If you are wondering what the phrase Esther Rantzen compensation means, you probably haven’t seen the adverts Esther made for us at Accident Advice Helpline. Compensation is all about personal injury compensation. You can make a claim for Esther Rantzen compensation if you have been involved in an accident, for which you were not to blame, in which you sustained injuries. You need to make a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of the date of the accident.
Esther Rantzen Compensation
In the ads she made for us Dame Esther Rantzen says that you are entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim for injuries you got in an accident that was not your fault. You can claim compensation because you are entitled to do so. Although you cannot get legal aid for a personal injury compensation claim, you can find law firms (such as Accident Advice Helpline) which operate on a no-win, no-fee* basis.
Types of accidents
You can claim for accidents which occurred at work, which were recorded in the accident book and reported by your employer to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). If your accident was not recorded or reported, then you can inform the HSE of its occurrence.
The most common types of accident are slips, trips and falls. This makes sense if you think about it, as these can occur just about anywhere. You can claim compensation for an injury after a fall in the street if you fell over a broken piece of paving, or if you were crossing the road at a pedestrian crossing and fell because your foot went into a pothole.
You can also claim for road traffic accidents, whether you were the driver, a passenger or a pedestrian. As long as your injuries needed medical attention, you can claim for any type of accident that was not your fault.
You can also claim personal injury compensation for work-related illnesses and occupational diseases if you make a claim within three years of first being diagnosed with the complaint.
