How to know if you could make a compensation claim
All too often, people that have every right to make a compensation claim fail to do so. This can mean missing out on what could have been thousands of pounds in compensation, depending on the severity of the accident and extent of the injuries. For many people, understanding the rights in place regarding Brecon car accident claims and separating the fact from the fiction can be a cause of stress, and mean that people don’t make a claim when they in fact could. At Accident Advice Helpline, we receive over 25,000 enquiries a month from people that have been injured and are unsure about his or her right to claim, and we are committed to making the facts around it as transparent as possible. When it comes to making Brecon car accident claims, there are some points to keep in mind:
The timeframe for Brecon car accident claims
You could be able to make a compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident that took place within the past three years. There is no minimum time limit however, meaning that you can seek compensation as soon as you feel able following your accident.
Who was at fault?
If you are thinking about making a workplace injury claim, a road traffic accident claim, or any other type of claim, it is important to note who caused the accident, as you must be in no way at fault in order to make a successful claim. If there is evidence that the negligence of an employer has lead to your accident, you could be able to make a claim, similarly if evidence supports a co-worker was responsible.
