A compensation claim is the process used to secure that payment. Compensation claims are covered by a legal process and victims have a legal right to pursue a claim under that law.
2. What is personal injury?
A. Personal Injury may be physical, mental or emotional. Physical injury can be classified as sprains, and broken bones; emotional injury is the stress caused by the accident and the resulting problems the victim may have afterwards. Your injury solicitor in Reay will understand the scope of such claims.

A. To make a personal injury claim, the event must have occurred within three years of the start date of the claim. There are a few notable exceptions but these are normally specialised claims involving employment.
