Local Car Accidents
The best and most confident drivers may well claim that they are far too skilled and experienced to fall foul of local car accidents on the roads near their homes which they know so well and drive so often. However, the fact is that local car accidents can still befall the very best drivers because of one simple fact; there are other people on the road. It is for this reason therefore, that it is so frustrating and unfair when a good driver suffers an accident and a potential injury which was by no means their fault due to the lack of care or the negligence of another road user. In this situation it is only right that the innocent party involved in local car accidents should have the ability to take some form of action to gain recompense, and fortunately they do.
Claiming Personal Injury Compensation
If you do suffer an injury as a result of a road traffic accident, and the accident was demonstrably the fault of another party, then UK law states that you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is designed to provide innocent victims with some measure of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial damage which an injury could cause. This entitlement is not specific to local car accidents and in fact is far more wide ranging, but road traffic collisions are one of the most common types of incident which produce such personal injury compensation claims.
When Can You Claim After a Car Accident?
There are a few types of personal injury claim which have specific guidelines as regards when you can claim, however in the most part car accidents do fit within the general rule that you must begin claims proceedings within three years of the incident in question or else your entitlement to claim unfortunately lapses.
