Many accident victims in the UK end up missing on compensation for a lack of knowledge of their rights and entitlements. To help you better understand what making a personal injury claim involves, we have compiled a few important injury compensation facts you should know about.
Who can make a claim?
If within the last three years you have suffered personal injury in an accident that was caused by the negligent actions of a third party, by law you are entitled to file a claim for compensation. Claimants over the age of 18 can contact us directly to start their claims while minors will need a litigation friend, usually a family member or a close friend to pursue the claim on their behalf. In fatal accidents, dependents of the deceased are entitled to make claims for the loss of dependency.
Starting a compensation claim
Starting a claim for compensation in North Somerset has never been easier. All you have to do is simply give us a call and tell us about your accident. One of our advisers will discuss your claim with you and ask you to answer a few simple questions. Based on the information you provide, your adviser will carefully review your case and let you know whether your claim is valid and how much you should expect to receive in compensation.
If you choose to start the claims process, we will appoint an experienced specialist solicitor to handle your claim. Your solicitor will work quickly and efficiently to build a strong case to make sure you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.

Is it too late to start my claim?
There is a time limit of three years, within which you can make a claim. This time limit can be extended in special circumstances, such as in claims involving industrial illnesses such as asbestosis and mesothelioma where the disease can develop for years without showing symptoms. To know for sure whether you can still file a claim, call today to make an enquiry.
