Accident compensation claim in Bournemouth


You can make an accident compensation claim in Bournemouth if you have suffered injuries in an accident caused by someone else. They may not have meant it to happen, but it did because they were acting carelessly or negligently. The ‘someone else’ could be another individual, such as the driver of a vehicle in a road traffic accident. Or it could be a company or local authority – for instance, the owner of a public right of way who does not maintain a pavement adequately, causing you to slip, trip or fall.

When to make an accident compensation claim in Bournemouth

The accident must have inflicted injuries on you that required medical treatment. This could be a one-off trip to the hospital or your GP, or you could need ongoing care. Your injuries could be physical, like a head injury or a broken limb. Or you could be diagnosed as suffering with a psychological condition as a result of what’s happened to you. Perhaps you are suffering from stress, anxiety or depression, for example.

You must normally get your claim started within three years of the date of your accident. This is a legal time limit that applies in the majority of negligence claims cases. However, there are some exceptions. If you were under the age of 18 at the time of your accident, you could have until your 21st birthday to bring a claim against the party responsible for your injuries. Another example is in the case of industrial diseases: you will usually have three years from the date of diagnosis, rather than the date on which you may have contracted the condition.
