Personal injury claims regulation


Personal injury claims regulation in the UK is a multiple-layered issue, with a number of regulations in place to ensure that accident victims are well protected. The key piece of law that affects personal injury claims regulation is the Compensation Act 2006, which regulates businesses acting on behalf of accident victims who are claiming compensation.

Personal injury claims regulation

In addition to the 2006 Act of Parliament, further regulations were introduced in 2008 to ensure that companies acting on behalf of their clients are themselves properly insured so that the client is not left in the lurch should the business go under.

There is no chance of that happening with Accident Advice Helpline, who have been at the forefront of helping people to claim compensation since 2000. We are a law firm who are proud to count Esther Rantzen as our patron. With the former That’s Life! presenter and consumer champion on board, you can be assured of our firm’s integrity.

Personal injury claims regulation is also in place to ensure that people do not cheat the system and make fraudulent claims for compensation. You can rest assured that false claims will be picked up and flagged up to the authorities.

Compensation payments are made by the courts to help people get on with their daily lives after they have been injured in accidents that were not their fault. You may need help with costs such as childcare and taxi bills that you incurred because of your injury, or you may no longer be able to work after the accident and require compensation for lost earnings.

To be able to start a claim for personal injury compensation, you must be able to show:

  • The accident was not your fault, but that of somebody else;
  • You were treated by a medical professional because of the accident; and
  • The accident happened within the last three years – there is a wider timescale to start a claim if you are suffering from an industrial disease or you were a child at the time of the accident you are claiming compensation for.

These points appear in Accident Advice Helpline’s online 30-second test, which can also calculate an estimate of how much compensation you may be due.
