Every year, there are thousands of people involved in an accident in Haringey who could conceivably claim compensation for their injuries. The problem is that relatively few of them launch a claim. There are many reasons for this, but they often come down to two things: ignorance and fear.
Coping after an accident in Haringey
When you’ve been injured, it’s only natural to be worried about what the world might have in store for you. You will no longer feel as certain about the world as you did before, and you may suddenly find yourself looking to the future with apprehension. What if you can no longer do the job you used to, for example? Put yourself in the shoes of a builder who suffers a debilitating injury, which means he can no longer work in his chosen profession.
In these circumstances, compensation can be a real lifeline, providing the finance and support that people need to get their life back on the right track. The problem is that despite advertisements for personal injury firms filling airwaves, a surprising number of people never realise that they are entitled to make a claim.
A lack of information
Part of the reason for this is that some personal injury law firms don’t provide too much information about what precisely is involved in making a claim. They prefer instead to send out a former sports star or some other B-list celebrity to make lots of exciting promises. Many people in Britain instinctively feel that this is not for them.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re different. We do have a celebrity spokesperson in Esther Rantzen, but with us it’s someone who has built a career around helping consumers, and the support of our firm represents nothing more than a continuation of this ethos.
We also make a point of working hard to provide as much information about personal injury law as possible. After an accident in Haringey, or anywhere else, our team is there 24 hours a day to provide all the help you need. We won’t give you the hard sell, and we won’t do anything other than tell you information which is useful to you in your search for justice.
There is another thing that holds people back, and that tends to be fear. Launching any form of litigation can be an expensive process, and if there is no guarantee of success at the end of it then it might seem like too much of a risk to take on.
Again, Accident Advice Helpline are different. We work on the basis of no win no fee, which means that if you do not win then your finances are protected.
So, to find out how we can be there to help you after an accident in Haringey, give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
