There are an estimated 71,000 personal injury claims made in the UK every month, which elicits a wide range of responses from lawyers, government, the media and your average person on the street.
While a huge number of these claims will be valid, there are the unfortunate few that will be discarded as fraudulent, and these are the ones that gain too much attention. After all, Frenkels Forensics has seen first hand just how damaging personal injury cases are, both for the claimant and defendant.
Indeed, personal injury claims can often involve stories that have had a massive impact on someone’s life. From careless workmanship through to improper risk assessment, it is easy for people to become the victim of an injury that changes their life dramatically, in both the short and the long term.
It is therefore imperative that the necessary support and expertise is available to deal with these cases. And with over 70,000 personal injury claims a month, both claimants and defendants will find themselves in need of help to ensure justice is done and the correct financial compensation is paid. Enter Frenkels Forensics.
The company’s forensic accountants prepare reports setting out the loss of earnings and loss of pension suffered by the claimant, whether it be for a clinical negligence case or an injury suffered at the hands of someone else. Sometimes this can include incidents where a life is lost, in which case a range of expenses and lost money must be calculated, including losses relating to pensions.
Of course, Frenkels Forensics also regularly work with defendants facing personal injury claims. For example, a retailer might face a lawsuit after a worker suffered a fall at work – the forensic accounting team can carefully assess the loss of earnings to ensure the claim is not exaggerated, thereby saving the defendant money.
