The good news for you with regards to this is if your injury was caused because of somebody else’s actions, then it is your legal right to make a claim for financial compensation. However, you should seek legal advice first of all, so that you can ascertain whether or not you meet some basic eligibility criteria.

Taking the next steps
If after receiving good legal advice you wish to make a claim for compensation, the process to get started could not be simpler. All you need to do is decide on a law firm to represent you in your claim and tell them you would like to go ahead.
The first stage of the claims process involves establishing the facts, so you will be interviewed by your solicitor on the phone or in person. Then, 2-3 weeks later, you will have to attend a medical examination to establish the extent of your injuries, a recovery period and a prognosis for the future. It is with this information that a claim will be built on your behalf by your lawyer. The worse your injuries are, and the lesser your level of liability, then the more financial compensation you can claim. For example, you can claim a lot more compensation for a third degree burn than for a first degree burn.
In terms of how long the claims process will take, some claims can be processed in as little as 6-8 weeks by a reputable law firm. However, the reality is that the more complex your case is, the more time it will take, and some claims can take months to reach a conclusion.
