We all think we understand about personal injury law thanks to the sheer number of advertisement for claims firms on the TV at the moment, but many of the things we think we know do not actually apply. Therefore, if you’re looking for Cheltenham, no win no fee lawyers, take time to think about these common misconceptions which may end up harming your chances of making a successful personal injury claim.
Cheltenham, no win no fee claims
The first thing to address is the seemingly widespread conviction that the majority of injuries do not actually entitle you to make a personal injury claim. According to various statistics only a small portion of people who have an accident ever claim the compensation they could have received. That’s a shame because it means a lot of people are going without the help and support which could help them get their lives back on track. This is something we’re committed to addressing at the Accident Advice Helpline, which is why we’re working so hard to ensure everyone understands what they’re entitled to.
The law states that as long as you can show that an injury had a measurably negative affect on your quality of life you may well be able to claim compensation. In most cases this will mean an injury which required medical treatment of some sort so it could be something relatively minor such as whiplash. The claim amount may not be massive, but it is something to provide realistic restitution to you for what you’ve missed out on and the suffering you’ve had to go through.
Going to court
When people think of making a personal injury claim they have pictures of themselves being dragged through the legal system. Nobody really wants that to happen so it should come as a relief to know that in the vast majority of cases it will not. In most cases the other side will admit defeat early. They will try to offer a settlement fee, which can avoid the expense of going to court. If this happens it will be up to you to decide whether you want to accept this or keep pressing forward with a claim. This is why we work so hard in giving you as much information as possible so you’ll know whether this offer is realistic or not.
Paying for a claim
The good news is that you probably won’t have to pay for a compensation claim if you lose your case. That’s because firms such as Accident Advice Helpline will help you find Cheltenham, no win no fee lawyers. This means you won’t be forced into financial difficulty because you decided to make a claim.
