Criteria for making a claim for personal injuries
First of all you have to be able to prove that
- You were not to blame for your accident or injury.
- Another person was to blame for the accident.
- You received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could have done after the accident.
If the police were at the scene of your accident, they will have compiled an accident report. This should prove that you did not cause the accident. It should also say exactly why the accident happened.
Your medical records will help you prove that you sought and received medical attention for your injuries as soon as you could have done.
You must file your claim within the set limitation period for doing so. If you miss the deadline for filing it, you lose the opportunity to claim personal injury compensation. To file a claim after the deadline has passed, you have to prove that there had been extraordinary circumstances which had stopped you doing so within the limitation period. Such circumstances could be that you had been in a coma since the accident, for example.
