If you have suffered an accident in Ulley, you should be aware of the many myths that surround personal injury claims. Some of these myths are as follows.
Myth #1: The settlement of personal injury claims always involve costly legal battles
The vast majority of personal injury claims are negotiated outside of the courts. However, if your case does go to court, an accident solicitor in Ulley will aim to settle your case in a timely manner. If you have secured no-win, no-fee* legal representation, such as with Accident Advice Helpline, you will not have to worry about the cost of making a claim as you will not have to pay our legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful.
Myth #2: It is possible to acquire a large compensation payout without the help of an accident solicitor in Ulley
If you have not received specialist legal training, you will get a better compensation payout by enlisting the help of an accident solicitor. Research shows that victims to try to make the claims themselves are less likely to win, and if they do, are usually awarded a lower amount of compensation.
The problem is that in such a small village you are unlikely to find a specialist injury solicitor, but you can always get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. We have over 16 years experience of making successful claims, and cover the whole of the UK.
Myth #3: Compensation claims are an easy source of spare cash
Contrary to popular belief, you will only receive the compensation to which you are legally entitled. In order to determine your compensation settlement, your accident solicitor will take a range of factors into account, including the severity of your injuries and the extent of your financial losses.
Myth #4: Insurance companies always provide suitable compensation settlements
Insurance companies are commercial organisations run to make profits. As such, it is not in their interest to provide you with a large compensation settlement. In the absence of an accident solicitor in Ulley, you may end up receiving an unfair compensation settlement. It is therefore essential to receive legal advice regarding the role that insurance companies play in compensation claims.
Myth #5: Judges will always side with wealthy people
Judges are independent and impartial. Their role is to assess the evidence presented to them, interpret and uphold the law. If you are worried about the prospect of making a compensation claim, it would be advisable for you to obtain the services of an accident solicitor in Ulley. The skills and experience of a knowledgeable legal expert will improve your chances of obtaining the best possible compensation settlement for your injuries.
