You may have been involved in an accident which was not your fault and be looking for an accident solicitor in Keith or elsewhere in your local business directory, or searching online for an accident solicitor in Keith. A claim for personal injury compensation could also be for a work-related illness or for an illness such as food poisoning which was caused by another person’s negligence.
How do I start a personal injury compensation claim?
First of all, you will need to contact an accident solicitor in Keith, or one who works near you. You need to find out if you have grounds to file a personal injury compensation claim. You can expect to have the first appointment free, but you should understand that you cannot receive legal aid for such a case. You will need an accident solicitor who acts on a no win, no fee basis.
You will need to begin your claim within three years of the date of the accident or within three years of first being diagnosed with a work-related illness. If you had an accident, there might be a police report or if it occurred in your workplace or on public or private premises, then it should have been reported at the time and logged in an accident book. Details of an accident should also be accompanied by the names, addresses and contact numbers of any witnesses. Photographs of the scene of the accident can also be used as evidence.
You should also have had medical treatment soon after the accident and a medical report will help you in the pursuit of your claim.
Accident solicitor in Keith
You may not find an accident solicitor in Keith who has experience of making a claim for the type of accident and injury you received.
