    Road Traffic Accidents in Bathgate


    Did you know that road traffic accidents in Bathgate that are caused by someone else could result in a compensation claim – meaning that you could be awarded a payout?

    Today, many people are aware of this, because personal injury law firms have extensive coverage in the media – but not always for good reasons.

    However, a lot of the negative coverage actually stems from fundamental misconceptions about claiming. One popular idea is that it is “too easy” to be able to make a claim; another is that people get awarded massive payouts that bear no relation to the accident that actually happened.

    These ideas are incorrect – and here’s why!

    First of all, only those who have been in accidents – such as road traffic accidents in Bathgate – that led to personal injury and were caused by someone else, may claim.

    If you caused the accident, you’re probably ineligible to make a claim; if you didn’t suffer any injury, likewise!

    Secondly, the things that determine the size of a payout are the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that the claimant has experienced as a result of the accident, and the expenses that they have incurred as a result of the accident.

    Large payouts may be made in cases where people need major long-term care as a direct result of the accident, but every payout is carefully calculated and will only cover out-of-pocket costs!

    Thinking about claiming for road traffic accidents in Bathgate? Go ahead!

    If you were unsure about claiming compensation, perhaps because of the misconceptions mentioned above, but you’re now thinking about it, then that’s great – we’d love to hear from you at Accident Advice Helpline!

    All you have to do is pick up the phone and dial 0800 689 0500, and you can talk to an adviser straight away. That’s our number for landlines – if you’re on a mobile, either call 0333 500 0993 or text “claim365” to 88010.

    How does the claiming process work?

    Your advisor will tell you all about it when you call and they take your details in a professional and friendly manner, displaying sensitivity and empathy towards you at all times – but we can summarise it here for you.

    Firstly, if you’re eligible to claim for road traffic accidents in Bathgate, your details will be given to one of our ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors.

    The solicitor will then work on your behalf, dealing with the relevant agencies (such as insurance companies), with the aim of securing you your payout.

    For the claim to proceed, you will need to go for an additional medical assessment – and to ensure you get the best possible payout, we will need your expenses receipts and records of your medical treatment.

    The final stage is that you will either receive a payout, or your claim will be unsuccessful. We think it’s definitely worth trying!

    For more information, call our 24/7 hotline now. We look forward to hearing from you.
