Can I Claim Compensation?

Each year, around 4 million people suffer injuries because of an accident that was not their fault. Many people ask the question, “can I claim compensation?”, however, only one in every four people makes a claim for compensation. The reason millions of people don’t pursue a claim for compensation is usually because they are unsure of how to start their claim.
