If you’ve been injured in an accident and somebody else was to blame, you could find you’re entitled to compensation. It doesn’t matter so much what type of accident you were in – a road traffic accident, a workplace accident or a slip, trip or fall, for example – as it does the type of injuries you sustained and who was at fault. If you’re wondering “Am I entitled to compensation?” then we’re here to help.
Am I entitled to compensation?
Yes, if somebody else caused an accident in which you were injured and you make a claim within the usual three-year period.
What other factors could influence your entitlement to compensation?
Rather than sitting around wondering “Am I entitled to compensation?” there are a few factors you should be aware of. If you can say yes to the following then you could find yourself in line to make a personal injury claim:
- Did your accident happen in the last three years?
- Was somebody else to blame?
- Did you seek medical attention for your injuries?
It doesn’t matter if you were injured in an accident at work, in a public place or some other type of accident – if somebody else was at fault then you could be entitled to claim compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. Our lawyers operate on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis which means there are no upfront legal fees to worry about – so anybody can afford to make a claim.
