A personal injury claim can usually only be filed as late as three years after the date of the injury. There are some exceptions to this rule, when the injured party was a minor or when the cause of the injury was an industrial disease. However, in most situations, the three year rule applies and, if you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. If someone doesn’t claim for their compensation for more than three years, it is automatically assumed that they actually don’t need that money. And the compensation is designed to help and support people who do need that money in order to get better and to pay off any expenses the accident might have caused them.
The rules are made so that people are as protected as possible by the mistakes or by the negligence of others. There’s no reason why you should pay for someone else’s negligence. And while it’s impossible to keep everyone physically safe all the time, the best we can do is try to minimise the impact that an accident has on someone’s life.
Therefore, if you’ve been injured in an accident that you did not cause, you are entitled to seek financial compensation. Keep that in mind when you contact an accident solicitor in East Grinstead. They will explain further.
How to get hold of the best accident solicitor in East Grinstead
How good an accident solicitor in East Grinstead is is actually something very relative. Since there are so many types of accidents and types of injuries, many accident claim companies choose to specialise in certain niches. For example, you could find an accident solicitor in East Grinstead that is dedicated to dealing with work injury claims. Through their experience, they get to know everything about work law, about what employers are actually required to provide employees, about what usually goes wrong, what are the expenses that usually get covered and what are the documents and details a claimant needs to provide so that everything goes as fast as possible. But if your injury is not an injury that happened at work, this type of accident solicitor in East Grinstead will not be of much use to you.
It’s clear that what you need to look for is a good advisor according to your type of injury.
You can also choose to work with a big company
However, keep in mind that not all personal injury claim advisors choose to specialise in one type of accident. There are some, like Accident Advice Helpline, that have worked for a long time in the area and that have successfully solved many claims with many different types of injuries.
If you’d like to talk to an Accident Advice Helpline counsellor, you can do so by calling 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993, from your mobile.
