When it comes to making an accident claim you may be put off by the fear that people will think you are faking. It’s true that from time to time accident healthcare claims scams occur, and you may have seen stories in the newspapers. Scams actually happen a lot less than you may think and if you need to make a claim for compensation, you should go ahead and do so. At Accident Advice Helpline, of course we’re going to take you seriously.
Steps to take to avoid accident healthcare claims scams
The first thing that is imperative for making a genuine claim is some form of medical evidence. Depending on the type of accident you were involved in, you will have evidence from your GP, hospital, walk in medical centre, or perhaps through police or paramedic reports. With your permission we will be able to access these records and see all the information pertaining to your injuries.
It may be that we will need to send you to an appointment with one of our own doctors. Sometimes we like to get a second opinion, and this appointment will also tell us the extent of ongoing treatment that you need. If you have been legitimately hurt, this certainly won’t prove a problem for you.
Seek a solicitor
To avoid being involved in any kind of scam, always use a solicitor that you can trust implicitly. Find a solicitor or a firm of solicitors with a nationwide reach and reputation. Good solicitors will never take on any case that they think they will lose, so they will advise you honestly of your chances and what you should be doing.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we won’t take money from you when we take on your case, but we will agree the cost of our fees upfront, if you should win your claim. This is because we don’t want you to spend money if you don’t have a chance.
With a lot of people running accident healthcare claims scams, there are a lot of people who are careful about who they believe and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be careful. Always go with a company you can trust. Accident Advice Helpline is one of these.
