Claims Company Warns of Compensation Crunch
Personal Injury claims are a part of modern society. When an individual is injured in an accident at no fault to themselves and the accident is caused by negligence, then appropriate compensation amounts should be sought. We have all seen the adverts, but are they trying too hard? This Legal Request special release looks at the developing compensation crunch.
PR9.NET April 21, 2009 - David Topping, Managing Director of Legal Request Ltd said 'There is a trend to over inflate the amount of compensation successful claims can achieve in order to get the claimant to sign up. Compensation amounts can only be given as a guide based on previous successful cases with similar circumstances. Inflated compensation amounts quoted on websites and during canvassing telephone calls is a ploy to get the claim'.
As the number of compensation cases goes up, then the amount of compensation that is settled against true claims is vastly reduced. Compensation then fails to cover the care that injured people need to make a full recovery. This can be seen in a similar light as the credit crunch, where companies see that there is more value in selling a product than the product itself.
David continues 'To sustain these activities, the amount of data that is required to keep the outbound calls going is astonishing. This has resulted in the illegal trading of personal details of people who have been involved in accidents. Coupled with criminal claims, cash for crash, the industry is heading for a compensation crunch. Companies need to be responsible; the true value in personal injury cases is recovery for the victim, funded by appropriate compensation'.
