Basic Criteria

First, there are some basic criteria that need to be established in order to see if you can make a claim. You need to establish that the injury or illness sustained was not your fault. The accident had to have happened in the last three years in order to make a claim. There is pretty much no getting around that law in almost all cases, unless it can be shown you were incapable of making a claim during this time. You have to be over 18 years old in order to make a claim on your own. Your parents should be able to help you if you are under 18 years of age. The party against which you are making the claim should not only be at fault, but should also have the funds to pay you compensation.

Medical Evidence

Second, it’s important to understand that in making a claim against another party that there should be medical evidence to back up your claim. It will need to be shown that the healthcare provider was at fault and did not perform his or her duties in a way that another competent provider would.

Compensation Awards

Your claim may be different and may include multiple injuries or illnesses. The more severe the injuries or illnesses, the larger the amount the other party is usually liable for in making a claim. Retribution can be paid for not only medical expenses, but also money lost from not working, travel expenses, and other expenses related to the injury.
