PRLog - March 8, 2012 - In 2011 the Ministry of Justice announced a 3% rise in registered claims management firms, and a report by Datamonitor announced a rise in personal injury claims, in particularly in the motor insurance industry, making the UK’s personal injury market at its largest ever. Coupled with advances in online portals which make processing a claim much simpler, the claims market is flourishing.
Despite the growth of the personal injury market, there is still a stigma surrounding making a claim. Which isn’t surprising as the media is saturated with stories of where people are “simply trying it on.” There is no doubt though there are thousands of genuine cases each year who are entitled to compensation to aid them on their path to recovery.
Another complication in making a personal injury claim is how daunting the process can seem. There’s so many firms offering to take on your case, but who is best for you?
Then there is all the jargon that lawyers use it can just seem so overwhelming.
A new website was launched, Personal Injury Supermarket, that attempts to remove the stigma around making a claim and make the process as clear as possible, using clear simple plain English throughout the website. The information is focused on potential claimants needs to make them more comfortable and confident about making a claim.
The website answers hundreds of commonly asked questions such as: what is the injury claim process, what could my claim be worth and what is a claims management service. Furthermore there is a free twenty page guide to download on Personal Injury Claims and a handy calculator to find out what your claim could be worth. It covers the usual types of claims such as slips, trips and falls as well as advice on motoring accidents, medical negligence and work place claims. The site unusually doesn’t promote, encourage or attempt to persuade individuals to make claims, it merely discussed the various types of claims and seeks to demystify the complex legal claims process ensuring people are fully informed and able to make the best decision prior to engaging with a lawyer or claims management company.
