If you live in Middleton, you may be thinking about contacting expert injury lawyers in Middleton because you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault. If the accident happened within the last three years you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim, as you usually have three years from the date of an accident to do so.
Claims to be made within two years
However, if you have been injured in an act of violence in England, Wales or Scotland, you only have two years in which to make a claim for your injuries. You can do this through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This body is a government organization which can award compensation amounts from between £1,000 and £500,000. You can download and fill in a form from this website yourself, although it would be better if you had the help of an experienced criminal injuries lawyer from a firm of expert injury lawyers in Middleton, for example, as the process can be both complicated and long.
You also only have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in accidents at airports, in the air, and at sea. You can claim for an accident in any airport in the world if the country is a signatory of the Montreal Convention.
Expert injury lawyers in Middleton
You may also be looking for expert injury lawyers Middleton if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove (along with injury lawyers Middleton or ones based elsewhere) was the fault of another person’s negligence.
You may now be wondering what kind of illnesses could possibly be caused by negligence on the part of someone else. There are several types of illnesses which can be blamed on another person; for example, if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, you and your injury lawyers in Middleton, or ones based close to where you live in the UK, may be able prove that your employer’s negligence was the cause. Perhaps you were given very little training to use high-powered machinery and so developed Vibration White Finger (VWF). You may also have got VWF if your employer had not provided you with protective gloves and if you did not have many breaks from using the machinery.
Food poisoning may also have been caused by the negligence of food manufacturers or by that of kitchen staff in a restaurant.
You have three years from first being diagnosed with such an illness to file a personal injury compensation claim.
