    Three Reasons Why People Don’t Claim for a Whiplash Injury in Kirkwall

    People are often shocked to discover that there is a startling number of people throughout the UK that would have been entitled to compensation, yet they never claimed in the first place. This post explores three of the main reasons why individuals never claim for the whiplash injury in Kirkwall they have suffered…

    The Hassle

    First and foremost, one of the main reasons why people never make a personal injury claim is because they believe it is going to be a long, stressful and drawn out process. They don’t want to go through all of this, especially when they are coping with the injury itself. However, it doesn’t have to be this way, and it won’t be if you use Accident Advice Helpline. Our solicitors are the best of the best and will ensure stress is kept at a minimum. Moreover, it is worth pointing out that very few cases (less than three per cent) actually end up in a courtroom.

    The Costs

    Aside from this, another reason why people do not make a claim for a whiplash injury in Kirkwall is because of the costs. They assume that it will cost them a small fortune to hire a solicitor, and then what happens if your claim is not successful? All that money would have gone down the drain. This is why it is advisable to go for a no win no fee solicitor. If you do this you will not need a penny to begin your claim and financial risk is eliminated. All of our solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline work on a no win no fee basis.

    The Unknown

    The final reason why people don’t claim for the whiplash injury in Kirkwall they have sustained is because they don’t actually realise they have the basis for a compensation claim in the first place. Generally, you merely need the following to be true for your claim to be a success – the incident was not your fault, it occurred in the last three years and you saw a medical professional for your injuries.
