If you are a resident of Middlesbrough, you may work in the chemicals industry, or perhaps you regularly commute to work by train, or perhaps you work in a shipping company. Wherever you live and work, you may have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault. If this is the case, you may be actively seeking experienced accident solicitors in Middlesbrough.
You usually have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim, although if you have had an accident while at sea, in the air or at an airport, you only have two years in which to file a claim.
You also only have two years in which to file a claim for injuries sustained in a violent crime. You can claim for such injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), and although you can file a claim without the help of injury lawyers in Middlesbrough or elsewhere, it would be best if you hired a criminal injuries lawyer to represent you if you wish to be awarded the maximum amount of compensation possible for your injuries. The process of claiming through the CICA can be both lengthy and complicated. If you need help to file such a claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers given below.
You may be looking for a firm of injury lawyers in Middlesbrough because you have been diagnosed with an illness or disease which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to make this kind of personal injury compensation claim.
Experienced accident solicitors in Middlesbrough who can help with train and railway accidents
Despite trains being one of the safest modes of transport, accidents do happen. Trains sometimes collide (as happened at Norwich station in July 2013) or sometimes they crash into barriers (as happened in Chester station in November 2013).
Sometimes trains hit an obstacle on the tracks, a tree, branch or a person (which occurred in October 2013 close to Marton Station, Middlesbrough).
There are also accidents which are caused by signal failure and bad weather conditions, such as when there are wet leaves or snow and ice on tracks.
You may also have an accident on the station platform, or while on the premises of the station, and if you can prove that negligence was to blame, for example if snow and ice had not been cleared away, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim using a firm of experienced accident solicitors in Middlesbrough like Accident Advice Helpline.
