Leven road traffic accidents are the second most common of personal injury claims, after claims for slips, trips and falls Accidents at work are the third most common. Over 3 million accidents happen every year in the UK and the majority of them fall into one of these three categories.
Accidents usually happen when you least expect them to, suddenly through the negligence or recklessness of someone else. The problem is that in a large number of accidents, there are innocent parties, injured through no fault of their own. In this situation, if the injuries they sustained needed medical treatment, UK law says the victim is entitled to claim compensation from whoever was responsible.
The criteria victims need to comply with to claim after Leven road traffic accidents
There are legal criteria you need to fit to be able to make your claim for compensation:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
These rules apply to all personal injury claims, not just ones for Leven road traffic accidents.
If your claim is successful you will be awarded compensation for the severity of the injuries you have sustained, the recovery period expected and the impact they have had on your life. For some this will be no more than a minor inconvenience, but in other cases it may be that they will never be able to work again or they could need 24 hour care.
As well as the general compensation relating to your injuries, you can claim special compensation for any costs and losses that have arisen because of the accident. Some of these on their own, such as prescription charges, might not seem to be very much, but over a period of time they can mount up to a lot of money.
