If you have suffered an injury following an accident that was not your fault, you may be legally entitled to compensation . Although a lump sum of cash cannot remove the pain and inconvenience you have been through, a payout could make up for the earnings you've lost and provide you with a sense of justice.
There are two types of payouts that you could receive: general damages and special damages. 'General damages' is compensation for the pain you have suffered and loss of future earnings, for which the amount you collect is decided upon by the court, whilst 'Special damages' covers your medical, travel and other expenses up until the time of the hearing. Every case is unique and your injury claim could be worth thousands of pounds »
If you have been injured in the past three years, you can make a claim. There are a few exceptions to this three year rule; children can claim anytime before they reach 21 years of age, those with mental disabilities may be granted extra time, and if your injury does not become apparent immediately, you could be eligible to make a late claim.

Occasionally, the defendant will admit responsibility but also file for 'contributory negligence', alleging that the claimant is partially to blame for their own injury. This may occur if a claimant was not wearing their seatbelt during a road accident, for example. If this is the case, one's payout may slightly decrease, but the amount received will be far more substantial than letting an injury go completely unaddressed.
