Accident solicitors in Kirkwhelpington
If you have been injured in an accident and can prove it was not your fault, you may be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim. If the accident occurred in Britain, then you generally have three years in which to file a claim. However, accidents at sea, in the air and at airports are covered by international conventions — you only have two years in which to claim for injuries resulting from accidents of this kind.
Another reason for seeking the services of injury solicitors in Kirkwhelpington is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to file a claim for an illness like this.
Accidents in the street
If you slip, trip or fall in the street, it may be because there was a piece of broken paving which caused your injury. You should report accidents that occur in the street to the police, who should inform the local authority if you tripped because of a badly maintained surface. For example, if you twisted your foot in a pothole while you were crossing the road, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
If you fell over a manhole cover which had not been properly put in place, you could be eligible to claim against the utilities company whose property it is. Again, the police should be informed of the accident.
