Car crashes are among the most common of all road traffic accidents, many of them minor bumps that damage the cars but not the occupants. The drivers usually swap insurance details and claim from their insurance for the damage to their vehicles. This is standard procedure that happens loads of times every day of the week, so why do victims not do the same when the damage is to themselves rather than their car?
If they use the services of Accident Advice Helpline, making a personal injury claim in Bromley is not difficult at all, but still some shy away from claiming the compensation they are legally entitled to.
Why victims of car crashes do not make a personal injury claim in Bromley
The injuries sustained in car crashes can be very serious indeed and on average 5 people a days lose their lives on our roads. Victims do not always realise just how expensive being injured in an accident can be and that all these extra costs, and losses, can be recouped if their personal injury claim in Bromley is successful.
But there are several things that stop victims making a claim after they have been injured in a car crash, or any other type of accident that was not their fault, some of the suggestions being:
- They think they cannot afford the legal fees if they lose the claim – at Accident Advice Helpline, all the claims we handle are financed by the no win no fee agreement. This means that they do not have to find any money to start their claim or if it is lost, and this is the only way we can be sure that everyone has the option of claiming compensation.
- It takes too long – you will always read in the media about the cases that have taken many years. They are exceptional, and that is why they are reported. Mr Smith claiming for the whiplash he sustained in a rear end shunt, or Mrs Brown claiming for a broken arm for the car crash she was in, are very day occurrences, and not considered newsworthy. But these are the more normal types of claims and none of them will take years to settle.
- It’s not worth the effort – if victims use Accident Advice Helpline to make their claim, there is very little effort for them at all. Give us all the details, and we take it from there, leaving you to recover from your injuries.
- I don’t know how to make a claim – no problem at all, just call our freephone helpline on 0800 180 4123 and speak with our friendly advisors. They will give you all the information you need to decide if you want to proceed with a claim, and if you do they will put the wheels in motion.
These are all excuses, really there is a stigma attached to claiming compensation, and that is wrong. If someone causes your life to be totally changed and you to bear lots of extra expenses, why shouldn’t they pay for their actions?Open Claim Calculator
