Lancaster, lying on the banks of the River Lune, is the county town of Lancashire, situated in north west England. In 1937 it was granted city status because of its “long association with the Crown” as the House of Lancaster was a branch of the British royal family. Queen Elizabeth II is actually also the Duke of Lancaster and owns lands in the area, the Duchy of Lancaster. The castle at Lancaster dominates the city and its roots were in Roman times when it was a fort, protecting the surrounding area from the Picts and the other ancient Scots tribes. It has been used as a prison, and the trial of the Lancashire witches took place there. The castle is still actually used as a Crown Court.
Do you need an Accident Lawyer in Lancaster?
If you have been injured in an accident, it may be possible for you to make a personal injury compensation claim, but you have to be able to prove that you were not to blame for the accident. You also have to prove that another person was to blame for it. This is why you need the help of an accident lawyer in Lancaster.
You might have three years to file your potential injury claim from the date of your accident, but there again, your particular accident might carry a much shorter limitation period and if that were so, you would need to file your claim within the appropriate time period, or lose the chance to claim compensation for your injuries.

Claiming for an illness
If your doctor has told you that you have an illness which you can prove was caused as a direct result of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You may think this is a strange concept, but illnesses such as work-related ones could have been contracted because of your employer’s negligence towards you, or you may have had food poisoning because of the negligence of catering staff at a restaurant. You have three years from the date you were first diagnosed with the illness to make a personal injury compensation claim for it, but why delay? Talk with us at Accident Advice Helpline and find out if you have grounds on which to base your potential claim and then start the ball rolling.
