    Negligence compensation in the UK


    Things you should know about claiming negligence compensation in the UK

    If you’re thinking about claiming for negligence compensation in the UK, you might currently be trying to ensure that you have all the information you need. You probably already know that being prepared is really important, so it makes sense to take the time to work out where you stand and what your options are.

    You don’t have to do this on your own. We’re experts in helping people to claim for compensation after an accident, and we want to ensure that you get the support that you need. Here, we’re going to outline some things that you really need to know.

    The process is really simple

    Too many people decide that making a claim will be too much hassle, and not worth their time. Unfortunately, they don’t get the facts before writing off their opportunity. Claiming for compensation can actually be remarkably straightforward, especially when you’re working with a reputable and experienced law firm.

    Don’t be scared to ask plenty of questions, and speak up if there’s anything at all that you’re feeling worried or uncertain about. The pressure of an accident can really start to get on top of you, and you deserve to feel supported throughout the process.

    There’s a deadline

    Legislation in the UK dictates that if you want to make a claim, you have to do so within three years of the incident in question. This means that you really don’t have time to waste. If you put it off for too long, you could face the disappointment of discovering that you’ve completely missed out.

    There are of course certain exceptions. If you were a child when the accident happened, or you are suffering from an industrial disease, you may have longer. It’s wise to speak with a solicitor about your specific circumstances, and don’t jump to any assumptions before you get the facts.
