    Accident lawyer in Lancashire


    Lancashire is a county in north western England and was largely developed during the Industrial Revolution when its mill towns grew. The administration centre of the area is Preston, although Lancaster is historically the county town. At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) some of the lands which now belong to Lancashire were in neighbouring Yorkshire. The major cities in Lancashire were, and are, Manchester and Liverpool. When the Romans were in Britain, the Brigantes (ancient Celts) controlled the area that is now Lancashire.

    Looking for an accident lawyer in Lancashire?

    In those days, naturally enough, there were no accident lawyers in Lancashire who could have helped people file personal injury compensation claims.  However, if you have (or had) an illness which you and an accident lawyer in Lancashire could prove was the result of another person’s negligence, then you could be entitled to make a claim. You have three years to do so after the date of the first diagnosis.

    Of course, you may have sustained injuries in an accident that you could prove, with the help of an accident lawyer in Lancashire, was not your fault. You and your accident lawyer in Lancashire would also need to be able to prove that another person, rather than, for example, a wild animal, was to blame for the accident in which you sustained your injury.

    Limitation periods

    If your accident happened in the UK, you would usually have three years in which to file your claim, but in the case of some types of accident you have a much shorter time period in which to do so. Don’t assume that you have plenty of time left to file that injury claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline and find out precisely how long you have. It would be a pity to run out of time, as after the limitation period expires, you would have to prove that there were exceptional circumstances which prevented you from filing your claim.
