After you have been involved in an accident, it can take some time to understand what has happened to you and even longer to decide what you should be doing about it. Thousands of people injured every year in accidents that are not their fault do nothing about it. It is in fact your right by law to be compensated for an injury received in an accident that was not your fault.
If you live in Wooton Bassett and want to make a compensation claim, there are plenty of local solicitors, like an injury lawyer in Wootton Bassett, as well as those who work on a national basis.
Why should you make a claim for compensation?
One of the first things you should consider when thinking of making a compensation claim is that the money received from accident compensation can help you to recover any financial losses that you have suffered following your injury, for example lost wages or medical expenses. Making a claim can also bring to light a dangerous situation and help to prevent others suffering the same fate. Your injury lawyer in Wootton Bassett will be able to explain this premise further.
Not many people think of this as a reason for making a claim, but if for example you were injured at work, making a claim can draw the attention of your employer to the situation causing your accident, and they can do something about rectifying it. If your injury happened after falling or slipping in a public place, then making a compensation claim can help to make sure that this doesn’t happen to someone else.
Should you claim?
There is absolutely no reason why you should not pursue your legal right to a compensation claim. It is a fact that many people who would greatly benefit from the services of a company like Accident Advice Helpline never make a claim, because they are worried about what other people may think. They do not wish to be seen as a fraud or a scrounger; this is actually a shame, as they are losing out on what is their right by law because of the few individuals who make fraudulent claims every year. Sadly, the actions of a few unscrupulous people have given the industry a tarnished image.
Accident Advice Helpline have been helping people to make successful claims for over ten years, and in our opinion anyone who has a bona fide right to a claim should be making one. A quick call with one of our trained advisors will establish your right to claim. They can be contacted 24 hours a day, seven days a week on our freephone helpline 0800 689 0500, or on 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
You are placed under no obligation during your call. Your advisor is there to help you and will ask a few questions to establish the facts behind your accident. They will be able to offer you an estimate of your potential payout, but this is of course only ever an estimate and cannot be guaranteed.
