Whether you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer in Aberdeen or anywhere else in the UK, we find that there are a lot of misconceptions floating around which can prevent people from getting the best possible service in their search for compensation. Here we’ve created a quick myth guide to help dispel some of the myths surrounding personal injury law.
1. Every case is the same
This is not true. While there are some general rules to follow such as: the question of blame, and whether the accident happened within the last three years, each claim is unique.
This is because the evidence will be different in each case and all accidents require a slightly different approach. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, for example, you’ll be looking to find a way of proving to the courts that the accident was not caused by your careless driving but was in-fact down to the driver of the other car.
If you’ve been hurt while at work you’ll want to show that the injury was caused by something the employer did or did not do which caused them to fall down in their duty of care to their employees
2. Making a claim is expensive
True, to a certain extent. In 1997 the government removed legal aid from anyone looking to make a claim This was a problem because it meant that many people felt excluded from the legal system.
They felt they were entitled to make a claim but didn’t know whether they could take the risk that they might not win and then find themselves confronted with a great big legal bill. It was an understandable fear, but one that need not apply when you use Accident Advice Helpline.
We’ll help you find a personal injury lawyer in Aberdeen or indeed anywhere else in the country who works on the basis of no-win, no-fee*. This means that if you use us then you will not have to pay a single penny for your legal support unless you win your case. That’s a great cause of reassurance to anyone when they’re looking to claim.
3. It’s complicated
When dealing with the legal system, people often appear to feel somewhat intimidated. This is because making a claim can bring you into contact with all sorts of jargon which you may feel ill equipped to fully understand However, when you work with us we only use plain English and we take on all the difficult bits. You may not even have to attend court and we’ll keep you fully posted on developments with your case.
