A road accident in Angus and Dundee is just one of the many reasons why innocent victims could make personal injury claims, but only 3 out of every 10 do so.
There are various reasons given for this, but they are just speculation. However, they include the following.
You think you can’t afford to make a claim for a road accident in Angus and Dundee
This is a very common misconception, as until April 2000 it possibly was the case.
But the no-win, no-fee* agreement was introduced for personal injury claims, and now no-one has to consider finances before seeking damages.
Victims do not have to pay any money for the claim to be started or if the claim is lost, so they have nothing to lose for their legal fees by making a claim.
You feel it is too complicated having to deal with the big companies for a road accident in Angus and Dundee
It is usually an insurance company or other large organisation at the other end of a personal injury claim, that much is true.
But when Accident Advice Helpline handles your claim that is not a problem at all, we deal with them every day.
We know how they like your claim presented and how to make sure they give you a fair deal for your particular circumstances.
You believe it is not worth claiming for an Angus and Dundee road accident
No one can be certain before a claim is started just how much you will be awarded for your injuries. There are several factors that have to be taken into account, such as:
- The severity of your injuries
- Your recovery time
- The impact on your life
- Expenses incurred because of the accident
- Losses incurred because of the accident
These can differ greatly from victim to victim, but they all need to be looked at before a claim is made.
What victims can do is complete the 30-second test on our website. This lets them know if they have a valid claim, and if they do gives them an estimate of the award they could receive.
Quite often, it is when they realise just how much they are missing out on that victims decide to proceed with a claim.
