A lawsuit for injury compensation is a way of winning a financial award, which may be in form of cash or cheque payment to compensate the claimant or plaintiff for the losses, personal injury, and harm that was caused by the defendant.
The plaintiff has to prove that someone else caused the injury by a breach of duty or negligence and medical attention was sought. Compensation varies depending on the type of the injury and the extent of the damages which were incurred.
If you get involved in a lawsuit for injury compensation to demand damages for a personal injury you sustained which was not your fault, Accident Active Helpline is the only number you need to call.

Getting what you deserve from a lawsuit for injury compensation
There are some claims that can be processed through a telephone conversation. Some personal injury compensations are sorted out of court with payment of the claim referred to as a settlement. Otherwise, you may involve a lawyer to attend court cases on your behalf or you can attend the hearing yourself.
Compensation in personal injury claims are based on “no-fault’’ laws and the claimant has to prove in a lawsuit for injury compensation that, the injury was caused by someone else.
Personal injury is used to refer to injuries incurred on body, mind and emotions. Compensation is based on bodily injury which includes medical expenses, pain and suffering and emotional distress, loss of earnings and loss of quality of life, equipments like wheelchairs and the necessary adaptations to the home to enable mobilisation of the patient may be awarded. Each case is determined on merit.
