What to consider about making a claim

If you have been injured through somebody else’s fault, it is your legal right to claim compensation.

If you are thinking of making a claim, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Who was at fault? – someone else needs to have caused your injury and been at fault. You may have been partially at fault – this does not necessarily mean you can’t claim, but it may mean that your compensation is reduced.
  • Injury – your injury must be compensable, meaning the injury needs to be more than minimal. For example, bruising that is gone in a week will be insufficient to warrant making a claim; however, other injuries that can’t be seen can still cause debilitating pain.
  • Time limit – you need to make a claim within 3 years of being injured (or 2 years for injury from a criminal offence). There are some exceptions to this, such as if you were under 18 at the time, mentally incapacitated, or if the symptoms of your injury took time to show.
  • Funding your claim – if you have a legitimate claim, you should be able to get a no-win, no-fee solicitor to take your case on for you. This takes the hassle out of making a claim. It also means that you don’t have to pay anything unless you win your case.
