Common misconceptions about head injury claims in Scotland
If you have suffered a head injury because of the careless attitude of another person, you might want to file head injury claims in Scotland in order to receive compensation for the physical and mental trauma that you have been put through. Head injuries can cause permanent damage, or can result in incapacity for a considerable period of time. Regardless, for the strain that you have been put through, the law gives you the right to file for compensation. However, people are often worried about filing for compensation, generally because others have created numerous rumours when it comes to head injury claims in Scotland. Here are some of the most common misconceptions regarding claims filed for head injuries:
Head injury claims in Scotland- Common instances
“A lot of money is required”
One of the most common misconceptions that people have is that filing head injury claims in Scotland requires a lot of money. Having been in the field of law practising for over 10 years, Accident Advice Helpline has received countless enquiries from people who are wondering whether it takes money to file a complaint. However, the cases we take on are resolved on a conditional fee agreement. This agreement states that payment to the attorney will only be made once you win the case. This means that as long as your case has real substance to it, you won’t be left out of pocket.
“It requires a lot of time and hassle”
A large number of people also believe that filing head injury claims in Scotland requires them to go through a lot of hassle. Visits to the court, regular visits to your legal representatives are all considered to be an issue for many people. Yet, in reality, all you have to do is to talk to your legal representative and explain everything to them in detail. A doctor will make a careful analysis of your head injury and determine the amount of damage that might have been sustained, and then your legal representative will handle everything regarding your head injury claims in Scotland, and they will update you regularly on the situation.
“The party with greater influence usually wins”
This is a very common misconception in most people’s minds. If you are filing for compensation from a party that holds more influence and power, it is understandable that you’d be apprehensive about failure. However, at Accident Advice Helpline, we have been helping the party on the side of the truth in winning their cases, and with the right evidence and documents, it is usually the party on the side of the truth that wins the case.
Accident Advice Helpline is a well-estabished, reputable company with over a decade of experience, so we have experience in a wide variety of compensation claims and we know how to help our clients win.
