Although many people that have been involved in an accident that wasn’t there fault are fully entitled to make an accident compensation claim, a lot of them are hesitant to call an accident compensation helpline for a number of fears or concerns.
One thing that you need to remember is that thousands of claim’s are made everyday. They’re not a rare occurrence. Although it’s likely to be a completely new process to you, it’s not something that you need to worry about. Making an accident compensation claim is usually a necessity for your future, for example, if you’re unable to work due to your accident and thus need an income. With that being the case, you really need to get over the fear of making an accident claim for the sake of your future. And this article should help.
In this article we’ll take a look at some of the fears and concerns many people have about making an accident compensation claim, and hopefully relieve any worries you have.
Here are some common questions that arise among people concerned about making an accident compensation claim:
Do I Need To Understand The Legal Issues When Making A Claim? The answer to this question is “no”. That’s what accident compensation solicitors are there for. They are there to guide you through the process and will handle any complex, legal paperwork on your behalf. You can’t be expected to know the ins and outs of the legal matters, and you won’t be.
Will I Need To Have Money To Make A Claim? Again, the answer to this question is “no”. Companies have to work on a “no win, no fee” basis, so in the chance that you aren’t successful, you won’t have to pay anything. On top of that, even if you do win your accident claim, all solicitors fees and other expenses will be recovered from the other side. So whether you’re successful or not, you don’t need to worry about this costing you a fortune.
If I Make A Work Related Claim, Is My Job Still Safe? It is actually against the law for a company to dismiss an employee based on them making an accident compensation claim. But a side from that, the company that you work for would have been required to have accident claim insurance, so it will be the insurance company that pays, not your employer directly. This will avoid any hard feelings against you, so you shouldn’t worry about job security.
So hopefully this article answered some of the concerns you may have had regarding making an accident claim. Just remember that an accident compensation solicitor is there to make your life easier and guide you through the whole process of making a claim from the beginning to the end. You won’t have to stump up any of the cost, and there are laws and insurance policies in place to ensure that your job is not affected in any way if you’re making a work related accident compensation claim.
