These claims come in all shapes and sizes. For example, Burntisland can produce claims as diverse as those that involve an injury in the workplace or those that relate to road traffic accidents, as well as plenty of others besides. Whatever the type of claim, however, there are a number of questions that all potential claimants tend to ask.
When and Why Is Compensation Available?
An obvious starting point when addressing the main questions about compensation is to deal with the issue of when and why compensation is on offer in the first place, which can be answered by looking at the law. The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation as recompense for the physical, psychological and financial implications of your ailment.
How Long Do You Have to Claim?
If your claim refers to an injury you suffered as a minor, or an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, there are comparatively specific time limits applied on when you can claim which would require further investigation. Otherwise, you must begin proceedings within three years of the incident in question or your ability to claim will elapse.
