What is a personal injury claim?
Are you trying to find out more about Huddersfield accident and injury claims? If you’ve been in an accident, you may hear people advising you to make a compensation claim. Compensation is a financial settlement awarded to those that have been injured through no fault of their own. It is awarded as a reparation for the physical injuries, emotional stress and financial difficulty that can arise after an accident.
Under UK law, you’re eligible to make a claim if you’re living with an injury or illness that has been caused by someone else’s negligence. This means that if another person or an organisation was responsible for the accident, you can hold them accountable. You do this by pursuing legal action and making a claim.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we commonly help people make claims for injuries sustained in the workplace and road traffic accidents. We also deal with a large number of public liability and clinical negligence claims. There are strict time limits in place when it comes to making claims. For instance, you have up to three years from the date of the accident to make a claim.
How much are Huddersfield accident and injury claims for compensation typically worth?
The amount awarded will depend on various factors, such as the extent of the injury, the impact it has had on your ability to earn income, the amount you have had to pay out for things like medical treatment and more. To get an idea of what you could be owed, simply fill in our thirty-second claims calculator, or call our helpline for a no-obligation consultation.
