    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Leigh Delamere


    Why does claiming compensation get such a bad press?

    Here in the UK, many people seem to have an issue with claiming compensation. Many people see the claiming of financial justice as a negative thing, something that has been imported from ‘across the pond’; many see it as spiralling out of control and maybe some of those who have successfully claimed as not deserving the cash.

    So with fairness and justice ringing in the ears, why are some people more willing to take on the compensation fight, whilst as many as 7 out of 10 people not making a claim for the money to which they are rightfully entitled to?

    But let’s turn the argument on its head and ask the question, why should you claim compensation? Our expert lawyer in Leigh Delamere thinks he may have the answer…

    Reimbursing the victim

    In order to claim compensation with Accident Advice Helpline and our lawyer in Leigh Delamere (in fact, with any solicitor or even if you represent yourself) there are clear points in personal injury law than must be met in order to claim compensation. What can also be included in this claim, is to be reimbursed for any expenses which you feel have been directly incurred as a result of the accident or injuries themselves. Prescription charges in England are a commonly used examples; victims often ask, ‘why should I be out of pocket?’

    Financial justice

    Some people see the opportunity to claim compensation with the help of a lawyer in Leigh Delamere as a way of seeking justice, albeit a financial one. For some victims, justice in the form of charges or imprisonment can be sadly lacking, therefore claiming compensation is one way of feeling that a wrong has been put right.

    The victim’s right

    All too often, our lawyer in Leigh Delamere hears the argument that the compensation culture is an import from American society. Usually aired by people who see little or no value in the process, claiming compensation for injury has been the victim’s right within British law for decades. What has held people back has been the inability of many innocent victims to be able to fund the compensation claim; law firms, like the Accident Advice Helpline, have been instrumental in making compensation a journey everyone can take by working under the ‘no win, no fee*’ agreement. This simply means no one needs to pay to start making a claim.

    Reluctance, bad press, embarrassment…

    … you name it and we have heard it here at Accident Advice Helpline as to why someone should not pursue something that is rightfully theirs.

    We don’t advocate this argument; here at Accident Advice Helpline, our lawyer in Leigh Delamere, along with all our colleagues, believe wholeheartedly in everyone claiming the compensation they deserve and are entitled to.
