In cases of severe injury and extreme negligence, making a compensation claim following a car accident is an obvious step to take. More commonly, it’s less clear cut and lots of people are discouraged from claiming compensation for a variety of reasons. These can include:
Fear or lack of knowledge of the processes involved
Misgivings about becoming part of the “compensation culture”
Wanting to get “back to normal” as soon as possible without any fuss after the car accident
Worry about the prospect of giving evidence in court, or being cross examined
Feelings of intimidation at the sight of thick legal documentation
Not wanting to compromise a no-claims bonus
Feeling unsure whether or not the injury is serious enough to warrant a court case

For example, many people are greatly relieved to hear how unlikely it is that that their case will ever get as far as Court (only 2% ever do), and a full explanation at every stage of the proceedings can prove extremely reassuring.
