The law on personal injury compensation
UK law states that if you are involved in an accident that was not your fault, the guilty party has to compensate you accordingly. This is not a new law — it has been around a very long time and is there to make sure that whoever has caused your suffering is held to account.

The rules for making a claim
There are rules with which you have to comply to be able to make a personal injury claim:
- The accident should have happened within the last three years;
- You should have sustained injuries to your body or mind;
- You should have needed medical attention for your injuries; and
