The law states that if you have suffered an illness or injury and it was somebody else’s fault then you are entitled to start a compensation claim, Oldbury residents included. When it does come to a compensation claim, Oldbury and other areas of the West Midlands are just as entitled as those that live in London or anywhere else for that matter, as the right to compensation is a nationwide one. What this means is that the nuts and bolts of a compensation claim in Oldbury are important for everyone to understand so that they know how to go about pursuing compensation if and when they may need to.
Nuts and Bolts of a Compensation Claim in Oldbury or Elsewhere
One main rule which governs compensation claims is the fact that there is a three year period from when the incident occurred in which you can start compensation proceedings, after which time you can no longer look to seek this compensation. The only exceptions to this time limit are for claims where the injured party was a minor, or claims where the illness in question is an industrial disease where symptoms can take a number of years to develop.
Accident Advice Helpline
It is also crucially important to know who you can turn to if and when you wish to pursue a personal injury compensation claim, and the best people to turn to are undoubtedly Accident Advice Helpline. Accident Advice Helpline was founded over 13 years ago with the aim of fighting for the cause of victims of accidents and injury in order to get then the compensation that they deserve for the suffering that they have endured. Unlike many organisations with lofty aims, Accident Advice Helpline have followed through on this aim in each and every compensation claim that they have handled and as a result of which they have earned the endorsement of consumer campaigner Esther Rantzen for their efforts.
