    How to Sue After a Car Accident


    Car accidents are some of the most traumatic and unpleasant experiences, but are unfortunately relatively common, and are likely to become more common as the number of cars on the roads increases. What’s worse than a simple car accident, is a car accident that wasn’t your fault and what’s even worse still is a car accident that wasn’t your fault and that caused you a serious injury. Fortunately however, in this situation you do not have to just accept things and let them pass, instead you can read on to find out how to sue after a car accident.

    How to Sue After a Car Accident

    When addressing the question of how to sue after a car accident, it is first pertinent to mention that in this context the question is the same as the question of how to claim compensation, and it is this second parlance that we will adopt from here on out. Compensation is available when you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame, in order to allow you to account for the physical, emotional and financial hardships that can result from your ailment. As such, a car accident that was somebody else’s fault is therefore clearly a circumstance in which you could begin claims proceedings.

    How Long Do You Have to Claim?

    In the majority of personal injury compensation cases there is a period of three years in which you can begin legal proceedings after the incident in question, and this rule applies to almost all car accident cases. This is true as the only types of case which are exempt from this rule are those which relate to either injuries to minors or to industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.
