It’s a terribly confusing and hectic time in a person’s life if they’ve been a rather serious car accident, and that’s even if there weren’t any injuries, as dealing with the police insurers, car hire firms, garages, and everything else that goes along with getting the matter sorted to the point where you’ve got a working vehicle once more. Imagine now all that chaos and confusion, but with the added layer of complexity brought about by even just a mild or moderate injury such as minor whiplash: it’s nothing short of absolute bedlam.
keep calm and carry on
It’s all too easy to become overwhelmed in the event of an accident that resulted in your injury, especially if the damage done was severe enough to necessitate significant amounts of time missed from work because of your recovery needs. Trying to come up with solutions for all your everyday bills whilst out of work – and in constant pain from a bad injury – is disheartening in the extreme, and leads many people to turn to despair.
However, even if you don’t have any family or friends to rely upon during this difficult time, you don’t have to go it alone. In fact, you should feel encouraged to reach out to those who can help you solve your problems quickly and efficiently in a way that will enable you to have a modicum of financial stability while you recover from your injuries – and not only that, but you’re legally entitled to do so.
the role of a personal injury solicitor
Personal injury lawyers, the people standing betwixt an injured, out-of-work accident victim and total ruin are usually viewed with suspicion, or downright revulsion, simply because of a reputation they’ve unfairly earned as a result of a few bad apples. No win no fee solicitors are particularly viewed with distaste, as many blame the so-called ‘compensation culture’ gripping the UK on grasping, money-hungry solicitors that are willing to go to unethical lengths in order to line their pockets with insurers’ money, but the truth is that, like in any other profession, there are good lawyers and their are bad lawyers.
The vast majority of accident claim solicitors operating in the UK are highly educated, dedicated,and compassionate people that are in it less for the money and more because they want to help their clients and allow them to recover some of whatever it is they lost as a result of their injury. This usually takes the form of a personal injury compensation award that is designed to restore to the injured party, financially at least, whatever they have lost by being unable to work, and whether it be through a temporary injury such as whiplash or a permanent one such as the loss of a limb, personal injury lawyers fight hard to make sure you’re repaid at least a measure of what you have lost due to your involvement in an accident that was no fault of your own.
