There are often worries in the UK about the move towards a supposed “accident compensation culture” in which people are encouraged to sue over anything so that they can receive millions in compensation and retire to a warm, tropical island somewhere. It is easy to recognise this idea as ludicrous with a little thought.
In reality, accident claims do not provide people with enough compensation to live a life of luxury, they supply them with the money necessary for them to live a normal life after the accident, be that in the region of a few thousand pounds or a few million.
Following on from this it is easy to see the accident solicitors and the services they offer exist to help you. If you have been hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault, whether it’s at work, on the road, on private or public property, then it’s only right that the person responsible for the accident should bear the burden of any costs you incur.
Particularly helpful to this is the existence of ‘No Win No Fee’ and ‘Win No Fee’, which mean that even those without the finances to gain access to a lawyer can seek justice; the person responsible for the accident pays any legal bills.
This system means that nobody has to suffer because of an accident somebody else caused. If you suffer injuries in a case like this then you’ll be covered for any medical costs you have to pay, any wages lost and any other potential issues that come up.
If you’ve been involved in an accident then you’ll already have had to deal with any pain or injuries that happened as a result of it. You may have even suffered long term damage that will continue to impede you for years. In cases like this, it’s obvious that some sort of compensation is necessary and most injury claims will take into account any pain suffered by the victim, especially ongoing pain.
There are other things associated with an accident that you may not have thought of though. Although you are entitled to claim for any physical suffering that was caused, you can also factor in the cost of any adjustments that will have to be made to your home or transport if you have suffered a debilitating injury such as paralyzation or severe brain damage. These adjustments to your home can quickly become expensive and it’s important they are factored into your claim.
Even if you haven’t suffered any lasting injuries, you can still claim for any wages lost during the time that you were injured, or any additional costs that were accrued through not being able to drive or travel.
Taking everything into consideration can quickly become a complex and daunting task, which is why there are No Win No Fee Accident Specialists available who are trained in every aspect of these claims and back that up with a huge amount of experience. Add to that a £300 cash advance and a 98% success rate and you know you’re in good hands.
