Compensation Claims And Your Personal Injury Accident - Articles Surfing
Have you suffered an injury in the last three years that was caused due to an accident that wasn't your fault? Were you aware that you could claim for compensation following this accident? Many people don't and end up missing out on money that could help them recover from their injuries.
Everyday we are faced with advertisements in the media about how law firms will win you compensation with nothing in return; yeah right! But wait it is in fact true. Personal injury law was put in place to help victims of accidents claim the compensation that they are entitled to. It is your civil and legal right to put in a compensation claim after an accident that wasn't your fault.
Having a personal injury accident can leave you with devastating injuries such as broken or fractured bones, torn muscles or ligaments or even head and back trauma with the potential of spinal cord damage. Any injury that you receive from an accident that wasn't your fault could leave you facing lifestyle changes as well as leave you out of work. Injuries such as these can devastate your life and the lives of those around you. Although compensation won't take the pain and frustration away that you are feeling it will help you with money worries and help you with medical expenses to help you recover from your injuries.
Compensation can be claimed after you have suffered due to the negligence of others. If you were involved in a road traffic accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver you can claim compensation for your injuries and damage done to your vehicle. If you were injured in your work place due to unsafe equipment or incorrectly labeled warning signs you can claim compensation against your employer without jeopardizing your job. If you experience a slip, trip or fall due to uneven paving or a slippery surface without the correct warning you can claim compensation against your local council. My point being that whatever accident you are left suffering from you are able to put in a compensation claim thanks to personal injury law and the introduction of the conditional fee agreement.
Putting in a compensation claim has never been easier. In the past many people have been put off from doing so as it meant they would have to fund the proceeding themselves; however in 1995 this came to an end. In 1995 the conditional fee agreement was brought into practice. The conditional fee agreement serves all civil litigation except family proceedings. It means that anyone can put in a compensation claim as they no longer have to be funded by you. Compensation claims are now processed through a no win no fee basis meaning that if your claim is sadly unsuccessful you will have nothing to pay and if your claim is successful you keep 100% of the compensation that you are awarded with any fees, such as your solicitor fees, being paid by the losing parties insurance company.
Many people have started to refer to no win no fee claims as bringing about a compensation culture, which is purely untrue as you will only be awarded compensation in genuine accident cases. People who put in compensation claims have simply started to realize their civil and legal rights to be able to do so.
