Unfortunately, accidents do happen and sometimes they are not our fault. You may have had an injury in an accident such as this and perhaps you are considering whether or not to pursue a personal injury compensation claim. You may have already contacted your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau, and you may have been told that you cannot get legal aid any more for a personal injury compensation case. So what can you do now?
Accident solicitor in Blackfriars
You could go online and search for an accident solicitor in Blackfriars, for example, or for one who lives near you. Alternatively you could look through your local telephone directory for an accident solicitor in Blackfriars and call them.
Most accident solicitors in Blackfriars or elsewhere will give you a free appointment in which you can discuss the possibility of filing a personal injury claim. You will need to ask if the solicitor has experience in claiming compensation for the injury you have sustained, or for your work-related illness. The solicitor will want details of the accident and the date and time. You need to file a personal injury compensation claim within three years of an accident or being informed that you have a work-related injury by a doctor. Some accident solicitors will work on a no win, no fee basis.
Your solicitor will have to build a case which will prove that your accident or illness was caused because of the negligence of another person if your claim is to be successful. This process may be over in a matter of days of weeks, but it depends on the complexity of your case. Sometimes it takes years to receive compensation because the case requires a lot of research, or perhaps there is no possibility of getting an out-of-court settlement. The sooner you begin a personal injury compensation claim the better.
