    Good compensation system


    Many people ask whether Britain has a good compensation system when it comes to personal injury, and the way in which personal injury compensation is administered. The first point to make before explaining whether or not it is a good compensation system, is that the law states that someone who is injured in an incident which was somebody else’s fault, deserves to be able to seek compensation. Therefore, it can be said that a good compensation system is one that protects victims of these kinds of accidents and holds the perpetrators to account. This is exactly how the current system operates.

    A good compensation system?

    Currently the system in Britain allows victims of injuries or illness which were not their fault to claim compensation for up to three years after their accident. Unfortunately, after this point they are no longer able to pursue compensation proceedings.

    Whilst this limit applies in the majority of cases, it is removed in cases where the injury was to a minor, or where the claim relates to an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning. What this means is that there is ample time for genuine claimants to pursue their case. The limit is relaxed in cases where symptoms may not develop within three years, and the system is protected from abuse. These are certainly hallmarks of a good compensation system.
