Media Stunts For An Injury Claim
by: Mohammad Latif
The claims culture arrived in the UK and it was chaos. Door canvassers and telesales, knocking and ringing constantly for an injury claim.
Have you had an accident injury in the last 3 years? It went ballistic, new companies evolving and new tricks came into place that would work against the victim.
Did you ever understand what was said before you signed the agreement? I guess not. ‘Don’t worry it doesn’t mean anything, the company will contact you and sort it out’. Did they ever?
Today there is so much jargon, i.e. crap out there that many people just ignore an injury compensation claim even if they need to claim compensation.
In the beginning it was always a helping hand with your accident claim, until it was settled, with insurance and loan deductions. Policies were taken out in thousands that always back fired. And guess who provide the financial funded policies? The BANK! It could have even been your own bank.
It didn’t help the victims as it was deducted from their compensation settlement, but surely helped the companies, who have now declared bankruptcy with millions ‘scoped’ from their victims. But today you have smaller companies doing a similar trick, we’ll do this and we’ll do that with their new format of technical small print.
Compensation Claim Culture Confusion
You’ll get confused just like food, these many calories, this much protein or fat. There is so much advertisement going around that you just think forget it, stick to what we normally do. Don’t take any action!
Compensation is an entitlement by law, for release of funds to the injured for being involved in an accident or being injured to some form. Accidents do occur, that’s life as nobodies perfect. But with the media filling our heads with different slogans, headlines and examples, we get more confused even when it all should mean the same thing.
On TV, there’s new advertisers showing victims of an accident injury and how they have had an accident. But what they don’t realise is, each accident is unique, so why portray victims as happy as they could ever be with their payouts. It’s a marketing stunt. But unfortunately many do fall for it.
An accident solicitor in personal injury claims should only handle your case, not a solicitor in conveyancing. So you need a solicitor with experience in the appropriate field to handle an accident claim for it to be successful.
Browsing from one site to another is not going to help as their technical jargon can to some extent be diluted. We’ll do this and we’ll do that. Find something simple that will help.
