For instance, for accident lawyers in Burgess Hill the area creates claims related to road traffic accidents, injuries in the workplace and plenty more. Whatever the type of claim, all potential claimants will find the answers to the following frequently asked questions about compensation to be invaluable.

    When and Why Is Compensation Awarded?

    The logical first question to address is obviously that of why personal injury compensation exists in the first place and when it is awarded, and the answer is found in UK law. The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and it was demonstrably the fault of another party, then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is awarded as a means of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial hardships which may have resulted from your ailment.

    How Long Do You Have to Claim?

    In the majority of cases, you have a period of three years after the event in question in which to begin proceedings, although for claims involving an injury to a minor or an industrial disease there are different time limits imposed.
