How to Bring Your Claim Your Way.

There have been many changes to the law in the last five years, budgets have been cut, costs have been restricted and legal aid is all but gone.

While these changes have all been directed at legal professionals, limiting and restricting how they work and get paid for their work, the ones who suffer are the general public.

As they lose their Access to Justice, by losing affordable legal representation.

People who have low value, but valid claims are finding themselves without any kind of legal representation, going up against large insurance companies and their extensive legal teams all alone, with no legal advice.

This is because legal professionals cannot financially afford to take on these cases anymore. As claims for injuries which are valued at less than £25,000.00, have had their costs fixed. Meaning that regardless of how much work is involved the pay will always be the same and this is usually a lower amount than the work involved, more work for less pay effectively, meaning large write-offs for firms.

Also, previously the losing party was responsible for the winning parties’ costs (so if you won the claim the Defendant insurance team would pay your legal costs) now they are only responsible for a part of those costs and the remainder will come out of your compensation. This is limited to 25% of your compensation, but if your legal professional has done ten hours’ worth of work and your compensation is a few thousand, then 25% of that won’t cover the work involved.

This means less compensation for you and the risk of going out of business for firms that take on these cases.

So more and more of the UK public are finding themselves with perfectly valid claims but no legal advice or help and with the budgets of free legal advice clinics being cut free legal advice is thin on the ground.

How Long Will Your Road Traffic Accident Claim take?

One of the most popular questions that is asked during a Personal injury claim is how long will my claim take/why is my claim taking this long?

Many people without a legal background and/or an understanding of legal procedure expect claims to run quickly, a couple of weeks maximum. But the reality is very different, even a ‘straight forward’ claim can take several months and ‘straight forward’ claims are few and far between. There is a lot more to a claim than most people expect, and something that on the surface may seem straight forward can become complicated very quickly.

In this article, I will discuss how long  Personal Injury claims can take and provide you with tips on what you can do to help your case proceed as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

How Long Do You Have To Bring a Car Accident Claim?

There are many good reasons why you might consider delaying bringing a claim for compensation after you have been involved in a car accident.

It is likely that your initial thoughts are going to revolve around any injury to yourself and any others in the vehicle with you. You will be seeking medical attention, not solicitors. Then, once the shock has passed your focus is likely to shift onto your recovery. You may be trying to anticipate how this injury will impact your daily life and what you can do to manage this. It can be months or even years before your thoughts turn to any potential claim that you may have.

In other instances, I have met with clients who have considered bringing a claim and decided against it initially but later gone on to change their minds when it has become apparent that their injury is far more severe than they first believed it to be.

Overall there is a multitude of reasons why you wouldn’t bring a claim immediately after suffering a road traffic accident. But how long can you delay?
