Can I claim?
To be eligible for compensation, you must have been injured as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault.
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking the unique 30-second test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website.
How long do I have to make a claim?

This is not the case however, with claims that deal with an industrial disease or with an injury to a minor.
