There are a lot of myths associated with road accident claims in Thurrock. People who are thoroughly entitled to make claims after an accident are put off doing so because of their own misconceptions and misunderstandings, or the views of people who have had poor experiences of their own in the past.
At Accident Advice Helpline we aim to make the whole process as simple and stress-free as possible. You’re already confused and mentally tired after the accident so the last thing you need is to get even more worn down by complicated forms and legal proceedings in court.
As mentioned, there are a lot of misunderstandings around compensation claims; mostly because people have been fortunate enough in their lives – up until that point – where they haven’t had to make a claim.
This means they don’t know what is involved so they speak to friends and family who, depending on their own experiences, give a range of answers and explanations.
Common misunderstandings around road accident claims in Thurrock
One such misconception is that road accident claims in Thurrock take a lot of work and time before you see any of the compensation. While it’s true that you’re not going to win your case overnight, it’s not going to take several years for the case to settle like many believe.
In the majority of situations a case tends to settle within 8 to 12 months depending on the complexity of the case, but your own personal injury lawyer, who would be assigned to you upon accepting your claim, would handle all that.
Another misunderstanding is that it’s an expensive process to even get the case started. When you start talking about lawyers, people immediately think about the cost. The best legal representation can make the difference between winning a case and losing one, and that’s often why people pay so much to have a top lawyer on their side.
In our personal injury cases, however, we work on a no-win no-fee* basis, meaning that you don’t have to pay a single penny to get your case started. If you’re eligible to claim (and you can find out if you are within 30 seconds thanks to a test on our website), then we would take your details and look at your medical report…that’s it, that’s all we need.
