    Gloucester Sue for Damages

    Gloucester Sue for Damages

    The law states that if you are hurt in an accident or injury that was somebody else’s fault, then you deserve to be able to seek compensation for it. This compensation serves the double purpose of holding the person or organisation that was at fault to account and also helping the victim to cope with the emotional, physical and financial costs of their injury. This is why people all over the country sue for damages in the aftermath of incidents like car crashes, slips, trips or falls. It is an unfortunate fact of life that injuries which were not your fault, could occur at any time and as such, it is important for everyone to understand how compensation claims work and who can help if you wish to launch claims proceedings.

    If you’ve Been Injured in Gloucester Sue for Damages to get the Compensation you Deserve

    Firstly, it is important to state that there is essentially no difference between the term ‘sue for damages’ and the phrase ‘make a compensation claim’, they are just two different descriptions for the same process. So wherever you live, sue for damages simply means to follow up the legal process of searching for compensation when you have suffered illness or injury and it wasn’t your fault.

    General Rules for Claiming

    There are some general rules or guidelines which cover all potential compensation claims and it is important to be aware of these if you are considering pursuing a compensation claim. Firstly, the claims process exists for injuries or illnesses which were somebody else’s fault, so if you caused your own injury, or your injury resulted from a situation that was a pure accident with nobody at fault, then you cannot place a claim. Common examples of incidents where claims are possible are if you were involved in a car crash with a careless or dangerous driver, or if you were injured at work and your employer had not taken the correct steps to ensure your safety.

    Another rule to be aware of is the fact that if the incident in question occurred more than three years ago then you can no longer claim compensation. The only situations where this three year limit is not in place, is if the claim involves a minor, or if it refers to an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning.
