Common myths about claiming compensation in Epsom and Ewell
Compensation claims are made on a regular basis. Sadly, accidents occur daily thanks to the fast pace of modern life. Myths about claiming compensation in Epsom and Ewell abound.
Victims rightly want to get the money they deserve for the suffering they have encountered. Nonetheless, one issue is that there tends to be a lot of misinformation on the Internet.
We aim to put this misinformation to bed in this post by revealing some of the most common myths.
Claims are time consuming and complicated
The thought of complicated procedures and a long wait for justice prevent many accident victims from making a compensation claim.
Our expert personal injury lawyers go all out to provide a stress free service. Solicitors that work on a no win no fee* basis, as ours do, have no wish to drag the claim out.
Most claims are settled within the year. Moreover, we aim to make the process as hassle-free and stress-free as possible. You need not worry about it being complex.
You have to go to court
This is one of the biggest myths regarding personal injury compensation. In fact, did you know that less than three per cent of cases end up in a courtroom? Of course there are no guarantees and every case is different. Nonetheless, it is highly unlikely that your compensation claim will end up going to court. If this happens your lawyer will be by your side.
You will get sacked if you make a claim against your employer
Of course, every employer is different. Nonetheless, if your employer is liable for the injuries you have experienced, it is their duty to ensure you are compensated. They all know of their responsibility to provide a safe working environment.
Moreover, if your employer were to sack you because of your claim, you would then have grounds for unfair dismissal.
Your employer will know of this and avoid another expensive outcome. Employers are also insured against compensation claims so you won’t be ruining a business by making a claim.
It’s better to wait for treatment until after the case is settled
This is one of the worst myths out there! Don’t jeopardise your health – it certainly won’t help your case. In fact, if you don’t see a medical professional for your injuries as soon as you can after your accident, you will struggle to make a successful claim.
