If you have been injured in an accident claim and you live in the Bromley area, you could be entitled to claim compensation. However, a lot of people miss out on some on their claims due to some simple mistakes. Here are just a few of them.
Assuming it’s straightforward
There are many claims companies advertising on the TV these days each of whom like to paint the picture of a process which is extremely simple. As a result, when you’ve been in a Bromley accident you could have been forgiven for thinking that all it takes is a couple of phone calls and you’re good to go.
Of course the truth is very different and indeed the harsh reality of life is that claims can take several years and even some of the simpler claims can come with hidden complications.
Settling too early
It’s frustrating to see some people settling their claims early on and that’s because they could well be missing out on compensation which they could have found to be extremely useful.
When you make a claim the other side will look at the situation and examine their chances of winning. If they think they will lose they will probably offer a settlement figure to avoid going through the courts.
However, because they are good at what they do the chances are this settlement figure will be some way short of what you should be entitled to. At Accident Advice Helpline we offer a compensation calculator – this is a useful tool that allows you to get a rough insight into how much compensation you may be entitled to, if you are successful with your case.
Not explaining themselves well
When you first get in touch with us, we’ll spend time talking with you about your case. This enables us to tell you whether or not we think you can win and how much you can claim. In doing this it helps if you can provide as much information about the case as possible. Indeed, the more information you have the more likely it is that we can be of assistance. A lot of people fail to explain themselves well and miss out on compensation as a result.
