Advice on claims in Cheshire East
After your accident your attention is naturally focused on your injuries and how long it will take you to recover. This, of course, is as it should be but if you are considering making a claim for compensation there is a finite timescale to work to.
Making claims in Cheshire East is possible for up to 3 years after the accident has happened. You must have been injured within 3 years, been the victim of the accident through no fault of your own and have been in receipt of medical treatment.
The above, of course, is most than likely if you are looking to make a claim for compensation but it is best to consult with our team of advisers in order to ensure you are eligible to make such a claim.
Claiming for lost income
As a worker you may have found that you were unable to work after your accident. Depending also on the nature of your contract of employment, you might not have been eligible to any kind of sickness pay or benefits.
There are thousands of people annually who are injured through no fault of their own who lose out on an income because they are employed on so-called ‘zero hours’ contracts. Many accident victims don’t even make a claim for compensation.
It is also not unheard of for accident victims to be refused benefits because their injuries do not qualify them under the likes of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) which has been recently renamed Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
