    Top excuses to avoid when claiming compensation

    Even though a person has every right for claiming compensation following an accident, some believe they should not for a variety of reasons.

    Accident Advice Helpline looks at the top excuses to avoid when claiming compensation.

    Job loss for claiming compensation

    Fear of losing their job is a prime excuse with claimants concerned over retribution from an employer. Coupled with that is the worry that if they do lose their job any prospective new employer will be put off when they discover the applicant had made a claim for compensation after an accident at work.

    But dismissing an individual from a job because they have filed a claim is actually against employment law and can result in a claim for unfair dismissal and this is one of the many aspects the fully trained, professional advisers at Accident Advice Helpline will go through, and they are available 24/7.

    The compensation claims system

    Many people who have suffered injuries through no fault of their own do not claim due to the legal system, which can take quite some time. The system also appears complicated, or they have been told by someone, perhaps their employer, they are not entitled to claim after an accident.

While it can take some time to get compensation, quite often the claim can be dealt with quickly and efficiently over the phone and without the need to attend court.

    Lack of claim knowledge

    Many individuals are unaware of their entitlement for claiming compensation after suffering an injury as they may think it is not serious enough or the responsibility does not lie with someone else. Accident Advice Helpline offers a 30-second test, which can be taken to see if a person qualifies for compensation.

    Emotional factor of work or car accidents

    Concern over recounting the accident can be emotionally upsetting for many people and this can be used as an excuse not to claim for the compensation which they are entitled to after an accident. This is understandable and the advisers at Accident Advice Helpline are trained to deal with this and will show you how to make the claim with the least amount of distress. The law firm works on a no win – no fee* basis, which also helps to alleviate worry.
