Common myths about claiming for a bus accident in Thanet
Have you been involved in a bus accident in Thanet? If so, you will be rightly be thinking about making a claim for personal injury compensation. You have probably already had a look on the internet for information about doing so. The trouble with this is that there is a lot of confusing and even false information on the web. This can make you feel even more perplexed and at a loss regarding where to start.
But don’t worry, as we aim to dismiss all of the most common myths in this post. So, let’s get right to it.
- You will have to take the travel company to court – A lot of people are put off from making a case because they don’t want to take the travel company to court. They feel it will be worthless, as surely the company will be able to afford the best legal help and wriggle their way out of it. The truth is that it is extremely unlikely you will have to go to court. In fact, fewer than three per cent of our personal injury cases result in a trial. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we aim to resolve cases over the phone.
- You shouldn’t inform the travel company of what has occurred – It is actually more beneficial to launch a complaint and ensure the company is aware. This will show that you have gone down the proper channels and it will help your case.
- You can claim whenever you like – Unfortunately, believing this could result in you not receiving any compensation at all. There is a three-year time limit on all personal injury claims. This may seem like a long time, but court proceedings must be issued within this time frame, so you really cannot leave it until the last minute. Plus, you will find it easier to claim the sooner you do so, as building a strong case will be more straightforward.
- You don’t need to see a medical professional for your injuries – The opposite is true. If you do not see a medical professional, you won’t be able to claim. Seeing a doctor is essential, as it is the only way to properly prove the injuries you have sustained and therefore validate why you require compensation.
