Over 3 million accidents are estimated to happen every year in the UK. They come in all shapes and sizes, usually happen suddenly and unexpectedly, and they are not fussy who they happen to. None of us are immune to being injured in an accident that was not our own fault, and in these situations, compensation is a legal right for the pain, suffering and inconvenience caused.
It depends what type of accident you are injured in, as to what type of personal injury claim you make, for instance, if you were injured in an accident at work, you could make a Kettering accident at work claim.
Making your Kettering accident at work claim for compensation
There are several stages to making a Kettering accident at work claim, firstly making sure your accident and injuries fir the rules for making a claim, which are:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have warranted medical attention
- The accident must have happened in the last three years
These rules apply to all personal injury claims, not just a Kettering accident at work claim, apart from a few exceptions to the time limits. If you think you qualify to claim, but are unsure, you should call the friendly and helpful advisers on Accident Advice Helpline’s freephone number, 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
Next, you will need any evidence you can gather of the accident and of your injuries. This could be Photos of the accident scene, witness statements, and sometimes official bodies are involved in investigating accidents, and they compile accident reports which can be very useful. To prove your injuries, medical reports from whoever treated you will be needed, and some victims are asked to attend a separate medical assessment.Open Claim Calculator
