5 reasons why you should make a claim for a severe injury
If you’ve been severely injured at work, been involved in a road traffic accident, or had a slip, trip or fall, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. But there are reasons why people don’t proceed with their claim, often because of common myths about claim companies.
Here, we tell you the facts about processing a claim and why you should contact us as soon as possible:
1. It’s too expensive
Accident Advice Helpline make the process of proceeding with a claim so simple. First of all, you just need to take our free 30 second test on the homepage to see if you can make a claim. Secondly, the solicitors for severe injury no win no fee policy means there is no financial risk in proceeding with the claim and nothing to pay up front. They will work hard to give you the best possible chance of winning your case, so you have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
2. It happened a long time ago
Although it does help to get in touch with us as soon as the accident takes place, we can help you win compensation for an accident at work, a car collision or a fall up to 3 years after the incident took place. The most important thing is that you sought medical attention for your injuries. If you did, we can use these medical records to prove that the injuries you have sustained were a direct result of the accident you were involved in. You may be required to take an additional medical examination depending on your solicitors for severe injury no win no fee case – they will let you know if this will be necessary.
3. I don’t have the time
When you think of a court case, you may think of years of drawn out battles, endless paperwork and stressful arguments. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Put the kettle on, sit back, relax and let Accident Advice Helpline take care of everything for you. Often, the whole solicitors no win no fee case can be handled completely over the phone so you don’t need to go anywhere. Our professional legal team will even take the case to court for you, so you won’t need to be present during the hearing. The whole process really couldn’t be simpler, you’ll wonder why you didn’t call us sooner.
4. I would feel guilty for the other party
This is understandable, but this is exactly why we have insurance policies. If you were involved in a car accident, motor insurance will protect the responsible party and will be paid by them. If you have had an accident in the workplace, there’s no risk to your job, you can’t be sacked for making a claim. All companies in the UK have a legal obligation to protect themselves will liability insurance. Your claim will be paid through this insurance should you win the case. If you have a slip, trip or fall in a public place that was no fault of your own, your payout will come from the council involved in the incident location.
5. The driver was uninsured
This can be frustrating and is illegal, but don’t worry. The Motor Insurer’s Bureau exists to cover your claim costs and ensure you get the compensation you deserve. Another scenario that solicitors for severe injury no win no fee cases are based on is where the driver fled the scene and are now not traceable. Again, there are still ways that your experienced legal team can fight your claim and get you back some compensation for the injuries you sustained through no fault of your own.
