Why Claim Compensation?

Every day, people suffer illnesses or accidents which affect their lives, even in a small way.  You may catch flu or a stomach bug, meaning you need to take a couple of days off of work.  In this case, your employer may pay you your normal wage, or pay you statutory sick pay.  If you are self-employed, illness may mean you lose out on an important contract, which may be even more expensive if you don’t have insurance to cover it.

You may break your leg playing football, or catch pneumonia after a weekend camping in Scotland.  When this happens, we suffer physically and financially – but, when we know the risks we accept it is our fault and that the injury was accidental.  An illness such as flu is often one of life’s tribulations, which we accept as part of life, and accept the physical and financial consequences.

However, what if the illness is not our fault? What if you go into hospital and catch the super-bug MRSA?  This disease can have devastating physical consequences, and lead you to taking weeks if not months off of work.  You may lose long term business contracts, or even your job.   This will have a knock on effect, and you may be unable to pay your mortgage, rent or credit card payments.

Why should you have to suffer if it was not your fault?

An injury may affect you for the rest of your life.  If you suffer a car accident you may suffer pain for several years, or even the rest of your life.  You may need a carer, or ongoing medical treatment, all of which costs money.  You may also have to give up the hobbies you used to enjoy, like golf or cycling.

Accidents happen, but if they were not your fault and were caused by the negligence of a third party, then that third party should pay for it.  This is not punishment or you being greedy, but a rightful claim for expenses caused directly by the illness or injury (called special damages) and for financial losses incurred in the future (called general damages), and for pain and suffering.

Claiming compensation for an injury or illness caused by a third party means receiving what you deserve.  Damages not only pay your expenses but also help your recovery, and ease the stress levelled on your bank account and your family.

How can I claim compensation for an injury?

To claim compensation you will need to get evidence of your injuries and prove it was caused by another party.  This will entail getting witness statements and medical and legal reports.  We at Manners Pimblett are here to help you.  It does not have to be a complicated process.  Contact us at Manners Pimblett and we can do the hard work for you.  We offer NO WIN NO FEE* agreements on personal injury matters, call one of our experts today for more information. 0845 0770772..
