    Public transport accident in Dacorum


    How do you know if you are eligible to claim compensation? If you have suffered a public transport accident, than this is one of the many questions you may ask yourself when working out if you want to pursue a claim. Read on for more information about the criteria you need to meet to be eligible following a public transport accident in Dacorum, and what you can do to make a claim.

    How to work out if you’re eligible for personal injury compensation

    If you are thinking about making a compensation claim, consider whether or not you are eligible based on the following points:

    The accident occurred within the last three years

    It may surprise you that you have up to three years to make a claim for compensation following an accident, but don’t let that time run out. If the accident involved a minor, then there may be even more time available in order to make a claim.

    In order to make a claim for compensation, the accident must have been someone else’s fault. When travelling on public transport, any accident that occurs is likely to be someone else’s fault – whether it is the public transport company’s or another party’s.

    The accident led to a personal injury

    Your claim is dependent on the fact that a personal injury was caused as a result of your accident. You will need to have had a medical examination in order to confirm this. While you may receive compensation for your injuries, you may also receive compensation for any expenses that have been incurred as a result of your injuries, such as medical expenses, travel expenses and loss of earnings.
