    Whiplash injury in Elgol

    Why do so many people fail to claim for a whiplash injury in Elgol?

    A lot of people are shocked to discover that only three in every ten people get the compensation they are entitled to when they have suffered a personal injury claim. This is not because most cases result in a failure. Actually, most people never get that far in the first place. Keeping that in mind, in this post we will take a look at two of the main reasons why people fail to claim for a whiplash injury in Elgol…


    Lack of Knowledge


    First and foremost, one of the main reasons why so many people fail to make a claim for a whiplash injury in Elgol is because of a lack of knowledge. Many individuals do not even realize they are entitled to compensation in the first place. This is usually because whiplash injuries tend to result in a full recovery within a few weeks or months. Nonetheless, just because your injuries are minor does not mean you are not entitled to compensation. You simply need to be able to prove the following…

    High Costs


    The second reason why a lot of individuals in the UK fail to claim for a whiplash injury in Elgol is because of the costs that are associated with using a traditional solicitor. You even have to pay for a consultation! And, then there is the worry that you do not win your case, and thus you have spent money on a service to essentially receive nothing in return. Because of this, a lot of people don’t bother making a claim, especially as the high start-up costs put a big hurdle in the way for many. Nevertheless, this is another benefit associated with using Accident Advice Helpline. We only use no win no fee solicitors. You don’t need any money to begin your claim and financial risk is eradicated.
