Many people do not like personal injury claim lawyers. They think that they encourage people to claim compensation, when they should not be doing so. However, they do a valuable job for many people and it is worth understanding why.
If a person has an accident, it can mean that they are so badly injured that they cannot work. Their sick pay may not be at a full pay rate or they may not get any at all and only get statutory sick pay. If this happens for a significant amount of time, it can mean that they get in to debt. They will still have to pay their mortgage or rent and bills, despite being unable to work and so however well they manage their money, they could get in to real trouble.
A personal injury claim will mean that the person who caused the accident will pay for it instead of the innocent victim. Perhaps some people think that they should grin and bear it, just carry on and put up with the pain and debt, but why should they. If there was a car accident and one driver damaged another car, they would be expected to pay for that and no one would think there was anything wrong with that. However, if there is an accident and a person is injured, then many people think that they should not be compensated for that. It hardly seems right.
Therefore, there is a way that people can get money and the law says that they are entitled to money. It means that they can get compensation for injuries they get and they will not have to go in to debt if the injury has stopped them from being able to do their job.
There are people that are opposed to the system because there are those who make false claims and as a result the insurance premiums of everyone go up. This is a sad thing, but it happens everywhere and innocent people have to pay, but it does not mean that deserving people should go without.
