    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Nelson car accident

    You may be in a position to get compensation if you’ve been injured in a Nelson car accident. But in order to stand a chance, there are several factors that you need to think about.

      • Who was to blame? If the accident was your fault, you won’t be eligible to claim. The blame for any accident or incident that causes an injury has to be attributable to a third party.
      • When did the accident happen? Injury compensation law has a 3 year statute of limitations. In other words, if the accident/injury happened within the 3 year period immediately preceding the date of you claim, you could be eligible. If it’s outside that window, you’ve probably forfeited your right to claim. There are exceptions, but only in special circumstances.
      • What injury did you sustain? The nature, severity and the consequences of the injury have to be reasonably significant.
      • Is your injury genuine? Sounds like a silly question. Nobody is going to say their injury isn’t genuine if there trying to obtain compensation; but the point is that there are some people who do try their luck. That’s why in most instances, you’ll be asked for medical proof of the injury.

    Taking the 30 second test

    If you drop in at our website, you’ll see that we have something called a ‘HOW MUCH’ calculator. It pops up on the most of the web-pages. In essence it asks the same 4 questions posed above. You get to choose your answers from the drop down boxes provided, and depending on what those answers are, the calculator will decide whether or not your claim appears to be valid, and if so, it will then issue you with an estimate showing how much compensation you could be awarded. From start to finish the entire exercise only takes approximately 30 seconds – hence the name of the test.
