    How to get personal injury compensation


    Compensation is a legal term that really means money to make up for something that you have suffered. For the compensation system to work there must be a victim or claimant. This is the person who has been injured in an accident or incident that was not their fault. Then there must be someone who can be shown to have been at fault. That is the person who has to pay the compensation.

    In practice, most people have an insurance policy that pays the compensation. Most car accident claims are paid from a car insurance policy. Most employee claims are paid from an Employers Liability insurance and many slips and trips are paid for by a Public Liability Insurance Policy. This can all be very confusing! If you have just been hurt in an accident that was not your fault you may be left wondering how to get personal injury compensation.

    How to get personal injury compensation for a criminal assault

    Claiming for a criminal assault is slightly different because you are claiming from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority rather than from an individual. There are many rules, regulations and tariffs that control the payments that are made by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority to ensure that it is fair to everyone. The more serious injuries generally get more compensation than those that are more mild.
