If you live on Harris or are spending a holiday there it is possible that you had an accident and are seeking an accident solicitor Harris firm. You may not find an accident solicitor in the telephone directory and typing accident solicitor Harris in your search box may not yield any results either. You may have had a road accident, or perhaps you had a problem with cattle while out hiking. If you have suffered an injury inflicted by a herd of cows, which was no fault of your own, then you have a claim for compensation for a personal injury.
You may have had a road accident, or a boating accident for which you were not responsible, and of course, as long as this is the case you can pursue a compensation claim for your personal injury and damage to your vehicle or other possessions.
How do you pursue a personal injury claim?
First of all you could look for an accident solicitor in Harris, or you could contact another solicitor who lives locally, perhaps on the island of Lewis, and give details of the accident and your injury. You should have received medical treatment for your injury soon after the accident occurred, as failure to do so can weaken your claim for injury compensation.
You also have to make a compensation claim within three years of your accident, or, in the case of a work-related illness, within three years of the first diagnosis of your illness as there is a limitation period of three years.
You may have witnesses to the accident in which you sustained the injury, in which case, you should have their names and addresses to give to your solicitor in support of your claim for compensation. If you had a road accident, photographs of the scene are also useful as they might show a badly-maintained road, for example, if yours was the only vehicle involved in the accident.
