    Can claim injury

    You can claim injury compensation for a wide variety of accidents which have had an impact on your life, no matter how seemingly insignificant or indeed how devastating. You are entitled to support, following a traumatic event and Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you deserve.

    So what is injury compensation?

    When you claim injury compensation, you are doing so because something has happened which is not your fault and it has had a negative impact on your life. Getting your life back to normal can take time and money, and often mean you have periods where you are unable to work. You need support for these times when you are unable to support yourself. The sort of injuries and situations which can occur and for which you can claim injury compensation include:

    • A road traffic accident
    • Whiplash
    • Back injury
    • Broken bones
    • Cycling accidents
    • Fatal accidents
    • Head and brain injuries
    • Loss of limbs
    • Road traffic accidents overseas
    • Spinal injury
    • Accidents at work

    Claiming injury compensation

    If you have been injured, the first thing you should do is ensure you get medical help. Secondly, if there is a criminal act involved in your injuries then the police should be called. It can be a scary thing to think about doing, but they are very experienced at dealing with traumatic situations.

    If your injury is as the result of a road traffic accident you must inform your insurance company or you might find your insurance policy is not valid because an accident has not been reported. Get evidence about the accident and injuries. For example, it may be valuable to take photographs of the scene of an accident and of what initiated the injury. You should also, if possible, write an account of the incident while details are still fresh in your mind. If there are witnesses, you should make a note of their names and addresses.

    You can claim injury compensation

    A huge number of accident victims have their lives affected by the carelessness of others and they miss out on justice because they don’t make a compensation claim. Luckily, many more do pursue the recompense they warrant. So if you’ve been injured in a non-fault accident and are out-of- pocket, remember – you can claim injury compensation.
