Not your fault?
Generally speaking you might be able to make a compensation claim for personal injury even if the accident in question was partly your fault; however, the amount of compensation you are likely to receive will be less if you have contributed towards the accident and the resulting injuries.
If the accident in question was not your fault, then your injury solicitor will be able to bring a claim against the responsible third party.
Injured in the last three years?
Your injury solicitor will ask whether the accident and therefore, the injuries you have sustained and wish to make a compensation claim for, occurred within the last three years.
They will ask this as there are strict deadlines which apply when bringing a compensation claim and generally speaking a claim must be initiated within three years of the incident taking place.
There are however, exceptions to this rule and your injury solicitor will be able to provide you with more details but generally speaking the exceptions involve:
- Minors i.e. individuals under the age of 18
- Industrial diseases
If you think you might have left it too late to make a claim still contact Accident Advice Helpline today and we can give you immediate advice regarding your situation, as you may never know, you could still claim!
