Making sense of compensation claims

by TheCompensationGroup on April 1, 2013

Everyone seems to be talking about personal injury these days. The web is awash with news of compensation claims, it’s always on the TV and the daily papers are packed with stories about negligence, workplace accidents and personal injury claims.

Everyone’s talking about it, but not everyone is telling you what you need to know. So here’s a handy guide to Personal Injury compensation that cuts through the noise and hopefully makes things a little clearer for you.

What is ‘Personal Injury Compensation’?
Basically, personal injury occurs when you suffer an injury (physical or psychological) as a result of an accident. If the accident occurred through no fault of your own and someone else was to blame then it’s widely accepted that you should receive some form of compensation for your injuries. After all, why should you have to suffer for something that wasn’t your fault?

Personal injury can occur in a wide range of places and situations, examples include workplace accidents, car accidents, cycling accidents, trips or falls, holiday accidents, sports injuries, animal injuries. View the different types of personal injury claims here

If you’ve been injured in any of these circumstances in the last three years and it wasn’t your fault then you could be entitled to claim compensation.

How do you make a compensation claim?
Claiming compensation can sound complicated and the very idea of paperwork, solicitors and courtrooms is enough to put many people off claiming the compensation that they are entitled to. However, these people are needlessly missing out, as more often than not the whole process is easy and stress free. Solicitors often do the paperwork for you and 95% of cases are resolved before they even get to court. So you don’t need to worry at all, it’s a lot easier than you might think.

The Compensation Group  has lots of information that can be very helpful if you’re considering making a claim. It can take as little as 20 seconds to start the claims process. All you have to do is fill out a simple form and wait for their friendly advisors to get in touch and guide you through the claims process. There’s no obligation to proceed with your claim but if you’re eligible they’ll choose you the ideal compensation claim solicitor to suit your needs and where possible one that’s based in your local area too.

What does ‘No Win No Fee claim’ mean?
No Win No Fee Claims were introduced to allow people, who were injured through no fault of their own, to claim for compensation without fear of being stuck with large legal bills if their claim is unsuccessful.

This takes the risk out of making a compensation claim and gives people from all walks of life the opportunity to fight for justice, without fear of endangering their financial situation. If you’ve been injured in the last 3 years and it wasn’t your fault you should definitely consider making a claim. Why not? Thanks to No Win No Fee claims you have nothing to lose.

How much compensation could you receive?
Due to the nature of personal injury claims it’s very hard to predict how much compensation you could receive for your injuries but it is possible to estimate. This Claims Calculator tool could be perfect for you if you’d like to find out what amount of compensation you could possibly receive.

Whatever type of injury you have suffered, this easy-to-use tool allows you to simply click on the area of your body that you have injured and find out immediately how much compensation you could be entitled to.
