    Compensation claim in Huntingdon

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Huntingdon

    You could be considering making a compensation claim in Huntingdon if you were injured in an accident that was not your fault in the past three years. You could also be entitled to make a compensation claim in Huntingdon if you were diagnosed with an illness in the last three years which you can prove was a result of another person’s negligence.

    Making a compensation claim in Huntingdon

    You generally have three years to file a compensation claim in Huntingdon, or one based anywhere else in the country for that matter. However, it is usually best to file a compensation claim in Huntingdon or elsewhere as soon as possible for several reasons.

    1 If you have been injured in an accident, then, if you file a claim quickly, the details will still be fresh in your mind.

    2 You may have to wait years for an injury claim in Huntingdon or elsewhere to be settled if it goes to court. The longer you wait before filing a claim, the more financial difficulties you could have.

    3 Your solicitor will need time to build a case, so from your first visit to the solicitor, or from the time you begin your claim with one of our in-house solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline, it might take months before he or she can establish beyond a doubt that your accident or injury was caused by another person’s negligence.

    4 It takes time to provide your solicitor with all the documentation he or she needs to build a case. You need to provide your medical report and your doctor’s prognosis about your recovery. You also will need to provide evidence of loss of earnings if you are claiming these. You may be asked not only for pay slips but also for bank statements and so on.

    Accidents in a public place

    A public place could be indoors or out, and is generally speaking any place which is open to the general public. This could be a supermarket, park, street, or library and so on.

    If you tripped over a step which was not clearly marked, or tripped in the street because there was a piece of broken paving stone, then you could be eligible to claim compensation from the owner of the premises or your local authority. Your local authority is responsible for the maintenance of roads and pavements, so if a paving slab was not repaired, you could make an injury claim in Huntingdon, for example, against it.

    Local authorities have budgets for personal injury compensation claims, and owners of premises have public liability insurance which covers such claims.

    If you are able to take photographs of the scene of your accident and your injuries, this could be used as supporting evidence for your claim.
