You may be searching for the best injury lawyers in Kirkham if you have been involved in an accident within the last two or three years which you can prove was the fault of another person. You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, but you should hunt down the best injury lawyers in Kirkham or ones based near you as soon as you possibly can after the date of the accident in which you suffered your injuries.
In the case of some accidents, such as those that happen at sea, in the air or at airports, you have only two years in which to make an injury claim, as these accidents are governed by international conventions.
You also only have two years in which to file a claim if you were injured in a crime. You can claim compensation for injuries sustained in a crime through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). Although you do not need a lawyer to file such a claim, it is advisable to have one as the process can be complicated and take a long time. You can approach injury lawyers in Kirkham or elsewhere or contact us at Accident Advice Helpline for help and advice.
The best injury lawyers in Kirkham
You may also be looking for injury lawyers in Kirkham if you have been diagnosed with an illness for which someone else was to blame. This might be a landlord, if your rented accommodation is in a poor state of repair and this has adversely affected your health, or your employer if you have a work-related illness, or even a restaurant owner if you had food poisoning after having a meal out. You have to be able to prove, along with your injury lawyers, for example, that your illness was caused by another person’s negligence.
Finding injury lawyers in Kirkham (or elsewhere)
Your first step towards making a personal injury compensation claim is to track down an injury lawyer who has the relevant experience and expertise to handle your claim. There are a number of different types of accidents and injuries and you need a lawyer with the appropriate experience to represent you. For example, if you have a clinical negligence case to file, you would need a lawyer who is an expert in this area of the law. You would not want to hire an injury lawyer who specialised in accidents which occur at sea, for example.
