It is an unfortunate fact of life that accidents can affect anyone, regardless of where or who they are. As a result of accidents occurring, people may find themselves injured and left in a painful condition. This can be distressing and upsetting to come to terms with, especially if the accident or incident was caused through no fault of their own and they have been left unable to work. If you or someone close to you have been injured as a result of an accident or incident that was caused through no fault of your own within the last three years, then the law states that it is your legal right to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation.
