Banishing the myths about claiming compensation
Unfortunately, injuries happen every day, and they can occur in a number of ways. This includes everything from workplace accidents, to slips and trips, to food poisoning, to road traffic accidents and much, much more. If you are thinking about using the services of accident lawyers in Magor, read on to discover some of the most common myths that are found on the internet before you make your claim.
You have to go to court – A lot of people envisage a lengthy trial if they make a compensation claim with accident lawyers in Magor or across the UK. This is certainly not the case. In fact, it is highly unlikely that you will have to go to court, as less than three per cent of personal injury cases result in a trial.
You can make a claim whenever you like – Unfortunately a lot of people miss out on the compensation they would have been entitled to pursue because they waited too long to make a claim. There is in fact a three year time limit on all personal injury cases. This starts from the date of the accident and court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. If your injury has occurred over time, and pinpointing an incident date is impossible, you will have three years from the date of diagnosis instead.
You need access to money to make a claim – Again, this is untrue. If you use the services of no-win, no-fee accident lawyers in Magor, or a UK wide specialist law firm like Accident Advice Helpline, you don’t need to make a huge upfront payment to start the claim process. This offers claimants peace of mind at a challenging time.
You can claim without seeing a doctor – If you have been injured, no matter how minor it may be, it is vital that you see a doctor. The medical report they provide you with is the most crucial piece of evidence when making a claim. It states your injuries and the recommended course of treatment, which is then used to determine how much money you will be entitled to.
