Compensation claims and the so called compensation culture are back in the news again, but the facts are often obscured by catchy headlines and I am left wondering who is actually driving this particular vehicle; take the following ‘fictions’ reported recently:-
My advice to anyone genuinely injured in a road accident – whether car driver, pedestrian, cyclist etc is to go & see an independent solicitor who specialises in accident claims; most offer a free initial consultation; you can then discuss your own circumstances, the procedure for making a claim and what a reasonable level of compensation might be; don’t be put off by the headlines about spurious claims – if you have been injured through someone else’s fault, you are entitled to be compensated for that.
