Every year we travel over 59 billion vehicle miles, with nearly 200,000 accidents in the UK that result in minor to severe injuries and, in some serious cases, death. Injuries sustained as a result of an accident can be both life changing and devastating. The effects can be short term or longer term, requiring significant changes to your lifestyle. You might need help around the home, or you may have to give up work, cut your hours of work or even change your career to accommodate your injuries. All this would be even more frustrating if you received these injuries as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault.
Compensation claims for accidents are straight forward. Compensation claims for accident are enshrined in a law passed in 1995 in which is states clearly, that if you were hurt as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you are legally entitled to claim compensation. However, as our patron, Esther Rantzen points out a huge number of people – as many as 7 out of 10 people – are not claiming the money that they are entitled to.

Compensation claims for accidents – the cost
Amazingly, it will cost you nothing! Again, this is part of the law passed in the mid 1990’s that gave you the opportunity to claim compensation. Previous to this, financing compensation claims for accidents was down to the person who was looking for financial recompense (in other word, the victim).
