Getting accident legal advice in Huddersfield when you need it
It is important to get legal advice very soon after your accident. This will ensure that your claim gets off to the best start. The very first piece of advice you need refers to your eligibility to claim. You really don’t want to be wasting your time starting a personal injury claim that you stand no chance of winning.
Advice on this subject will include a list of things that will stop you from being able to claim.
The main reason that stops people being able to claim is the fact that they caused the accident in which they were hurt themselves. So, if you caused the road traffic accident, the workplace accident or the fall accident in the street, you will not be able to start a personal injury claim. This is because you will have no-one to claim from!
The second reason relates to timescales for claiming. You normally only have three years within which to make a personal injury claim although there are exceptions to this rule. If you were a child at the time of the accident, the time limit is longer. You also have longer to claim for some industrial diseases because they can take a very long time (sometimes decades) to develop.
Finally, you must have received medical attention for your injuries. You will need to provide some convincing proof that you were injured in the way that you say you were. The medical notes that were made at the time of your consultation are an excellent piece of evidence.
