If you live in North Kensington and are considering making a compensation claim North Kensington then you may be wondering if you actually have a case to make a claim and what the procedure is. Of course you cannot get legal aid anymore to make a compensation claim in North Kensington or any other personal injury compensation claim anywhere in the UK.
Making a Compensation Claim in North Kensington
To make a compensation claim North Kensington, or one from another location within the UK you have to be the innocent party. Here are some of the criteria for making a compensation claim in North Kensington for example:-
1 You must have been the victim of the accident and not to blame for it in any way. You will have to prove the accident was caused by another person’s negligence. This is why you will probably need the services of a specialist accident solicitor.
2 The accident in which you sustained your injuries must have happened no more than three years ago. This is a general rule, although for some accidents such as those in international air space and international waters, you have only two years to file a claim for personal injury compensation as such accidents are covered by International Conventions.
3 You can claim personal injury compensation for a work-related illness or an occupational disease within three years of first being informed that you have this medical condition.
How to Make a Compensation Claim in North Kensington
If you have a medical negligence case then you would have to find a solicitor who specialized in this area. Accident solicitors have different areas of expertise and you need a specialist in the type of accident you have had as well as one who has experience of handling cases in which clients have had the same kind of injury as you. For example, if you have suffered a catastrophic injury, perhaps damage to the spinal cord, you don’t need a solicitor who usually deals with clients who have broken a limb.
If you are experiencing difficulty in finding an appropriate solicitor to represent you, then you could call us at Accident Advice Helpline for expert legal advice regarding any aspect of your potential claim (including finding a solicitor to represent you).
