of people who could make an injury claim never do. This is particularly evident when looking at workplace injuries, for instance, with a quarter2 of the UK workforce stating that they would not file a negligence claim against their employer if they were to suffer an injury at work. Perhaps they fear losing their job but with laws in place to protect employees against unfair dismissal this outcome is highly unlikely. Whether your injury occurred in the workplace, on the road, or elsewhere, and the accident was not your fault, always remember that you are legally within your rights to claim remuneration.

  3. The quicker you claim, the more likely it is to be a success
  4. The law in the UK states that you must claim within three years of suffering an injury. The quicker you act within this time, the easier it is for a court to confirm your evidence because medical records, witness statements and official records are faster to obtain. Thus the most important tip for success is undoubtedly speed – make your free claim enquiry now »

  5. Your claim could be worth thousands more than you think
  6. How much do you think a fractured arm injury is worth? A recent study exposed that 44%2 of respondents expected to receive just £2,000 worth of compensation for this type of injury when the reality was that they could get a staggering £6,000! Every year, 3 million3 people are injured in an accident that was not their fault; don't waste time guessing the figures – your claim could be worth thousands »
