Injury lawyer in All Stretton: Compensation myths
Myth 1 – It costs money
Here at AAH we don’t charge upfront fees but rather spend the time instead, assessing your claim and helping to select the right, specialist injury lawyer in All Stretton for you and your case.
Myth 2 – You can claim for anything these days
No this is not true! Bogus claims made for disingenuous injuries fail at the first few assessment hurdles. Likewise, an injury lawyer in All Stretton will also be able to detect a scam, refusing to take the case to court.
Myth 3 – Every claim ends up in the courts
No. Rarely do compensation claims have to go to court. Only the most complex of cases that are highly contested go to court. More often than not, an injury lawyer will be able to resolve your compensation claim through negotiation rather than through the court.
Myth 4 – all cases must have a medical assessment
No. Only complex cases, with far reaching medical conditions and injuries may need to be assessed by an independent medical examiner. However, your injury lawyer may not be able to continue your case for compensation if you have not sought medical advice for your injuries.
Myth 5 – you can claim for cuts and bruises
If you intend making a compensation claims for injuries, you will need to have had these medically examined, showing you have sought treatment and advice. This may be for cuts, bruises and swelling or you may, unfortunately, have been hospitalised. You cannot self diagnose or self medicate in a compensation case.
