    How Much Money Can You Get in a Compensation Claim?


    The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame, you are entitled to claim compensation. This fact is something that many people do know, but what they don’t know are the important specific details about compensation that they would need if they find themselves in a situation where they may need to claim.

    How Much Money Can You Get in a Compensation Claim?

    Many may think that the question of how much money can you get in a compensation claim is the key one surrounding personal injury compensation, but that really isn’t the case. This is because there is no definitive answer or set amount of money for a claim, as each case is assessed individually. What that means is that there are a number of more vital questions, and it is these upon which this article will focus.

    When Can You Make a Claim?

    The first vital question regards when exactly compensation is available. As mentioned above, the law states that you are entitled to make a compensation claim when you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame, and in the majority of cases you can begin a claim for up to three years after the incident in question. The only types of claim which are not subject to this three-year limit are those which regard an injury to a minor and those that deal with industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.

    Who Can Help You to Claim?

    The next crucial question regards who you can trust to handle your claim in order to ensure that you will get all of the compensation that you deserve. When it comes to this question there is only one sensible answer, and that is Accident Advice Helpline. We have been working tirelessly on behalf of personal injury claimants for over 15 years and use all of the experience that we have accrued in this time to proficiently cope with each and every new claim.
