Compensation Claim in Oxford
When it comes to a compensation claim in Oxford, residents are just as entitled to begin proceedings as those who live anywhere else in the country. This is the case as the right to compensation is a nationwide one which is protected by the full force of the law. What this means is that the law states that when you suffer an injury or fall ill and it was somebody else’s fault, you deserve to be able to pursue a compensation claim.
This right to compensation exists so that those who inflict injuries on others, either deliberately or through neglect and carelessness, can be held to account, but is also in place for another reason. This second and arguably more important function of compensation is to provide victims with a means to deal with the physical, emotional and financial hardships that can result from a serious injury.
How Long Do You Have to Claim?
For the majority of personal injury compensation claims, there is a period of three years from the incident in question in which you can begin the prerequisite proceedings for seeking compensation, after which your right to compensation has elapsed. The only cases where the time limit may be different are those where the injury in question was inflicted on a minor, or where the ailment in question is an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, where symptoms can take years to develop.
