Life has a funny way of coming along and throwing a spanner in the works. One moment you’re happy and comfortable – the next you find your world turned upside down as you suffer a major injury. Getting compensation for that could dictate how well you recover. So, if you’re looking for injury solicitors in Winscombe, here’s what you need to know.
What your rights are
It never surprises us how often someone suffers an injury and never even thinks to ask themselves whether or not they deserve compensation. Often it’s only when a friend suggests it to them or they happen to see an advert on television.
Either way, if they leave it too long they could be missing out on thousands of pounds worth of compensation. In the UK there is a limit on how long you can wait before you make a claim of three years. If you leave it longer than that then, regardless how good your case is, you will not be able to make a claim, which could be a shame.
Aside from that, the old adage that where there’s blame there’s a claim, does to a certain extent hold true. Under UK law you are entitled to compensation if you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s mistake. How much you are awarded will depend on how badly you’ve been hurt.
Compensation sums are generally calculated on the basis of a total for how much you’ve been hurt and another total for how much you spent as a result. This could include loss of earnings or getting treatment.
This should give you a clue as to whether you can or cannot make a claim, but the next thing you could still benefit from is a bit of advice. At Accident Advice Helpline we have a team of experts on hand to help with anything you need. We’ll provide you with full support and advice as you go looking to make a claim.
