How much compensation for an unexpected accident?


If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own you might be asking, ‘How much compensation for an unexpected accident?’

If you are injured or fall ill, then it is often the case that you will feel distraught and won’t know where to turn for the help that you may need in your recovery. Fortunately, this is where personal injury compensation comes in; the law states that if you are injured or have fallen ill and somebody else was to blame, then you can seek compensation to help you cope with the physical, emotional and financial hardships you are subject to.

Therefore, it is clear to see that personal injury compensation proceedings are vital for some victims of injury or illness, in that they may be the only way for them to get the help and support that they need to recover. What this means is that it is crucial for people to be better educated about the process and that is the intended purpose of this article. From here, the article will address the important questions of, ‘How long do you have to claim?’ ‘How much compensation for an unexpected accident?’ and ‘Who can help you to claim?’

How long do you have to claim?

In the majority of cases, you can begin compensation claims proceedings at any time during a three-year period after the incident in question. The only types of cases which are not subject to this three-year rule are those which involve an injury to a minor and those which regard industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.

When it comes to the question of how much compensation you could get from a claim, it depends on factors such as the severity of your condition, the effect that it has had on your everyday life and the amount of time that it has taken or will take for a full recovery.
