New law against 100% compensation – Explained!

Some lawyers are not advising people correctly…

Have you been told that you won’t get 100% compensation because of law changes from April 2013? Are you instead facing a massive 25% deduction from your payout because the solicitor you have spoken to says you can’t get 100% compensation anymore?

Well read on – because in reality, it may not be as bad for you as you might have thought…

How much do Injury lawyers make on a claim?

The Injury Lawyers – THE 100% Compensation Injury Lawyers!

£1,000 a case? £10,000 a case? There’s a lot of stuff in the media about lawyers raking in the cash at the expense of employers, the taxpayer through council and NHS claims, and car insurers causing premiums to skyrocket and lawyers ending up being the bad guys.

But what the media won’t tell you is that the cold hard truth is that we lawyers don’t make anywhere near as much money as you might think. Read on for the real truth!

Broken Leg Injury Claims – What can I claim for?

A broken leg can be a devastating injury to suffer from, and the impact it can have in both the short term and long term on a victim’s life can be significant. I seriously injured my knee back in 2012 so I’m all too familiar with the affects of a serious leg injury and the extent that an injury can affect you.

So if you are the unfortunate victim of an accident and you want to make a claim for personal injury compensation, what can you claim for when it comes to a broken leg?

Should I accept an offer to settle my claim or have physio?

Should you take a claim settlement or have treatment? The big question!

With many injuries, treatment like physiotherapy is often key to help you recover from any ongoing symptoms at a much faster rate. You have a duty in law to ‘mitigate your loss’ which means you must take all reasonable steps to help yourself recover as quickly as possible and keep your losses to a minimum.

But when faced with the decision to accept an offer from the other side or have physio, what’s the best option?

Traffic Light Accidents – Who’s at Fault?

Traffic lights are natural accident hotspots despite the fact they’re there to prevent accidents and keep the flow of traffic moving as easily as possible. But most people in the UK live such busy lives that we’re constantly rushing around, and we’re all too tempted to ‘amber gamble’ or jump a just turned red light when driving; or cross a crossing when the lights are not in our favour. Traffic suddenly slowing is also a huge cause of accidents too.

If you are injured in an accident at traffic lights, can you make a claim for personal injury compensation?

When to make a compensation claim

The best thing is to do start it right away. There are limitation periods that mean you only get so much time from the date of an incident or date of knowledge of negligence to pursue a claim, but you are in a far better position making it immediately for many reasons.

Let’s take a brief look at the law and the reasons why starting it early can increase your chances of winning a claim as well as help you settle a claim in a shorter time frame.

The consequences of Contributory Negligence

Have you suffered an accident resulting in injuries which would not have occurred “but for” the fault of someone else? If you have, you may have a claim; but what happens if you are partially at fault for the accident or have done something that has contributed to making your injuries worse?

Here is a little insight in to how it can affect your claim if someone else is at fault, but you are partially to blame in some way as well.

What happens if you do not agree with the contents of a medico legal report?

Medico legal reports are often essential in valuing your claim for personal injury compensation and proving that the injuries caused were a result of the accident or incident you are claiming for. The expert will produce a report that will provide their findings.

But what many people don’t understand is that the expert is independent and their duty is to the court. As such, we can’t just ask them to produce a favourable report. They must put their reputation on the line and give their best professional opinion.

So what happens if you don’t agree with their opinion? What options do you have?

Is it too late to make a claim? – Time is running out…

PLEASE NOTE: This is only for general guidance only, and you should always seek proper advice from a qualified personal injury lawyer to accurately calculate your limitation to claim period.

For the majority of cases in England and Wales, you have three years from the date of an accident in which to make your claim for personal injury compensation. What this normally means is that you must either have settled your claim or issued court proceedings before the three year anniversary of the accident.

Three years may seem like a long time, and can even feel like ages away. But it isn’t…
