If you are unsure if you should claim compensation for personal injury arising from an accident, you are not alone.
We find it’s a common concern for many injury victims who think they may have a claim.
Even if you think there’s a good chance you could successfully claim compensation for an injury you have received as the result of an accident, you wonder whether you want the ‘hassle’ of doing so. Or whether it is the ‘right’ thing to do.
Time limits apply to personal injury claims but, for most injury victims, time is not of the essence.
You don’t have to finally make up your mind about claiming either today, tomorrow or even next week.
You can take some time to reflect and decide what’s best for you.
It’s not just about money …
Personal injury claims are about compensation. The law only values these claims in money terms.
In our experience, however, receiving compensation is just one element in a person’s decision to claim for personal injury. For some people, the money is a minor consideration, compared to other reasons they might have.
If you have doubts about whether or not to make a claim for compensation, you might find it helpful to see what various clients of Grigor & Young / Moray Claims have said about their reasons for claiming.
Their comments may help you see that you are not alone in your reasoning or perhaps draw to your attention other relevant factors which you had not considered up to now.
