If you live in Blankney, then you know that if you look for an accident solicitor in Blankney, you may not find one. Even if you search online for an accident solicitor in Blankney you probably will draw a blank, and if you do find one, they might not have the experience or expertise you need for your particular personal injury compensation claim.
There are so many different reasons for requiring the services of an accident solicitor in Blankney, or one in any other part of the country, because accidents occur all the time. Think about slips, trips and falls, for example: these can happen just about anywhere. However, did you realize that if you sustain an injury in one, then you could be able to claim compensation for it?
Slips, trips and falls
You might be walking through your village or town in the rain (likely in Britain at any time of year) and there might be a puddle in front of a shop, bank, restaurant and so on. You could walk into the puddle and break your ankle because the water was obscuring a hole in the pavement. That accident was clearly not your fault; so the question arises; whose fault was it? The answer is that the blame lies with either the owner of the premises outside of which you tripped and fell, or it is the local authority who are to blame. The owner of the premises should have cleared the water and put up warning signs or a barrier around the hole. The local authority may be responsible for repairing the hole or, perhaps, the owner of the premises is responsible for the upkeep of the pavement in front of his/her establishment.
Sometimes it is not always immediately clear who can be held responsible for an accident, but it must have been someone’s fault. If a dog runs into the road and causes an accident for example, then it is the owners’ fault.
Accident solicitor in Blankney
If you have been the victim of any kind of accident but you are not sure who is responsible for it, you should contact an accident solicitor in Blankney (for example). The sooner you do this after your accident the better as the details will be clear in your mind. You do, however, have three years from the date of the accident to lodge a claim for personal injury compensation. This is also true of being diagnosed with a work-related illness – you have three years to file a claim from the date of first being told that you have such an illness by a doctor.
