    Public transport accident in Worthing

    Introducing the 30-second test

    If you have been hurt in a public transport accident in Worthing, you may be entitled to claim compensation for physical and emotional injuries. But, knowing if you have an eligible claim is the first question that needs answering, followed by how much could you claim.

    To help answer these questions and give a clear indication to potential clients, Accident Advice Helpline created a brilliant tool. Naming it the 30-second test, many people have used it to start their compensation claims and you could use it too.

    How to claim after a public transport accident in Worthing

    Compensation is a way of seeking financial redress or justice after being hurt through no fault of your own. The test is based on the criteria of a claim, as laid down in personal injury law:

    • How were you hurt? What are your injuries? – don’t forget that injuries can be physical and emotional ones too. No one comes away from a traumatic incident unscathed and thus, flashbacks, nightmares, difficulty sleeping, depression and so on are all common reactions to being involved in an accident.
    • The impact of the accident – some people suffer a great deal after being hurt in an accident. Their injuries can be life-changing and thus, for many, life has to change dramatically in order for injuries and their impact to be accommodated.
    • Who was at fault? – claiming compensation depends too on who was responsible for the accident. In some cases, this is proven and clear cut but, in other cases it can be more complex and contested. Either way, Accident Advice Helpline can help deal with all these issues as part of your case.
    • When did it happen? – anyone hurt in an accident that was not their fault have three years in which to lodge a complaint for compensation, starting from the point it can be reasonably assumed your injuries were caused by the accident. In such cases as this, the date of the accident will more than likely be the start of this three year deadline.
