    Fact or Fiction? Some common compensation myths debunked…

    Many people are ‘put off’ from claiming compensation with our expert lawyer in Ledbury simply because they have received misinformation about the whole process and how it works.

    Read on and find out if compensation is due to you…

    Fact or Fiction? You can claim for any injury

    To a certain extent, this is true but on the other hand, you do need to be aware that there are some considerations that need to be taken into account.

    Personal injury law in the UK is clear – if you have been hurt through no fault of your own, you could have a claim for compensation. BUT, this injury or injuries must be ‘significant’ enough to have sought and received medical treatment.

    Hence when people say that you can claim for a cut finger, unless you have received medical attention and treatment, then you may find that our lawyer in Ledbury might not be able to help…

    Fact or Fiction? Everyone claims compensation these days for everything…

    On one hand, the media and other outlets would have members of the public believe that everyone is claiming compensation for the smallest thing, even suggesting that some people are claiming for injuries that might not altogether genuine.

    However, research has shown that as many as 7 out of 10 people who do have an eligible compensation claim using an expert lawyer in Ledbury and other solicitors, do NOT claim the compensation they are entitled to.

    This could be because they do not want to claim, or maybe they didn’t know how to make a claim but to suggest that the compensation culture is endemic seems an exaggeration.

    Fact or Fiction? Claiming compensation makes insurance so much more expensive…

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our lawyer in Ledbury rather than focusing on the cost of insurances looks at the person and their situation behind the claim for compensation.

    For example…

    • The child with brain damaged, caused by negligence at birth; the parents face a lifetime of expensive care for the child – who pays?
    • The elderly lady crossing the road, knocked over by a car because the driver was late for work; the lady has a broken hip – who pays?
    • The cyclist left with brain damage and personality ‘disorder’ after being knocked form his bike by someone opening their car door – who will foot his medical bills?

    There are countless examples of people hurt, through no fault of their own, who need the compensation they have rightfully claimed.

    Fact or Fiction? It costs and arm and a leg to claim compensation with a lawyer in Ledbury…

    Fiction! To find out, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 – And they always work 100% on a no win no fee basis!
