    Myth-busting: Accident claims are greedy and unnecessary


    A common misconception about an accident claim is that they are often greedy, unnecessary and opportunistic. Here, Accident Advice Helpline puts rest to the myth that personal injury compensation claims are greedy and unnecessary.

    The pain and suffering involved in an accident deserves an accident claim

    Suffering an accident can be a terribly traumatic experience and it’s important to receive an adequate remedy for the pain and suffering you have experienced. Suffering an accident either at work, on holiday or on the roads, can have serious long term consequences for your health and livelihood, and it’s important that you receive the right amount of compensation for your accident. Sometimes the severity of your injuries may not be clear immediately in the wake of an accident, some injuries may manifest themselves over a period of time and it is important to seek proper medical advice in the wake of an accident in order to have the severity of your injuries determined. You may feel that you can brush off the accident, but may end up regretting this decision further down the line.

    Setting an example of making an accident claim

    Not only is it important for you as an individual to receive adequate redress for the injuries that you have suffered, but what is to say that if a person or organisation has negligently failed in their duty of care towards you, that this will not happen to another individual? It is important that organisations or individuals are not immune from suit, and are held to account in any cases where they may have acted negligently in their duty of care towards another individual.

    If you have suffered an injury as the result of a road traffic accident, an injury at work, an accident on holiday, or a slip, trip or fall, then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. It is important that you receive the proper advice when making a claim and at Accident Advice Helpline we aim to make every step of the claim process as transparent and as efficient as possible for all our clients. Our lines are open 24/7 on 0800 689 0500 and you can be guaranteed that a friendly, professional adviser is waiting to take your call.
