There are some people who feel embarrassed about asking for accident payouts. They have been injured in accidents that were not their own fault but feel embarrassed about asking for help. They may feel that they do not deserve any compensation or feel that they are being greedy. It is often this type of client that actually needs help most of all.
There is a personal injury law firm that can help you if you are feeling like this – we are called Accident Advice Helpline.
Here are a few comments about accident compensation.
Compensation payouts are unnecessary
There are some people who are against the so-called compensation culture that seems to be developing in the UK. They feel that an accident is an accident and that there is no need for compensation. This is a valid point of view and Accident Advice Helpline recognise this. That is why we only help clients who actually have a genuine case for claiming compensation.
Our unique Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test is how we do this. It asks a few simple but very important questions about the accident and the injury. They are:
- Was the accident your own fault?
- Were you injured in the accident?
- Which part of your body was injured?
People who have caused the accident themselves will not get accident payouts. Accident payouts are only for people who have been hurt in accidents that were someone else’s fault. Also, there must be an injury. This is why we are called a personal injury law. Finally, the part of your body that was injured will influence how much compensation you may get. Accident payouts tend to be larger for the more serious injuries.
Compensation payouts are only for people who are in work
This is not true. They are for anyone who has been injured. There is an element of the claim which covers lost wages and if you are not earning money then you would not be entitled to claim this. However, there is also an element for additional expenses such as extra childcare and help around the home and you may need to claim for these.
Asking for accident payouts is embarrassing
This is not the case at all when you use a professional law firm like Accident Advice Helpline. We have a team of highly trained professional advisers who can help right from the start. We respect and understand the callers to Accident Advice Helpline’s 24 hour hotline and do all that we can to help them. We offer support and early advice. It is always up to the client to make the final decision about starting the claim.
Accident payouts are just a way of grabbing money
Accident compensation are actually a legal right. If someone has caused you harm because of something that they did or did not do then you deserve compensation. This is only fair. You can give our team a call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 to discuss things in more detail.
