    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    If you are looking for a law firm in Dover to help you claim compensation, you first of all have to make sure that you qualify to make a claim.

    Someone else at fault

    The first thing is that someone else must have been to blame for the accident. This could be another road user, your employer or whoever is responsible for keeping the environment you are in safe. In most cases insurance covers the situation and it would be the insurance company that settles your claim.

    Were you injured?

    Compensation claims are for personal injuries, so you must have been injured in the accident. Your injuries do not need to be life threatening, but they do need to have been bad enough to need medical attention. A medical report will be needed from whoever treated your injuries.

    The timescales of claiming

    In most cases you have three years from the date of your accident to start a claim. There are some exceptions to this, the main ones being:

    • Accidents in the air or at sea have a two year time limit
    • If you were a child at the time of the accident and no one claimed for you at the time, you have 3 years from your 18th birthday to pursue compensation
    • If you want a law firm in Dover to help you claim for an industrial condition, you have three years from the date you were diagnosed

    If you are unsure about any of the rules in your situation, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today.
