    Public transport accident in Kirklees


    There are many reasons why people fail to make claims for personal injuries sustained in accidents. Most of them however are unfounded. What would you do if you suffered a public transport accident in Kirklees? We examine some of the common reasons why people choose not to make compensation claims, to help provide you with more information about the process and what a claim can be used for below.

    Misinformation about seeking compensation

    There are many reasons why people choose not to make a claim for their personal injuries, and a lot of it comes down to a lack of understanding about the process. Points of confusion often include:

    It’s been too long after an accident

    You don’t have to file a claim immediately after an accident. In fact, some injuries may not present themselves until sometime after an accident. The truth is that you have up to three years to make a claim, so even if your accident was a while ago, you could still be eligible.

    Not knowing what to claim for

    It is unfair to expect an individual to be out of pocket for an accident that wasn’t their fault. An accident could leave you unable to work and therefore without an income, leave you with medical expenses and travel expenses – all of which you may struggle to manage. Accident claims cover more than just the injuries themselves and could provide a financial boost to your family.

    Worries about paying legal fees if the case is unsuccessful

    One of the things we are proudest of here at Accident Advice Helpline is the fact that we offer a 100% no win, no fee guarantee to our clients. What this means is that you won’t have any legal fees to pay to your solicitor if your claim is rejected – so if you’ve been putting off making a claim for this reason, this should ease your concerns.

    Worries about having to go to court

    Another misconception about accident claims is that they involve a lengthy court case. In fact, most claims processed by us are processed over the phone, with no forms to fill in and a minimal chance that you’ll have to go to a hearing. We aim to make the process easier for our clients and let them get on with their recovery.
