Lancashire is a county in north western England, and it is a historic one which was founded in 1182, although this was later than some other counties. When the Romans arrived this area was under the control of the Brigantes, who were warlike. The Romans had forts in the area at Lancaster, Preston, and elsewhere in the county to defend their lands against this tribe. In the 8th century the area of what is now called Lancashire was in the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, after being part of the Brythonic kingdom of Rheged when the Romans left Britain in 410 AD. Lancashire was important in the Industrial Revolution as it was an industrial and commercial area.
Do you need an Accident Solicitor in Lancashire?
In the past there wouldn’t have been an accident solicitor in Lancashire to be found, nor would there have been compensation for injuries sustained in accidents. However, times have changed and you will probably be able to find an accident solicitor in Lancashire who has the expertise you need to help you file your personal injury compensation claim. This may not be simple, though as an accident solicitor in Lancashire will be a specialist in only one, or perhaps two areas of the laws governing accidents and compensation.
If you aren’t able to expend your energy on finding an appropriate Accident Solicitor in Lancashire, call us at Accident Advice Helpline. We are a law firm that works with a team of accident solicitors who are all specialists in their various fields, so we may well be able to put you in touch with an appropriate one who works on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.

How long do I have to file my claim?
Mostly, in the case of accidents that occur in the British Isles, you have three years to file a claim for injuries. Sometimes, though, you have much less time to file a personal injury compensation claim arising from an accident. If you would like to know exactly how much time you have to file your claim, why not call us at Accident Advice Helpline? Once the limitation period is up, you won’t usually be able to make a claim, unless there are exceptional circumstances which prevented you from doing so earlier.
