    Myths about claiming in Lincoln

    Common myths about claiming in Lincoln – exposed!

    Have you hears these myths about claiming in Lincoln? Read on to get the real information that you need.

    You should wait until your case settles to get treatment

    This is a huge myth. In fact, the sooner you see a doctor and get the treatment you need, the better! Your health is the most pivotal thing and thus you need to attend to this as soon as possible. Moreover, if you do not see a medical professional you are actually hindering your accident claim, since there will be no proof of your injuries.

    You will get sacked by your employer if you make a case against them

    Most employers will not even consider this. After all, they are going to have insurance in place to cover them for such claims. Plus, if they were to fire you, you would then have grounds for unfair dismissal. Thus this is something you certainly should not be worried about.

    You don’t need a solicitor when you have insurers in place

    This is completely untrue. Insurers want to save costs when it comes to negotiating settlements. You need an experience solicitor on your side who is going to ensure you get the full amount of compensation you deserve. Without a solicitor you could miss out on a huge sum.

    Personal injury claims take years and years to settle

    This is not true. In fact, in most cases you will find that an accident claim in Lincoln takes a maximum of a year to settle. There is a general view that such claims are time consuming and complex, yet generally this isn’t the case.

    You will have to go to court to win compensation

    Again, this is highly unlikely. Of course it is impossible to say, as some cases do end up going to trial. But this is fewer than three per cent. It is actually in the interest of both parties to resolve the issue without taking a trip to court!

    Solicitors are simply out to take your money

    You can be sure this is not the case if you go for a no win no fee solicitor. After all, there is no benefit for them to simply take on any accident claim.
