Compensation is paid to people who have received an injury due to someone else’s actions. If you want to find out if you can make an accident compensation claim in Plymouth, then speak to Accident Advice Helpline.
There are different types of injury. Those which happen suddenly due to an accident, and those this which can come on slowly if you’re doing repetitive work.
When you should make a claim
If you have an accident, there is a time limit of three years to start a claim. This can be extended if a child is involved, but it’s always best to make sure you have the right advice.
A claim can be started as soon as you know that you were not at fault. Claims can take months to settle, so the sooner you get it started, the quicker you will receive your compensation.
