    The courage of conviction: Why accidents shouldn’t be brushed off


    Suffering an accident can be one of the most traumatic things that an individual can experience. Many of us may be tempted to “brush off” accidents as a mere mishap for various reasons, for example, not wanting to make a fuss, or underestimating our injuries. At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand the courage and bravery of conviction to come forward with a claim for compensation. Here are some of the reasons why you shouldn’t dismiss any sort of accident, whether it be an accident at work, a road traffic accident, or an accident on holiday.

    Your injuries may not be apparent immediately to merit conviction

    Some long-term injuries may not be readily apparent in the wake of an accident, and many injuries can take a long time to manifest and have a severe impact on your health and livelihood. Somewhere down the line, you may regret not making the conviction for a claim for compensation, where your life has been irreversibly affected and it wasn’t your fault. It is important to seek medical attention in the wake of any accident to increase the chances of a diagnosis of any underlying injury such as whiplash or Asbestos poisoning, the symptoms of which may not be visible at first.

    An accident need not involve a lengthy court process

    Many people are afraid to pursue a claim for compensation because they believe that a lengthy court battle will ensue and do not wish to relive the details of their accident in a courtroom, they may also fear taking a claim for compensation against their employer and the consequences this might have for their future employment. At Accident Advice Helpline we aim to make the claim process as efficient and transparent as possible, resulting in a quick settlement, often made outside of court and many of our clients need never set foot in a courtroom.

    Losing a claim will result in hefty legal costs

    Many people assume that pursuing a claim for compensation is a lengthy and costly process. With Accident Advice Helpline this is not the case. All claims are made on a 100 per cent no win, no fee basis. This means that you should you be unsuccessful in your claim for compensation, then you will not have to pay any solicitor fees.

    It takes courage to come forth with a claim for compensation and at Accident Advice Helpline, our friendly and professional advisers are here to help you every step of the way. To discuss your claim with a member of our expert team dial 0800 689 0500 now.
