Despite the fact that a successful compensation claim will provide you with the support you need to get back on track following an accident in Pimlico, there are a number of myths surrounding the work that we do here at Accident Advice Helpline.
These myths may prevent you from seeking advice on your legal and moral right to claim compensation. To help you to separate fact from fiction, we have dispelled some of these myths below:
Myth: To walk away with a fair compensation, I will need to attend a full court hearing
You will not necessarily have to attend a court hearing in order to obtain compensation. The vast majority of personal injury claims are resolved before court proceedings are issued.
Myth: If I claim for an accident at work, my employer will lose out financially
If you have been unlucky enough to suffer an accident at work, you have a legal right to claim compensation for your injuries and financial losses. Your employer should by law have purchased liability insurance to protect against the cost of workplace accident claims, so if you choose to make a claim, your employer’s insurance company will cover the cost of your claim.
Myth: A personal injury claim will help me to supplement my income
Your accident lawyer in Pimlico will help you to claim the money to which you are entitled. In assessing the size of your compensation settlement, he or she will take into account a range of factors, including the nature and severity of your injuries and the extent of your financial losses and expenses. To receive compensation, you will need to provide evidence of your injuries and financial losses. You may have heard of claimants receiving thousands of pounds for their injuries. However, their monetary losses may have been significant.
Myth: I do not need to hire a personal injury lawyer in Pimlico because the guilty party’s insurance company will provide me with a fair compensation settlement
Insurance companies are run for profit, which means that it is not in their interest to provide you with a fair compensation settlement. To receive the maximum possible compensation settlement for the injuries you have sustained, you should seek guidance from a personal injury lawyer in Pimlico.
To hire the services of a 100% no-win, no-fee* accident lawyer in Pimlico, please call our Freephone helpline and discuss your claim with one of our trained claims advisors.
