How long do I have to file a claim?
Most accidents and so the injuries arising from them have a three year limitation period. This means that you must file your personal injury compensation claim within three years from the date of the accident. However, there are some claims that must be started within months of the accident. Contact us at Accident Advice Helpline now to find out how long you have to file your particular claim.
Usually the limitation period for filing personal injury compensation claims in Oldham is fixed at three years so that you have a chance to make a full recovery. If you have not recovered fully three years after your accident, you receive more in compensation.
Compensation is given so that you are not financially worse off because of your accident and injuries. You can be reimbursed for expenses that you would not have had but for your injuries.
Compensation is awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries. It also covers loss of amenity if you cannot do something you enjoyed doing before your accident. Perhaps you used to play golf, for example, but can no longer play.
You can also be reimbursed for medical care, treatment and things like prescription charges. Both past and future expenses can be covered if you are not likely to recover for some time, or if there is little likelihood that you will ever make a full recovery.
