    Making a successful negligence claim


    Making a successful negligence claim

    If you have heard a radio claim advert you may have been left wondering just what the whole compensation claims process is all about.

    This is a very reasonable and important question, and it is crucial that more people do understand how compensation works and when they may be able to seek compensation themselves by making a successful negligence claim.

    Radio adverts concerning personal injury compensation proceedings are often misunderstood and misrepresented, especially in this media. Personal injury compensation exists because the law states that when someone is injured or falls ill and this was somebody else’s fault, they deserve compensation to account for the physical, emotional and financial hardships that they have suffered. So, for everyone who is intrigued by these adverts, this article will explain personal injury compensation and discuss how Accident Advice Helpline assist people with these claims proceedings.

    Examples of situations where you may have a claim

    In general terms, any situation in which you suffer an illness or injury that was somebody else’s fault could leave you in a situation where you deserve compensation, but there are some common examples to give you an idea. Being involved in a road traffic collision where the other driver is driving recklessly or illegally, or being injured in a fall due to your workplace being unsafe are two of the most common of these examples of making a successful negligence claim.
