    Myths about compensation in Brentwood

    There are plenty of myths about compensation in Brentwood

    If you have been hurt in an accident, it will not take you long to realise that there are plenty of myths about compensation in Brentwood and about everywhere else in the country. These myths may dissuade you from making a claim for personal injury compensation, but if you are struggling to cope after your accident, you really should not let them get in your way.

    Here are a few of the myths that we here at the Accident Advice Helpline often hear about the claims process, along with the truths behind them.

    1. Hiring a solicitor is expensive
      It is a common misconception that personal injury solicitors are expensive, and in particular, more expensive than solicitors in different fields of practice. While some solicitors do cost the earth, the team here at the Accident Advice Helpline work on 100% no win, no fee basis, which means that they can help you to take legal action without incurring a high cost.
    2. Getting personal injury compensation is easy
      You can file a claim for personal injury compensation without professional help. However, it is highly likely that you will walk away with less compensation than you deserve. If you want to recoup the cost of all your losses, you will need to work with our team of solicitors.
    3. Receiving professional advice is not always the best recipe for success
      While the majority of the accidents that occur in cause some degree of injury, not all injuries qualify legally as personal injuries. When you contact us about your claim, we will assess your chances of success and if we feel that you do not have grounds for compensation, we will not lead you astray. As we handle claims on a 100% no win, no fee basis, we will only take on your claim if we feel you have a strong chance of success.
