Car accident compensation payouts have entered the realms of folk lore and urban myths. There are always people who will tell you that they got ‘x amount’ for a whiplash claim or ‘y amount’ for a broken arm. So how can you get to the truth amongst the tall stories and the exaggerations?
All you have to do is call Accident Advice Helpline and they will help you to separate the fact from the fiction of car accident compensation payouts! Here is a small portion of what the friendly, professional advisers at Accident Advice Helpline will tell you.
Car accident compensation payouts, separating the fact from the fiction
It is pure fiction to claim that all car accident compensation payouts are paid from a bottomless pit of money. Most claims are paid from insurance companies and they will require a high level of proof before they will be happy to pay. Accident Advice Helpline have a team of highly trained and experienced personal injury lawyers who deal with car insurance companies all the time and know exactly what to do to secure car accident compensation payouts with the minimum of hassle.
It is also complete fiction to say that you do not have to be hurt to get car accident compensation payouts. A personal injury claim is for a personal injury – this means that you have to have a physical or psychological injury. You would normally have received some medical attention for your injury and so it would have been serious enough for you to have gone to the hospital or called in to see your family doctor.
It is a fact that car accident compensation payouts are not just for your injury! They are also for money that you have lost because you have been injured. You can claim for money that you have lost because you were not earning any money or were earning less than before the accident. You provide proof of this by presenting your wage slips from before and after the accident date.
You can also claim for childcare expenses if you have had to pay for someone to look after your child because you were not capable of looking after them yourself. You would present receipts from the childcare provider, such as a nursery or child minder, as proof of this. You can also claim for help with personal care and household help.
It is a fact that you have up to three years to make a claim so you do not have to worry if you have not started your personal injury claim off straight away. However, it is always a good idea to start as soon as you can so that all the relevant records are easy to access.
