Should you be delayed overnight, the airline will put you up in a hotel. For flights that are delayed over three hours, you can claim compensation. However, only of it is the fault of the airline. Get in touch with your airline if this ever happens to you.

Occupational Injuries

These will be supplied by your employer. If they aren’t, and you contract an illness or have an accident, you can claim compensation.

This could be worth your while if you had to take time off work because of the injuries that you sustained. Whether you suffered from physical injuries or have found it hard to mentally cope ever since you should contact a lawyer and see if you can make a claim.

Car Accidents

Have you recently been involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault? If so, you should be able to receive some money as compensation.

That is why it is always important to stop people straight after an accident if you think they saw what happened.
