The criteria for making a claim
In order for you to be able to make a claim for compensation you must satisfy three main criteria:
- The accident you have been involved in needs to have occurred within the last three years. This is because there are strict time limits imposed on how long you have to make a claim. Generally speaking it is either three years from the date of the accident itself, or three years from when you were first aware that you had been injured. The last part is especially important when it comes to cases of industrial disease in which it is often impossible to determine when the exposure occurred which led to the development of the condition for which you are wishing to make a claim. There are times when this deadline can be extended, for example in cases of minors who wish to wait until they are of a legal age to put in a claim themselves. In this case, you will be able to make a claim up to three years after your 18th birthday. Speak to one of our lawyers today to get expert injury claims advice in Sheffield about this process and what is likely to be the best course of action for you.
- That the accident you have been involved in has led to some form of injury. Usually this injury will be something physical, for example, in the case of a road traffic collision it may be whiplash or a broken bone. However, that is not to say we can only assist with physical conditions, we can also help you with injuries in Sheffield that have a more emotional and psychological nature, for example, insomnia, and post traumatic stress. Regardless, if your accident has led to injuries which have had an impact on your life, we can help you make a claim.
- That someone else was responsible for your accident. This is vitally important as it is against this person that we will be helping you make a claim for compensation. We can still help you make a claim even if you are partly responsible, but your claim will be worth slightly less if you contributed to the accident and your injuries.
