    Compensation law


    Compensation law

    Compensation law is a specialist area of law that deals with claims for compensation. One section of this is claims for personal injury compensation and the lawyers that are trained in this are called personal injury lawyers. If you are making a claim for compensation for the first time, this can be a bit daunting.

    This simple guide from Accident Advice Helpline should help. It will be useful if you have been involved in a road traffic accident, accident at work, or other incident in which you were injured through no fault of your own.
