Injury accidents can have a significant impact on our own as well as the lives of those around us. Having a denied claim can then, in effect, double this impact. This means we should be aware of the reasons why we could possibly end up with a denied claim.
No evidence, insufficient evidence, badly written or mismatched statements may lead to denied compensations claims. At the very least you may not receive full compensation. This is what is referred to as factual evidence. A denied claim can also occur if the expert evidence does not support your case. In terms of this, experts are under no obligation to support your case with their expert opinion.
Just this year in June a claim to the amount of £4,5 million was denied due to this. Specifically, due to insufficient evidence on part of the personal injury law firm. They claimed that the number of referrals agreed upon did not occur. They were not able to provide the High Court with sufficient evidence for this claim. This occurs across all claims including injury accidents and therefore, should be taken seriously.
In England or Wales you need to lay a claim within three years of the injury. This is in order for it to still be viable. One exception to this is in terms of children although it is advisable, in both cases, to make the claim as soon as possible-especially in terms of evidence and gaining the support you need for life-changing injuries.

Liability or negligence plays a large part in receiving compensation for your claim. For example, if you want to claim compensation for a holiday injury, there needs to be evidence proving that the injury was the fault of or due to negligence on the holiday-makers part.
When another party wishes to put forward a ‘without prejudice offer’, it means that they want to settle the claim, or at least part of the claim, without professing liability. Your claim will reach its conclusion if you accept this offer but if you do not there is a chance that you may lose it- especially if you do not have watertight evidence.
If it is proven that you were at fault, or perhaps partly at fault-in other words that the injury is not the fault of another party but your own-then your claim can be denied or you can receive less compensation For example, if you suffer an injury on holiday, your claim can be denied if you were drinking whilst or even recently before the injury occurred.
In this case, you will not necessarily be denied a claim if you do not acquire the relevant legal help. Although, especially in terms of complex cases, acquiring legal help is nearly always a good idea. If not, you may end up not receiving the amount of compensation deserved simply due to your own lack of professional knowledge.
