The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame then you are entitled to begin legal proceedings to seek personal injury compensation. This compensation is available as a means to account for the physical, emotional and financial hardships endured by the victim of an injury or illness and as such is a crucial element in these victims’ recoveries from their ailments. This is the case as those who are not well off, the financial implications of an injury or illness can be crippling when piled on top of the physical and emotional pain that they are going through. However, many people would not know how to make a claim for an accident.
It is with this in mind that this article will attempt to answer a number of crucial questions that potential personal injury claimants will need to know prior to making a claim. These questions are: how long do you have to make a claim, how to make a claim for an accident, what do Accident Advice Helpline do for you and how do you contact them.
Time limits for making a claim
In the majority of personal injury compensation cases you have a period of three years from the incident in question in which you can make a claim, after which you lose your ability to begin proceedings. The two types of claims for which this time limit does not apply are those which relate to injuries to minors and those which regard industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.
