There are certain criteria that need to be met
When making a personal injury compensation claim there are certain criteria that need to be met in order for your claim to be valid, and for compensation to be granted.
Generally speaking these are:
- That your accident must have occurred within the last three years. There are situations in which this time limit does not always apply so it is worth speaking to your solicitor, or seeking advice from the start.
- That your accident must have left you with some form of personal injury. This does not always have to be solely physical, you can also claim for distress, stress and anxiety. However, you must have sought medical attention and required some form of treatment for your claim to be valid.
- That your accident must have been someone else’s fault. It does not matter if you are unsure who is legally to blame though as this is something that your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will be able to help establish.
Compensation claims take a while
It is important that when making accident and injury claims in Bradford you are aware that they are not resolved overnight. Information must be gathered and evidence must be obtained. This in itself can take some time.
If your injuries are serious then you are likely to be given some time to heal. This is important to allow for assessments to be conducted to ascertain what the likely ongoing effects of your injuries are. In turn, this impacts the amount of compensation you are likely to be awarded.
