Where do you stand?
There are many ways that you can view the claiming of compensation; there are usually two distinct camps of thought, so to speak. Which one do you fall into?
On one hand, fuelled by negative comments in the national and local press, along with online versions, people bemoan the state of the perceived ‘compensation culture’ in the UK. Believed to have been brought across the pond from the United States, many people labour under this misconception:- that by engaging the services of a lawyer in Llandovery, or one elsewhere in the country, that they are driving up insurance costs, as well as damaging the UK.
But, the other camp has a different view point entirely. For some people, the fact that they were so badly hurt in some cases, claiming compensation is almost ‘compulsory’ for them to be able to have any form of quality of life.
But, claiming compensation is not the easy option that many think it is. There does need to be certain criteria that need to be present – and it is not a 2 out of 3 test either. ALL the factors, as laid down in personal injury law must be clearly present in order for any compensation claim to go ahead.
The factors that MUST be present are:
- Liability – This is the ‘laying of blame’ to put it in a crudely. Compensation is only an option for those people who have been hurt when someone else – an individual or a body, agency, business, company etc. – was to blame for the accident. This is known as liability and can be anything from negligence to a criminal act. Your lawyer will check with you if this is the case for your compensation claim or not. You may, for example, have police evidence, or other kinds of information, such as photographs that may of help in the case.
- Injury – The second factor that must be present, as sad as this sounds, is injury. Depending on the nature of your accident or incident will be the severity of your injury, as well as the nature of the injury or injuries suffered. Your lawyer will talk through this with you, in detail but you need to be aware that you must have received medical treatment from a suitably qualified professional to be able to make a claim.
- Deadline – You must be making your compensation claim within 3 years of the date of the accident, although we suggest that you start your claim as soon as possible.
