Have you suffered an injury in the last three years that was caused by an accident that was not your fault? It is important for you to remember that you can file a claim for compensation following such an accident.

In fact, it is your responsibility to do so. You have a responsibility to you and your family to right a wrong that can have lasting effects many years down the road.

Many people fail to avail themselves of their right to file such a claim and then miss out on financial compensation that could help them recover from their injuries, acute stresses and their losses in quality of life. You have probably seen advertisements about how law firms will win compensation for you without you, the injured party, having to put up a dime; this is in fact true and is how the system is designed to operate.

This form of personal injury practice was put in place to help victims of accidents claim the compensation to which they are entitled without having to pay any fees up-front. It is your responsibility to yourself and your civil and legal right to file a compensation claim after being victimized by an accident that was not your fault.

Remember that being victimized in an accident cannot only leave you with devastating physical injuries, such as shattered or fractured bones, torn muscles or ligaments or head and neck injuries, but also with psychological trauma that can severely impair the quality of your life. Such injuries include post traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, major depression and acute stress disorder, all of which can severely impair your life quality and, therefore entitle you to compensation.

Indeed, any accident-induced injuries that are not your fault, psychological or physical, could leave you facing lifestyle impairments as well as severely compromised abilities to work. Injuries such as these can devastate your life and those of your family.

Although compensation does not take your pain and frustration away, it can make things a little more tolerable by helping you with money worries and the medical expenses required to help you recover. A claim for compensation can be filed immediately after you have suffered due to someone elses negligence, whether it is the result of a vehicular, work or other type of accident.

For example, if you were involved in an automobile accident caused by the negligence of another, you can and should claim compensation not only for your mental and physical injuries, but also for the damage done to your car. If you were injured on the job, physically or mentally, it is important to remember that you can file for compensation without jeopardizing your job.

The point is that regardless of the type of accident you are suffering from, personal injury law and its contingency fee arrangements enable you to file a claim to receive compensation for both your emotional and physical damages. Also, filing a compensation claim can be effortless, quick and easy.

In the past, difficulties would arise because accident victims would have to fund the lawsuit themselves; however the conditional fee agreement has been brought into practice and applies to all civil litigation except family proceedings. It means that compensation claims no longer have to be funded by you, the victim.

They can now proceed on a no win no fee basis: If your claim is unsuccessful you will have nothing to pay. However, if it is successful, all of your lawyers fees will be paid out of the compensation that you have been awarded.

This means you have no up-front costs to pay when filing a lawsuit. It does not get any better than that.
