When you claim compensation for a public transport accident in Herefordshire, or anywhere else in the UK, there are certain conditions that must be met before your claim can be deemed valid.
It is worthwhile noting the timescale in which you need to start your claim, as this sometimes catches people out if their accident took place some time ago.
Eligibility criteria for claiming with Accident Advice Helpline
These criteria apply in the UK, and not just for claiming with Accident Advice Helpline:
- The claim must be started within three years of your accident
- You must not have been at fault for the incident
- Medical treatment should have been received for your injuries
There are certain exceptions to these rules, one of which is if the claim is being made on behalf of a minor.
Sometimes people do not receive medical treatment at the scene of the accident because they think that they have escaped unscathed. In cases of whiplash and some other injuries, however, the injury does not manifest itself for several days after the accident. This is why the time limit may start from the date on which the injuries are formally linked to your accident.
