In situations where a person has been injured as a result of the negligence of another person, he or she may have the right to make a claim for damages.

Right to Compensation
If you have been injured, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of income and medical/rehabilitation expenses in addition to compensation for pain and suffering and loss of quality of life.
A number of crucial steps need to be taken almost immediately to ensure any right to compensation. This is why it is important to contact a personal injury specialist as soon as possible after an accident.
