We all know, or think we know something about personal injury law. However, you’ll be surprised about how much you might have missed. If you live in South Oxfordshire compensation claims can be far more complicated than you might think. Here are a few of the more common misconceptions people have.
I’ll have to go to court
Let’s start with some happy news. Most people understandably dread the prospect of appearing in court, but the chances are you won’t have to. More often than not the other side will come back with a settlement offer if they decide that they don’t stand a very good chance of winning.
If this happens it will be down to you to decide whether or not you want to continue with the claim or cash out now. To do this you need to know whether or not that settlement offer is a realistic one.
Right away there are some assumptions one might be tempted to make. All insurance companies want to get away with as little damage to their own finances as possible, so the chances are that they will come up with an offer which is significantly below the full amount of compensation you could potentially claim.
This is why it’s a good idea to get an early compensation estimate to find out how much you can potentially receive. This is something we always do at Accident Advice Helpline – it’s all simply part of our service. Our estimate is not intended to be anything more than a rough guide, but it is very helpful in allowing you to set benchmarks from which you can work your way forward.
It’ll be easy
Never underestimate how tough the case might prove to be. While it is true that most claims are settled out of court, even the most simple case can have complications somewhere down the line and some can last for several years. If this happens you’ll need a law firm on your side which has enough provisions to finance a prolonged campaign to get the compensation you need.

Better still we can do so on the basis of no win no fee. This means that the financial risks you take when making a claim are substantially reduced. Think of it as a back up plan. If you don’t win then at least you won’t be left with any nasty legal fees to cover.
