Have you been injured in a transport accident?
If you have been injured in a transport accident then there are a couple of questions which you should ask yourself. Firstly, you should ask whether you were injured in a transport accident that was somebody else’s fault and then you should ask whether you are prepared to accept the consequences of being injured in a transport accident even though it wasn’t your fault. If the answers to those two questions are yes and no respectively, then you should consider pursuing, personal injury compensation.
When and why is compensation available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is available as a means for victims to gain recompense for the physical and psychological pain that they have suffered, as well as providing them with the financial means to cover medical bills and other costs associated with their ailment.
How long do you have to claim?
In the majority of cases there is a period of three years after an incident in which a victim can begin claims proceedings, but after this time has elapsed then their ability to claim is ended. There are other types of claims which are exempt from this, or any other, time limit. The first of these are claims which deal with an injury to a minor, in order to allow the victim themselves to claim when they reach the age of consent. The second are claims which deal with industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning due to the fact that the symptoms of these ailments can take a number of years to manifest themselves. There are some claims which only have a two year limit.
