If you have been injured in an accident but are not really sure whether you are entitled to compensation, you might be spending hours or even days online, trying to find clues and to compile all the details of your case into a result.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we wanted to save you all this trouble so we created a tool that will give you the answer you are looking for right away.
The 30 second calculator
You can find it on the Homepage of the website. It is a test which consists of four questions which you will need around 30 seconds to answer. That’s how easy it is, and then you know instantly whether you can make a compensation claim in St James’s or not. Moreover, the calculator will also give you an approximate value of your personal injury claim, based on the type of injury you have suffered and its severity.
Who is entitled to make a compensation claim St James’s
In order to have a chance at a successful compensation claim in St James’s, you need to meet a few conditions. One is that your injury must have happened sometime in the past three years and not a day before.
With a few exceptions, like claims regarding industrial diseases or claims where the victim is a minor, the deadline for filing your compensation claim in St James’s is three years from the date of the accident.
Not taking action in this time frame automatically means, in front of the law, that you are not interested in the financial compensation for your injury, and so you lose your right to it.
The second condition you have to meet, which is equally important, is that the accident must have not happened through any fault of your own. Your injury must be someone else’s fault, and you will be asked to prove it.
The documentation you hand in must hold strong evidence of what happened and must show clearly that you were a victim and that you did nothing wrong, nothing to cause your injury.
We all have to be responsible for our own actions. This means that if you got hurt out of your own fault, you have to be responsible for it yourself. However, if your actions generate someone else’s injury, responsibility means paying their personal injury compensation.
