    Government compensation


    According to all legal bodies and the government compensation should be available to any individual who suffers illness or injury due to the actions or inaction of another party, whether it is an individual or an organisation. Therefore, according to the government compensation is an important way in which people who have suffered illness or injury can gain the kind of financial support which they may need to deal with the aftermath of their accident.

    Despite this support of the government compensation is still a much misunderstood concept. It is for that reason that this article will attempt to explain the compensation claim process in more detail and also will discuss just how Accident Advice Helpline helps people to pursue compensation claims.

    Backed by the government compensation is not as complex as you may think

    Compensation is available as a means for victims of accidents which were not their fault to gain recompense for the harm which was caused to them. It is also, for many, the only way in which they can cover the mounting costs that can also accompany a serious injury in the shape of physiotherapy, prescription charges, loss of earnings and plenty more besides.

    Unless a claim involves an injury to a minor, or relates to industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning, there is also a three-year period from the incident in which you can claim. After this, you can no longer place a claim.

    Accident Advice Helpline

    Accident Advice Helpline has been in the business of gaining the compensation that claimants deserve for over 15 years. In that time, we have assisted tens of thousands of people across all manner of compensation claims. We have carved out an impressive reputation for always being dedicated to the cause of compensation claimants and because of this, have earned the endorsement of consumer champion Dame Esther Rantzen.
