A guide to everything you need to know about making a compensation claim…

…and how our expert, in-house injury solicitor in Charvil and their team could help you!

Firstly, we need to look at what a personal injury actually is, as defined under British law relating to compensation claims.

A personal injury is an injury to body, mind or emotions (or a combination of 2 or all of these).

Therefore, this is why you may read every now and then in the media of claims for compensation for severe distress and emotional impact of an accident on a person. Some people suffer from such a severe reaction that it is diagnosed as post-traumatic stress disorder. This is a very real emotional reaction to a situation, accident or incident that you may have been involved in – and is a condition that many of our teams, including our injury solicitor in Charvil, have comes across in their time as personal injury lawyers.

Secondly, there are factors that under British law needs to be met to have an eligible claim but remember, just because you have met all these factors does not mean your claim will be successful – but, with Accident Advice Helpline and one of our injury solicitor in Charvil on your side, you know that your claim stands the very best chance!

  • The accident or incident MUST not have been your fault

This is the basis of personal injury law here in the UK, recognising the injustice of being the innocent victim of an accident or incident in which you were hurt. Whilst some people may bemoan how we are now in the age of a compensation culture, what they fail to appreciate is that this law has been prevalent in the UK for decades! Your injury solicitor in Charvil will need to know the detail of your accident and who was responsible for it.

  • Make sure you make your claim within 3 years

This is a deadline that your injury solicitor in Charvil will not be able to move or negotiate. There are some exceptions but even these have tight deadlines attached to them. British law stipulates that a claimant must make their claim within 3 years of the date of the accident; beyond this and your claim will not get off the starting blocks.

  • Seek medical attention… not matter how minor your injuries appear to be

There is no room for self-diagnosis when it comes to claiming compensation. You must seek attention for your injuries from a qualified medical practitioner; your injury solicitor in Charvil may need to contact them to ensure the validity of the level of your compensation claim.
