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?
