Compensation claims in Wyre
If you have never been injured in an accident that was not your own fault, you could well be wondering what compensation claims in Wyre are. Injuries, particularly serious ones, can have life changing effects, put you through much pain and suffering and cause you trauma and financial hardship. UK law says that if someone else was the cause of this happening to you, they should financially compensate you. It says that you should not be out of pocket, and should have the money to deal with whatever adaptions you need to make to your life.
This is why innocent victims of accidents make compensation claims in Wyre, and all over the rest of the UK.
The accidents you can claim for
Any accident comes within the scope of personal injury claims, as long as it was not your fault. There are some that are more common than others though, the main three being:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
The injuries you can claim for
The law says that you can claim for any injury that needed medical attention. Some victims don’t make a claim because they think their injury is not serious enough. However, if you had whiplash or maybe a broken arm, you would need medical attention and so could make a claim.
You have three years to claim
There is a time limit for making your claim, and for most accidents this is three years. There are several exceptions to this rule, just a sample of them being:
- If you were a minor at the time of the accident and no one made a claim for you, you have three years from your 18th birthday to start your claim.
- If you are suffering from an industrial illness, as they can take years to manifest themselves, you have three years from the date of diagnosis.
- Accidents at sea or in the air have a two year time limit.
- If you are a family member claiming for fatal injuries of a loved one, you have three years from the date of death, provided the deceased died within three years of the accident.
