Personal injury accident compensation claims
When people are injured, it was not their fault and they required medical treatment as a result of the injury, disrupting their work, lifestyle and earnings, personal injury accident compensation claims may be justified. Life is hazardous and we all experience minor accidents, but sometimes the consequences are more serious and we suffer life-changing damage, are forced to take time off work, seek medical treatment and undergo rehabilitation. As injuries escalate in gravity, life becomes insecure and expensive.
Ask Accident Advice Helpline
People may not be aware of it, but their personal injury accident compensation claims are valid if they meet three conditions:
- The accident was not due to any action or omission on their part, i.e. it was not their fault but was caused by someone else;
- They required medical treatment, either at the scene or as a result of the accident. We recommend getting a medical report as soon as possible after the incident; and
- They lodge their claim within three years of the date of the accident. Again, we recommend doing so without delay because of the time needed by the legal team to prepare the case. Statements and witness evidence must be gathered, documents must be prepared, and evidence must be collected. The claimants only harm their chances of winning the compensation they deserve if they leave it until the last minute.
