There are times in life when we all need some support and if you have been the victim of someone’s negligence, which has caused an accident, you should make a compensation claim. There are many different types of accidents, which can give rise to successful claims.
What accident compensation can you claim for?
- You can make your compensation claim for your injury. A general guide to the kinds of injuries that are appropriate to take to the small claims court could include injuries lasting anywhere between 1-3 weeks with no long- term complications or minor scarring. This is not an exhaustive list and every case will be decided on its merits and on the medical evidence.
- You can claim for loss of earnings. If you have been off work for any period of time because of your injury and you suffered loss of earnings, then these can be included within the claim.
- You can claim for any other financial expenses as a direct result of your accident. These can include damage to your clothing, any travel expenses you incur going to and from your doctor, or payment for medication. Indeed, any loss which can be directly attributed to your accident, can be included within your compensation claim.
- Important: You need to prove your loss, so be sure to keep your receipts.
How long do you have to start your compensation claim?
The common rule in compensation claim cases is that legal proceedings have to be commenced within three years of the date of the accident happening. There are some exclusions to this rule, so it is always a good idea to check with an expert.
