How do you know if you need to hire an accident solicitor in East Lindsey to make a claim?
Have you been injured as the result of an accident? If so, you will be wondering whether you should make a compensation claim. There is an unbelievable number of people in the UK that have missed out on compensation they would have been entitled to because they did not realise they had the basis for a claim. We do not want this to happen to you. Keeping that in mind, read on to discover if you need to hire an accident solicitor in East Lindsey to make a personal injury claim.
First and foremost, it is vital to recognise that injuries can occur in a number of different ways. The following is a mere handful of some of the most common examples…
- Car crashes
- Food poisoning
- Bike accidents
- Accidents caused by poor health and safety in the workplace
- Slips, trips and falls
- Injuries from faulty products
- Sporting injuries
- Industrial diseases
- … and much, much more!
The truth is the way your injury occurred is not the primary concern. The real question you need to ask yourself is who caused the incident? This will largely determine whether you are entitled to compensation. In order to be eligible for compensation you need to be able to prove that someone else is to blame.
Aside from this, the incident must have occurred within the past three years. This is the time limit on all personal injury cases. The only exceptions include the likes of industrial diseases, whereby it is impossible to pinpoint an accident date and therefore you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis.
Last but not least, it is also crucial that you have seen a doctor. The medical report they will provide is the most vital piece of evidence when it comes to making a claim. Without it, how are you going to be able to prove that you even suffered an injury in the first place?
