    Innocent who’s injured


    When it comes to accidents, it is a sad fact of life that it is often the innocent who’s injured.

    If you have been the innocent who’s injured, then you might well think that you have the moral right to make a claim for compensation against the person who was responsible for the accident. You may not know that actually, you also have the legal right.

    Legally speaking, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation against someone who has caused you a personal injury as a result of their actions.

    Do you qualify?

    As with many things in life, there are strict qualifying criteria that need to be met in order for you to be able to make a claim for compensation. It is not just as simple as saying you were the innocent who’s injured and you sue the person you think was responsible.

    The easiest way to find out if you could be entitled to make a claim is to contact Accident Advice Helpline.

    We can tell you over the phone whether or not you qualify for a claim. We can also give you free, no-obligation advice regarding your claim and the best way for you to proceed.

    Alternatively if you believe you are the innocent who’s injured in an accident you can take our 30- second test. We will need you to provide some brief information about your accident and the nature of your injuries and then we will be able to tell you immediately if you could be entitled to make a claim. We can also tell you how much your claim is likely to be worth, should it be a success.

    The things that help determine whether or not you could be entitled to make a claim include:

    • Whether or not you were the innocent who’s injured. However, you might still be entitled to make a claim if you were partly responsible for the accident, you will just receive less in the way of compensation than had you been completely devoid of responsibility.
    • Whether or not you were significantly injured. This does not always have to be a life-changing and serious injury. For example, head or spinal injury, broken bones etc. You should have received an injury which has had a negative impact on your life. This might include having to take time off from work, even for a short period.
    • When the accident occurred. This is important as legally, you must start a claim for compensation within three years of the date of the accident or incident from which you were injured.
