Default Re: Injury Claim

From experience;

If you have a pre-existing condition, e.g. an x-ray finds arthritis that you may not have even known was there yet, it will be used to offset any compensation. I didn't know I had a lot of wear in my lower spine till an MRI after the accident. The accident brought on the onset a lot sooner but made little difference to the final payout - tough.

If you decline the offer and decide on a trip to court the judge may find in your favour but decide the offer is fair. You then pick up the costs.

No win, no fee is the law. This stops unscrupulous ambulance chasers. You've got nowt to lose, see a solicitor.
