Keep reading for more information about getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline at the bottom of the page.
Getting started with a compensation claim
In order to be eligible to make a claim for compensation, you must meet the following requirements:
The accident must have taken place within the last three years
You may not have realised that you have up to three years to make a claim for compensation following an accident. Unlike insurance claims or police reports, you have longer in which to make your claim. If the accident involved a minor or an industrial disease, you may find that you have even longer to make a claim.
The accident must have led to your injuries
In order to claim compensation, you must be able to prove that your injuries were caused by the accident. This means that you will need medical proof from a doctor as evidence that your accident led to these injuries. This is why it’s important to seek medical treatment immediately after an accident in order not to miss anything.
The accident must not have been your fault
To be eligible to claim compensation, you must be able to prove that the accident was not your fault. Whether it was caused by another driver, a negligent employer or the council’s failure to maintain a public pathway or walkway, you will only be entitled to compensation if the accident was caused by someone else.
