    Accident lawyers in Westminster


    When making any claim, you understandably want to get as much information as possible about the process and how you go about it. You want to feel confident that you are doing all in your power to get the full amount of compensation you deserve. Nevertheless, you do need to be mindful of the fact that not all of the information you read on the Internet is accurate. Keeping that in mind, continue reading to discover some of the most common myths about using the services of accident lawyers in Westminster.

    Myths about accident lawyers in Westminster

    It’s going to cost a fortune – If you use the services of accident lawyers in Westminster that charge by the hour, then this may very well be the case. However. There are no win no fee solicitors, and you should use their services instead. By going down this route, you will only pay legal fees if the solicitor manages to secure compensation. This eliminates financial risk and ensures your payout will be there to help you cover the fees if need be.

    You can claim whenever you like – Unfortunately, this is not the case. There is a time limit on all personal injury cases and this time limit is three years. It may seem like a long time, but please be mindful that court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. The three years always begins from the date of your accident. However, in some instances, pinpointing an accident date is impossible. This includes the likes of repetitive strain injury, industrial deafness and vibration white finger. In these instances, you will have three years from your diagnosis date instead.

    You can claim without seeing a doctor – In fact, the opposite is true, as you will struggle to find any accident lawyers in Westminster that will take on your case if you have not seen a doctor. This is because the medical report provided by your doctor is the most pivotal piece of evidence. If don’t see a medical professional, how are you going to prove you were injured in the first place?
