The law makes it possible to claim compensation for various kinds of injuries received when driving, or at work, as a victim of crime, or when a person who has a responsibility of care did something careless or dangerous, and that caused the injury. Some of the law is found in legislation, and there have been recent changes to much of this law. Other parts of the law are found in court cases. Different kinds of compensation may be available. This is a very difficult and complex area of law. It requires legal advice because there are strict time limits and it is possible to lose your right to claim.
