Chew Magna has approximately 1,200 residents, which means that there are relatively few accidents. The fact that for injury lawyers, Chew Magna does not produce as many compensation claims as other larger areas of population, does not mean that it cannot produce any claims. In fact, for injury lawyers, Chew Magna can produce all manner of compensation claims but due to the lower level of population these claims are simply few and farther between.
When claims do arise from Chew Magna, the potential claimants are likely to ask some or all of the following questions, and will benefit from reading the answers before they embark on their claims proceedings.
How Do I Know Whether I Can Claim?
To be eligible for compensation, you must have been injured as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault.
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking the unique 30-second test at Accident Advice Helpline’s website.
How Long Do You Have To Claim?
For most types of claim you have a period of three years from an accident or incident in which to begin claims proceedings and after this time has elapsed you can no longer claim. This is not the case however, with claims that deal with an industrial disease or with an injury to a minor. For disease claims, the three years run from the date that the disease was diagnosed rather than the date that the victim contracted the disease, and for minors, the three years run from the injured person’s 18th birthday.
