Things You Never Knew About Compensation Claims

  • January 4, 2019

Compensation claims

There is a whole host of different claims that are made every year – from slips and trips, to claims for industrial deafness and repetitive strain injury, to food poisoning and medical negligence… the list really is limitless. In this post, we will take a look at three important things you may not know about compensation claims. No matter what type of injury you have sustained, these three points apply to all…

There is a time limit on all claims

First and foremost, a lot of people do not realise there is a time limit on all personal injury cases. This limit is usually three years, meaning you have three years from the date of the accident for court proceedings to be issued. There are some exceptions, namely in regards to injuries that develop over time, such as industrial deafness. In these instances you will usually have three years from the date of your diagnosis. The situation is also different if you were a child when you were injured. If this was the case, your parents would be able to claim compensation for you. If they failed to do this, you have the opportunity to do so, with the three-year limit starting from your 18th birthday.

You won’t be able to make a successful claim if you do not visit a medical professional

A lot of people bypass a trip to the doctor when they suffer a minor injury. Yet, if you do this, it is highly unlikely that you will receive any compensation at all. In fact, you will struggle to find a personal injury lawyer willing to take on your case. You need to be professionally diagnosed with your injury so that there is proof of it.

You are not only compensated for your suffering, but you will receive special damages as well

Last but not least, did you know that you are not only compensated for your injuries but also any out of pocket expenses you incur as a result of the injury? These are known as special damages. Examples include childcare costs, medication fees, travel expenses, loss of income, accommodation costs and such like. If the expense has occurred because of the injury, you can claim for it. Nonetheless, make sure you keep your receipts and any other type of proof, as you will need it.

As you can see, there is a lot that comes together when making a personal injury case. If you are thinking about doing so, it is important to work with a top quality lawyer who can assist you. They will be able to ensure you know everything you need to know about making a claim.

Claims and Denials in the Insurance Industries

  • November 30, 2018

Insurance claims are not always straightforward activities. There are many different kinds of insurance, and there are many kinds of contexts that those insurance niches operate in. And, for every possibility of getting your insurance claim approved, there is an equal possibility of that claim being denied for one of a million different reasons.

Because of these uncertainties, you should do as much research as possible about the insurance industry that may most affect you, and you should do it before some sort of time constraint shows up that you have. A few examples of times where you might want to research insurance opportunities in advance include dealing with disability claims, disaster area claims, and workplace claims.

Disability Claims

If you're trying to make a disability claim to an insurance company, there are lots of ways that they can figure out to deny you. Insurance companies aren't out there to help you. They are out there to make money. They need to make sure that the number of claims that they pay out to is less than the money that they are getting in from their overall client base. It's essential that you never forget that that equation is in place as you're making your particular claim.

Disaster Area Claims

How many disasters are happening all around the world right now? There are hurricanes, floods, fires, mudslides, droughts, and everything in between. Because best, the insurance that people have for disasters is a functional pivot point in their lives. Either they have the protection and can claim it and get the money, or some other set of situations is present that they either don't have the right insurance or don't go through the proper claiming procedures. Insurance companies are going to be very specific if they owe a lot of money to a lot of people in a similar area at the same time.

Claims Inside the Workplace

Then there is the matter of insurance claims inside a workplace. Initially, you could consider this some variation of Worker's Compensation that may have to be dealt with. Other times, related to the idea of insurance would be employee claims of toxic workplaces, sexual harassment, or racial impropriety. Allegations and denials of these matters can come down to very small and specific facts, so researching ahead of time is advisable.

Paperwork Can Create the Issues

In the end, a lot of insurance claims that ultimately get rejected are denied because of paperwork being filled out incorrectly, or proof not being presented at the appropriate time to the appropriate people. You have to have a long paper trail to prove many insurance claims, and there also needs to be a very clear focus on doing everything as per instructions.
