An almost foolproof way of getting to the bottom of what issues are important to the public at large is to analyse what phrases are commonly searched for through Google and other search engines. When you do this, you will find that the phrase injured at work compensation is a very common search term, so what does this tell us?
Injured at Work Compensation
The fact that the phrase injured at work compensation is searched for so often online clearly demonstrates that the issue of workplace injuries and personal injury compensation claims is important to the British public. What it also tells us, however, is that those people searching for injured at work compensation are not well enough informed about the whole issue to begin the process without first having to seek out further information.
It is for this reason that this article will answer the questions of when and why is compensation available, how long do you have to claim, who can help you to claim and how can you contact them, in order to provide exactly the information that is required.
When and Why Is Compensation Available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is available in order to offer some form of recompense for the physical and emotional pain that you have gone through, as well as to give you the financial means to cover costs such as medical bills and the like, which can accrue as a result of your injury or illness.
How Long Do You Have to Claim?
In general terms, you can begin claims proceedings at any point in the three years following an incident, but if you wait any longer then your ability to claim elapses. There are two types of claims which are not subject to this — claims which regard an injury to a minor and claims that deal with industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.
