If, sometime in the last three years, you are in South Northamptonshire road traffic accidents that were not your fault and you sustained injuries severe enough to need medical attention, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. For many innocent victims it will be the first time they have made a claim, and there is information about them that can help them decide if it is the right course of action for them.
What is a personal injury claim for compensation?
A definition of a personal injury is that it is an injury to the mind or body of a human rather than to their property.
Compensation is what the law says you are entitled to if someone else causes you a personal injury.
Compensation is very rarely freely offered, and if it is, it is generally below the full amount you are entitled to. It therefore has to be claimed from the guilty party, and at Accident Advice Helpline, we will ensure that you are awarded every penny of your entitlement.
