How do you know whether you are eligible to claim personal injury compensation? There are three main criteria that need to be met if you have been injured in an accident at work or on the roads. If you have been involved in a public transport accident in Nottinghamshire, or around the UK, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Eligibility requirements for claiming personal injury compensation
If the accident took place within the last three years and it was not your fault, you may be able to start a claim, but you also need to have received treatment for your injuries from a medical professional.
The three year time limit may be extended in certain circumstances, one of which is if the claim is being made on behalf of a child. Additionally, your medical treatment does not have to be received at the accident scene – sometimes people are seen by their own doctor soon after the accident, or need to attend a local Accident and Emergency department.
Public transport accident in Nottinghamshire claims
One of the first things you may wish to do is determine how much you could be owed.
Although it is not possible to state exactly how much you might receive in compensation for your injuries, we are able to offer an estimated amount. You can get this by taking the 30 second test, which can be found on each website page.
You’ll be asked a few general questions about your accident:
- Were you injured in the last three years?
- Was the accident your fault?
- Did you receive medical attention?
- Where were you injured?
