    Should you claim for accident injuries?

    Despite the fact that several hundred individuals per annum are injured at work and around one million on the roads, most citizens wouldn’t know how to claim for accident and injury if it happened to them.

    Myths abound

    People worry they will run up huge legal bills for seeking advice. The prospect of court appearance and being eyeballed by black-gowned barristers is intimidating. The thought of incurring the wrath of “the other side” is also terrifying. Even for a fit and healthy individual, legal action is not to be taken likely, so a person who is suffering injury and who doesn’t feel up to the fight may abandon the idea. In practice, the majority of claims are settled out of court and usually only one independent medical report is required.

    Help is at hand

    This is why, of course, we have lawyers expert in the process of claim for accident and injury, to defend the rights of people whose lives have been shattered through no fault of their own.  The process doesn’t get any easier; especially with the proposed changes to the no win no fee* payment scale. However, it is still worth doing the early homework.

    Online means better access for the little guy

    The majority of compensation providers offer a quick and easy assessment service to inform a client about the eligibility of their claim for accident and injury and where possible, offer an estimate. Accident Advice Helpline has a 30-second online test to check eligibility and the client can decide whether to seek further advice before being referred to a law firm.

    Help them to help you

    To back up a claim for accident injury, it helps if the claimant can provide contact details of any witnesses and notes and photographs of the incident wherever possible. It is also helpful to keep any receipts, especially for medical treatment and expenses incurred as a direct result of the accident.
