How do I know if I can make a claim?
Under UK law, you are within your rights to make a claim if you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. This means that if an employer, co-worker or any other party caused your accident, you could be able to make a claim provided you were in no way at fault. You have up to three years from the date of the accident in which to make a claim, too.
