If you have suffered a Hereford injury and the accident was not your fault then the law states that you are entitled to pursue a compensation claim to account for the emotional, physical and financial pain that you have endured. This legal right is a nationwide one, so is certainly not restricted to just a Hereford accident injury but the fact remains that people in Hereford and elsewhere tend not to really know about compensation and the compensation claims process. It is for this reason that this article will run through the major details about claiming compensation so that anyone who believes that they may have a Hereford injury claim or one based elsewhere in the country will have all of the information that they need.
Three Year Rule
For many personal injury compensation claims you have a period of three years after the incident in question in which to begin claims proceedings, after which you can no longer pursue your claim. This rule is in place in order to prevent abuse of the compensation system but there are a couple of types of claims which are exempt from the three year rule. The first of these types of claim are those which regard injuries to minors and these are exempt from the rule in order to allow people to retrospectively claim for an injury which they suffered as a child, once they are old enough to be able to begin legal proceedings. The other type of claim which is exempt is those claims, which relates to industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning and these are subject to the three year rule due to the fact that the symptoms of these kinds of ailments can take years to manifest themselves.
