London is undoubtedly one of the world’s leading cities, with an enviable reputation for entertainment, culture, dining, finance and commerce, and there is no question that this reputation is well deserved. The UK capital boasts a huge number of wonderful restaurants and bars, as well as no end of outstanding attractions such as theatres, museums and sporting venues. What’s more, the city is also home to offices of some of the world’s largest companies, especially in the world of finance, and this means that the economy of London tends to thrive even when the rest of the country struggles. All of this combines to mean that London is an incredibly popular place to live, and despite the high cost of living in the capital, the city does boast a very high population density.
This aforementioned high population density adds to the busy and bustling nature of the city but can also produce problems of traffic and congestion, pollution and high rates of accidents and injuries. This final problem of accidents and injuries also means that in London compensation claims are also comparatively commonplace.
London Compensation Claims
As mentioned above, in London compensation claims are comparatively commonplace due to the relatively high rate of accidents and injuries in the city, and these claims can actually arise in a multitude of different circumstances. For instance, in London compensation claims can range from incidents involving road traffic collisions, to those regarding industrial diseases or accidents in the workplace. Whatever the individual circumstances of a claim however, there are a number of key questions which potential claimants tend to ask.
When and Why is Compensation Available?
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, then you are entitled to pursue a personal injury compensation claim. This entitlement to claim is set down in law in order to offer victims of injuries and illness some measure of recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain that they have suffered.
How Long is There to Claim?
In the majority of circumstances you must begin claims proceedings within three years of the incident in question or else your entitlement to claim lapses.Open Claim Calculator
