How long do you have to make an injury claim in Bassetlaw?
Whilst there’s no real rush to get in touch the second you have been injured, it’s important to take time to recover from your injuries – there is a three-year time limit in place to make an injury claim in Bassetlaw. Wait too long and you could miss out on the opportunity to claim. There are some other criteria you must meet in order to make a claim too. Your accident must have happened in the last three years and you must have sought medical attention for your injuries. If you can say ‘yes’ to these criteria then there’s a good chance you will be eligible to make a claim for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
How serious are your injuries?
You can make a personal injury claim for almost any type of accident, from road traffic accidents to accidents at work and even things like food poisoning. The amount of compensation you’ll get will largely be dependent upon your injuries, and generally speaking the more serious your injuries, the more compensation you could receive. So if you have suffered whiplash in a minor road traffic accident, you could expect a small sum in compensation for your injuries and any loss of earnings you’ve suffered. However, if you have sustained a serious, life-changing head injury in an industrial accident at work, your settlement is likely to be much more substantial. You’ll need to show us that you have sought medical attention for your injuries, as we’ll normally need to see a copy of a medical report from a certified medical professional in order to prove the impact your injuries have had on your quality of life.
