When and why is compensation available?
The law states that if someone is injured or falls ill and it was demonstrably the fault of another party, be it an individual or an organisation, then they are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is available in order to provide the victim with some measure of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that they suffered as a result of their ailment.
How long do you have to claim?
For most claims you must begin legal proceedings within three years of the incident in question, or else your ability to claim will unfortunately elapse.
