What is a personal injury compensation claim?
The law of the land says that if you are inured in an accident that was not your fault, the guilty party should financially compensate you – this is the aim of a personal injury compensation claim. It is extremely rare that anyone just offers the compensation, so we have to claim it from them. We can help if you need free claims advice in Ravenscourt Park.
Under what circumstances can I make a claim?
There are certain criteria you need to fit to be eligible to make a claim, but they are fairly straightforward:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained bodily injuries
- The injuries must have been severe enough to need medical attention
- The accident should have happened within the last three years
Fit this criteria and injury lawyers in Ravenscourt Park will handle your personal injury compensation claim for you.
