Next time you hear of someone being injured in an accident that was not their own fault, just stop to consider what you would do in their situation. Apart from having to deal with the injuries, the financial implications of an accident can be disastrous, but still only 3 out of 10 innocent victims make a claim wityh an accident solicitor in Stockton on Tees or somewhere else in the UK.
Several reasons are given for why victims do not bother to get in touch with our accident solicitor in Stockton on Tees to claim their compensation, most of them based on out of date information.
Some of the reasons victims do not seek the help of our accident solicitor in Stockton on Tees
Laws in the UK are changed all the times, and ones relating to personal injury claims are no different. Because most law changes are not huge, they are not publicised, and people do not always know about them. This is part of the reason for so many misconceptions about compensation claims, such as:
- I cannot afford to claim – this is one of the most common misconceptions of all. Victims get concerned about the legal fees they will have to pay if their claim is lost. If they use Accident Advice Helpline they will not have to pay legal fees in this situation, as we use the no-win, no-fee agreement.
- It takes too long – no one can say how long a claim will take, the timescale can vary. All we can say is that we work as quickly and efficiently as possible, and if there any delays with your claim, they will not be the fault of Accident Advice Helpline.
- Its too much like hard work – not if you use Accident Advice Helpline it isn’t. We deal with everything for you, leaving you to concentrate on your recovery.
- It’s not worth it for the amount I will get – most people need more money than they have, so how can it not be worth it. Some victims think that they will be awarded a sum that is very small, but they need to take our 30-second test to find out more. This will let them know if they have a valid claim, and then give them an estimate of how much their compensation could be.
If only more of these victims contacted Accident Advice Helpline for a chat, we are confident that many more of them would make a compensation claim.
