Take your time!
Don’t rush into anything. Making a mistake in the initial stages of claiming compensation could jeopardise your claim’s chances of success. It could also limit the size of the compensation award you get.
However, don’t put too much pressure on yourself, and try to take each day as it comes. Most tasks won’t be urgent, and they’ll still be waiting for you tomorrow. That said, there is often a time limit on making a claim for compensation. It’s usually 3-years, though may be extended if you were a child at the time of your accident, or if you’re suffering from an industrial disease.Open Claim Calculator
However, that doesn’t mean putting your potential claim on the back-burner. It’s surprising how quickly the 3-year window can disappear, so you need to have it high on your priority list of things to do.
Accident Advice Helpline says, “Put your health first”
At the very top of your list should be your health. After all, nothing else really matters if you aren’t fighting-fit. If you’re feeling unwell in any way, get in touch with your GP and arrange an appointment. He/she will be able to prescribe any medications that you might need, and send you in the direction of specialist help if necessary.
