Lewisham is one of London’s inner boroughs, and is fairly large – it stretches from the southern bank of the Thames into the south-eastern suburbs of the capital. There are many busy roads in Lewisham, including the South Circular – and unsurprisingly, road traffic accidents in Lewisham are bound to occur.
Some accidents are minor, but it’s not uncommon for a serious one to happen. Whatever the case may be, did you know that, if you are in an accident and it is someone else’s fault, you could make a compensation claim?
What do people think about claiming for road traffic accidents in Lewisham?
There is much that is misunderstood about claims. Personal injury law firms don’t exactly get good press, and this is unfortunate, because the good firms – such as ours, Accident Advice Helpline – are in the business to help people.
When we started, back in 2000, we made sure that we stuck to four key principles in everything we did: integrity, dependability, reliability and accountability. We have continued to abide by these fundamental principles, and as a result, we’ve gained many satisfied clients.
Despite this, a lot of people believe that there is something perhaps unsavoury about claiming. “Compensation culture” is one phrase that is in common use.
There’s nothing wrong with getting what is rightfully yours!
Consider this. When road traffic accidents in Lewisham are caused by someone else, you could end up without the use of your vehicle while it is in for repairs (or, worse, written off!). Not only that, but you’re also dealing with your injuries, which could mean some time off work.
Being off work means that you might lose wages, and being unable to perform your usual tasks might mean that you need to hire a home help or childminder – and their services cost money.
The result? Hardship. How can it be wrong for you, the person who wasn’t at fault, to get your money back? The money you lost in wages and spent on services?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we think it is right and fair that you get your money back, and that you are able to face the future without having to worry about your finances.
