FAQs about being in a car accident
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you may be wondering about your rights to compensation.
People are often left suffering not just physically after an accident, but emotionally and financially, too. If this has happened to you, you deserve to receive the maximum amount in compensation from whoever was responsible for your accident. Not sure how to go about making a claim? Read on to learn more about seeking compensation after being injured in a Greater London car accident.
Can I make a claim for a Greater London car accident?
The roads in and around London are heavily congested, and as a result, accidents are a relatively common occurrence. That said, not everyone injured in one is eligible to claim compensation. You can make a claim if you have been injured within the past three years, and can prove that you were in no way at fault for the accident. If someone else’s negligence has caused the collision, you could hold them responsible with a compensation cheque. Examples of negligence could include failure to look, driving whilst operating a hand held device and driving under the influence.
How long do I have to make a claim for a Greater London car accident?
You have up to three years after the date of the accident to make a claim, so while your injury may prevent you from doing so right away, you still have some time to take action and hold the right people responsible for your accident.
How do I know how much I can receive after a Greater London car accident?
The amount awarded will depend on a number of factors, such as whether you have had to take time off work as a result of the accident, the extent of your injury, the costs of your medical treatment and the impact the injury has had on you emotionally as well as physically.
