Compensation Solicitors in Broad Street
Compensation Solicitors in Broad Street and elsewhere, could help you build a case to prove that an accident in which you sustained injuries was not your fault.
Proving that an accident was no fault of yours is a crucial factor if you want to make a successful personal injury compensation claim. You cannot get compensation for an accident that was your fault. Solicitors in Broad Street and elsewhere could also help build a case to prove that an illness you have contracted was caused as a result of another person’s negligence.
You have three years to claim compensation for an illness that was caused by another person’s negligence, but you must file your claim within three years of first being diagnosed with it. The time scales for filing claims for injuries is a little more varied.
You usually have three years from the date of the accident to file a claim if the accident happened in the UK. However, there are some accidents that are exceptions to this three year rule, so you should find out exactly how long you have to make your claim either by contacting a firm of solicitors near you, or calling us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers which you will find below.
If your accident happened at sea, in the air, or at almost any airport in the world, you only have two years in which to make your claim. Also if you were injured while a crime was in progress, and did nothing to provoke the attack, you would have two years in which to claim for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
