A guide to claiming compensation in Huntingdonshire
If you are thinking about claiming personal injury compensation in Huntingdonshire following an accident in Huntingdonshire then this short article will arm you with some useful information about the claim process.
Who can claim?
Anyone who has suffered a personal injury as a result of someone else’s negligence. So you can claim for:
- An injury sustained in an accident on the road, at work or in a public place
- An injury or illness caused by a faulty product, appliance or service
- A psychological illness following any accident, or because of stress at work
- An illness caused or exasperated because of inadequate medical care
If your injury or illness doesn’t fit into one of the categories above then don’t worry, it is by no means a comprehensive list! To check whether the cause of your injury or illness meets the criteria for claiming, call our helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone and one of our advisers will happily confirm whether or not you are entitled to claim compensation.
The amount of compensation you receive will depend on how serious your injury was, how it affected your life, and how much it cost you financially – you can claim back money spent on things like child care, travel expenses and private medical treatment so make sure that you keep evidence of your expenses.
