    "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."

    Oxford compensation


    Every year there are thousands of personal injury claims launched all around the UK, but between them they often are underpaid significant sums of compensation because they make simple mistakes. In this article we’ll show you how for anyone living in Oxford, compensation claims need to be handled in the right way. If you make a mistake, you’ll pay for it somewhere down the line.

    Oxford compensation claims

    It’s always important that you understand as much about the territory as possible. There’s no need to become an expert in personal injury law over night, but what you can do is gain enough knowledge to know something about what you’re discussing. You’d be surprised how many people make the simple error of seeking out a lawyer without doing any background research whatsoever.

    Those people are just begging to lose out. For starters they may find themselves not even consulting a lawyer. If you’re injured you may be contacted by your own insurance company who reassure you that they can sort it all out for you. There’s an obvious problem here – while your insurance company may be experts in insurance that’s about all they know. The chances are that what compensation you do receive will probably be drastically underpaid.

    Getting the wrong type of lawyer

    Even if you do consult a lawyer there is a chance it might not be the right one. An alarming number of people never ask us one important question: ‘have you worked with my type of claim before?’ Now, in the case of Accident Advice Helpline, the answer to that is always yes because we have so many different lawyers on our books, all over the country who are able to cater for literally any type of personal injury claim. However not every firm does. Most will specialise in certain areas of personal injury law. If they are reputable they should not attempt to take on a case in which they have only limited experience, but not every law firm is so discerning. Some may see an opportunity to take the money and run.

    Cashing out too soon

    Other people make the mistake of accepting a settlement too soon. If the opposition believes that they do not stand much chance of winning they may well attempt to offer a fee to avoid going to court. This may well be less than you’d actually be entitled to, so it’s a good idea to have sound advice telling you how much you’re likely to win in the event that you win your case.

    Paying for your claim

    Finally, if you live in Oxford a compensation claim can be extremely expensive which is why it’s such a good idea to only choose firms who work on the basis of no win, no fee. That’s what we do at Accident Advice Helpline and it’s always been crucial to how we go about our work.
