Being injured in an accident is no laughing matter, and it can be even worse if you are injured through no fault of your own and somebody else is to blame. It isn’t always obvious who is at fault for an accident – other times it is perfectly obvious – but this really doesn’t matter. Provided you’re fairly confident that somebody else caused your accident, you may be able to make a claim for injury compensation within three years of your accident happening.
Can I claim injury compensation?
Yes, provided your accident happened in the last three years and somebody else was to blame, there’s a good chance you’ll be eligible to make a claim – and the best way to find out is to get expert advice.
What types of accidents can I claim for?
If you’re wondering whether you can claim injury compensation, it really depends on exactly what has happened – and how it happened. Most of us think of things like slipping on a wet floor or being injured in a car accident when it comes to making a personal injury claim, but did you know you could even claim for things like food poisoning or stress at work? If somebody else has been negligent and this has resulted in an accident which left you injured, you should be able to claim injury compensation. You’ll need advice from the experts, which is where Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
How much compensation could I get?
It’s difficult for us to give you an exact figure, or even an average figure, when it comes to personal injury compensation. That’s because each and every claim is very different and is handled on an individual basis. So whilst one person’s whiplash injury may attract a small settlement, somebody else may have suffered more serious symptoms, taking a longer period of time off work, and therefore their settlement may be more substantial. The best way to find out how much compensation you could get is to take the 30-second test on our website right now, for an idea of what you could be entitled to. Then call us to see if you’re eligible to make a claim and we’ll be able to work out exactly what you could receive if your claim is a success.
