Personal injury compensation is a growing part of UK law, which helps members of the public to claim compensation back for accidents and injuries. If you’ve been in an accident in the past three years that was somebody else’s fault, Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim money back for that accident.
Have you been in an accident?
If you’ve been in an accident or recently suffered an injury, perhaps you’re thinking to yourself, ‘What compensation can I get after my accident?’. If you think you might want to claim for compensation with us, the first thing you need to do is make sure you’ve seen a doctor about your injuries and been diagnosed by a professional; this way, any injuries you have suffered can be proved later.
What compensation can I get after my car accident?
You can claim compensation for all kinds of accidents including car accidents and other road traffic accidents. The amount of compensation you will get for an accident or injury usually depends on the severity; for example, you’re more likely to be able to claim more compensation for broken bones or the loss of a limb than you are for bruising. You will also probably be eligible to claim more for accidents which cost you significant amounts of money, either in medical care or time off work.
What if the accident was partially my fault?
The big thing to remember about claiming compensation for accidents is that they must have been at least partially somebody else’s fault. This means that in some cases, it doesn’t matter if you had a hand in your own injuries. For example, if you were the passenger in a car involved in an accident and you did not buckle your seatbelt, this will not necessarily stop you from being able to claim compensation, though the amount may be reduced accordingly.
