Financial Hardship Cases

Injury Claims Case Interim Compensation

Injury Victims Facing Financial Hardship

One of the major sources of concern surrounds financial hardship. An injury victim may have lost their income or had their pay reduced to Statutory Sick Pay. The concern as to how to feed the family, pay the rent or the mortgage becomes acute and can then impede recovery. If an admission of liability is made it may be possible to obtain an Interim Payment by agreement or by way of an Application to the Court under Rule 25 of the Civil Procedure Rules. Opponents will often wish to see some medical evidence before agreeing to make an Interim Payment. In some cases an accident victim will be advised not to submit a claim immediately if full pay is being received in absence. The receipt of a claim could cause the pay to stop. Seek guidance, reassurance and advice from Folgate Legal.

In lower value cases there is an automatic right to an interim payment if liability has been admitted when medical evidence is disclosed.

It may also be possible to bring a benefits claim regardless of liability and Folgate Legal will explain the effect that a benefits claim might have on your compensation.
