North Yorkshire encompasses a large area towards the north-east of England. Within this county you will find a town called Selby. The town is also sometimes called a civil parish and has its own abbey. Around 14,000 people reside in Selby and its proximity to York also means some of those residents work in that area and commute every day. It’s fair to say, however, that few residents have had cause to claim any Selby compensation at any point.
You’d be forgiven for thinking everyone claims compensation whenever an accident occurs. However, some people are unaware they could possibly make such a claim, while others do not believe they should claim at all. Where do you fall in that sense if you’ve had an accident in the past three years?
Is it right to make a claim for compensation?
There are many things to consider here. Firstly, if your injuries were severe enough to interfere with your daily life, even if only for a few days, you would have been affected by your accident, perhaps more than you might have thought. Did you miss work? Did you have to pay to get a taxi to the hospital or to your GP for treatment – something you wouldn’t have had to pay for otherwise?
As you can see, the more you start to think about this, the easier it becomes to assess how much benefit may potentially come your way as a result of making a successful claim. No one can guarantee the outcome of a claim like this, but it does make sense to figure out whether you could claim something.
