A car crash in Gloucestershire is not that uncommon, but thankfully most are not that serious. If you suffered injuries as a result of a car crash in Gloucestershire, and the accident was not your fault, it is important for you to understand the claims process.
What exactly is compensation anyway?
In the most basic terms, compensation is a method of recompense in which victims of accidents for which they they were not to blame can seek a monetary settlement to help them contend with the physical, emotional and financial hardships that can come as a result of their injuries.
This kind of injury claim is often subjected to unfair commentary from the media, but they are in all actuality borne of the fact that the law states that people should be compensated for injuries sustained in accidents that were not their fault.
How soon after a car crash in Gloucestershire can you make a compensation claim?
For the vast majority of compensation claims, the time limitation has been set in law as three years, after which time you cannot make a claim under the conditional fee agreement. There are, however, two exceptions to this: if the claim is for an injury to a minor, and in the case of an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning.
