    "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."

    There are a number of reasons which people can claim personal injury compensation. However, many people each year miss out on claiming compensation because of a lack of awareness of their rights as well as the eligibility criteria. We explore some of the reasons why people are missing out below in order to help dispel some myths about personal injury claims.

    They don’t think that they can qualify

    When people see an advert for personal injury claims or read about someone who was successful, they think ‘that doesn’t apply to me’. However, anyone who has been in an accident which was caused by someone else has the potential to make a claim for compensation and it’s worth checking with a lawyer just in case.

    They think they’ve run out of time

    Many people believe that in order to make a personal injury claim, the process needs to be started as soon as you’ve had the accident. This isn’t true. You are eligible to make a claim up to three years following an accident, with even longer time-frames for minors and those who are victims of industrial diseases. Don’t be put off because you didn’t enquire straight away, check the details of your accident and you may fall within the right time limit.

    They’re worried about the cost

    In most cases which require a lawyer, legal fees can be expensive with many people choosing not to pursue legal action, especially if they think that they might not win. Accident Advice Helpline however, offers 100% no win, no fee which means that it’s always worth checking to see if you have a claim.

    They think the process will be difficult

    Because Accident Advice Helpline is a specialist in personal injury claims, they have developed ways of making claims as easy as possible for their clients. In most instances, claims can be processed over the phone without the need for complicated paperwork or court appearances. Their advisors will guide you every step of the way to ensure that the process is as hassle free as possible.
