In recent years, there has been an increase in compensation claims in the UK made by victims of personal injury. From travel and work accidents to road traffic accidents and slips, trips and falls, our country as a whole is becoming more savvy to the system and what we are entitled to.
Claiming unnecessarily for a road traffic accident or other personal injury is never encouraged, however it is important to look at all the facts surrounding your case and evaluate your eligibility and right to claim.
Considering the effects of your car crash accident
It may seem as though you have had a lucky escape following a road traffic accident. Unfortunately not all injuries, physical or mental, are apparent instantaneously. It is essential that you seek medical advice following a car crash, even for small bumps and strains, and keep a check on how you are feeling in general.
Most car crash claims can be processed up to three years following the incident. Take your time, seek advice and consider the effect the car collision has had on you.
Your car crash claim eligibility
Victims of road traffic accidents can make car crash claims where the injury was no fault of the claimant, up to three years following the collision.
When compiling the information for your claim, be sure to give a true and accurate account, without fabrication. Any dishonest information will lead to your claim being void and may prove costly for the claimant.
An online compensation calculator, such as the quick and easy tool on Accident Advice Helpline’s website, can give you an idea of whether or not your claim is eligible.
