Several hundred people in the United Kingdom find themselves unable to work or receiving reduced hours or shifts due to being involved in accidents that result in injuries every year. Under UK law, if your accident was not your fault, but was instead the responsibility of another person, such as your employer, you are entitled to pursue a claim for compensation against them if your accident occurred less than three years before the day you start your claim.
Claiming compensation is a lot easier than many people think – but fewer and fewer people every year ultimately decide to try to make a claim because they feel their injuries aren’t enough to win them compensation, even if they would actually have a chance at receiving compensation.
Knowing the ins and outs of compensation, and how you could receive it through a Coventry no-win, no-fee accident claim with Accident Advice Helpline, could help you make your decision to claim today, so let’s take a look at what is involved in making a claim for injury compensation.
Making a claim for compensation
You may be aware that compensation is some form of monetary payment, but what does it actually consist of?
Compensation is a form of payment that is provided to people who have suffered an injury in order to cover some of the costs associated with their injury, such as childcare costs, home help and assistance, medication or prescription costs, and so on. On top of this, the compensation that you may receive also includes payment for the injury itself, as well as making up for a loss in wages or earnings due to being out of work or on reduced hours as a direct result of your injury.
Compensation is typically won through a claim like a Coventry no-win, no-fee accident claim, where the client works with a personal injury law firm like Accident Advice Helpline to present a legal case in order to show that their injuries entitle them to compensation.
