We can all benefit from advice, just as long as it’s good advice. This is especially true after a car accident, which is an event that can have serious consequences. The trouble is, there are a lot of people who feel compelled to give advice to accident victims when they really shouldn’t.
They may mean well, of course, but giving someone the wrong advice after a car accident in Kingston upon Thames can lead to even more difficulty. That’s the last thing you need when you’re trying to get better.
Some of the misinformation relates to claiming
Of course, well-meaning but incorrect advice of a medical nature can easily be brushed off, because you will know from your doctor exactly what you should do in order to manage your recovery.
When it comes to claims-related advice, though, you might not know very much about getting compensation. This could lead you to take someone’s word about something, and what you hear could actually be completely wrong.
For example, someone might say that because you only suffered whiplash, you can’t make a claim. The truth is, you could be eligible to claim, because whiplash is an injury and if you have medical evidence of your injury, it will suffice.
You might also be told that claiming puts you at financial risk and is a very stressful process. In fact, when you choose a no win no fee* solicitor through Accident Advice Helpline, money and stress will not be issues. You will have peace of mind throughout the process.
