With so much publicity around accident claims it is understandable why some people pick up the telephone as soon as they return home from the doctor’s following an accident.

Current law states that you cannot make a claim for compensation following an accident once a period of three years has passed from the date of the accident. Any accident solicitor in Newburgh you may approach will consider that your accident is out of scope unless it occurred in a workplace, then different terms and specialist law applies. But, even with this in mind, it is not sensible to make an accident claim through an accident solicitor in Newburgh before you have all the facts and figures necessary to proceed with your claim. You will be able to get your claim started, but nothing will happen until you have all the information your solicitor needs. Details needed include:
