Every year, people get injured in road traffic accidents in Greenock because of someone else’s actions or negligence – and some of these accident victims don’t claim. Why not?
Awareness of the right to claim
Some people aren’t aware that they have the right to claim. If you’re reading this now, you might be aware that you are eligible to claim for a road traffic accident – but was it always that way? Did you once think that claims were just for injuries caused by falling off ladders or slipping on a polished floor?
The truth is, victims of road traffic accidents in Greenock have just as much right to claim as people who have had accidents at work involving machinery, or accidents involving slips and falls. Provided the other driver caused your injuries, you are eligible.
The “compensation culture” argument
On the other hand, there is a school of thought that it’s too easy to claim. You’ve probably heard things such as “people claim for the slightest thing nowadays and get massive payouts just for a few injuries”!
At Accident Advice Helpline, we disagree with this view. Claims can be made for genuine accidents only – there are strict criteria to determine who qualifies.
As for the amounts paid, victims receive an element for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, and another element for expenses incurred as a result of their accident – nothing more!
We believe that people shouldn’t have to experience financial hardship as a result of road traffic accidents in Greenock that were not their fault – and we also believe that they should be compensated for the trauma that they have experienced. It can take some time for things to get back to normal after an accident!
