    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    When considering if you are eligible to claim compensation perhaps the first thing to do is to look at factors that might disqualify you instantly. The first of these is the timing of the accident. Under UK law it is not possible to make a personal injury claim for any accidents that happened more than three years ago.

    The moral of that story is that whenever you suffer an accident you shouldn’t waste any time in looking into your rights.

    The second factor is the injury itself. People are all too often overly swift to make a claim without looking into the details of what you can and cannot claim for.

    Personal injury litigation was introduced to help people find compensation and support when they suffer an injury that has an effect on their life. This means that if the injury is minor and has no real impact on your day to day existence then it is unlikely that we, or anyone else, can help.

    What we are there for is those occasions when you have been incapacitated by an injury to such an extent that maintaining your former quality of life is difficult. For example, you may not be able to work any more, or move about as freely. In these circumstances then it only stands to reason that you should be entitled to make a personal injury claim.

    About blame

    The third but arguably most important factor to consider comes in the question of blame. We know that this might be one area which is a major topic for debate with both sides having very clear ideas about whose fault the accident was. The challenge for you will be to illustrate to the satisfaction of the court that the accident was not your fault.

    You can do this by providing as much information as possible about the accident before you set about finding an injury solicitor Rossendale or other legal provider. This will enable us to tell you one way or the other whether we believe you have a strong case or not.
