    Hassle free claims in Bedford

    Making a personal injury claim can be one of the more stressful experiences we go through. A lot of this comes from the fear of the unknown. To help ease your fears, therefore, we put together this guide about some of the things you’ll need to know in order to make hassle free claims in Bedford.

    Making hassle free claims in Bedford

    The fear of personal injury claims stems from two factors. On the one hand there is the fear of going to court and on the other there is how much it is going to cost. People also are worried by the underdog factor: the sense that they are nothing more than a single individual going up against the considerable might and power of a large insurance firm.
    Let’s address those one by one.

    Going to court

    First the thought of going to court. This is as natural a fear as it is unfounded. In the majority of cases, you won’t have to go to court, because the other side will probably decide to settle before it gets that far. As the insurance company is the one tasked with paying the claim, they may well make an assessment about their chances of winning and come to the decision that they are not very good. As such they will seek to bail out of any claim before it gets too expensive for them. When they offer this settlement fee you can decide whether you want to accept it or not, or press on to take your case further.

    Even if it does go to court, this is a different kettle of fish to the idea of the criminal courts you might be thinking of. There is no jury so it’s not nearly as intimidating as you might think.

    Paying for a claim

    The second concern is how much it is going to cost. It is true that the removal of legal aid implies some financial risks when making personal injury claims, but these needn’t be too terrifying. At Accident Advice Helpline we work on the basis of no-win, no-fee, which means that you won’t have to pay anything upfront.
