If you’ve been hurt in an accident in or around the town of Milnthorpe you may be entitled to compensation but how can you tell, and if you are, how can you go about finding an expert injury solicitor in Milnthorpe with the requisite skills, qualifications and expertise to take your claim forward?
This Q&A session will give you some of the information you’ve been looking for.
1. Can I make a claim?
Personal injury law is complicated so it’s not always possible to be certain about the outcome of any case. However, there are certain basic principles which you should bear in mind.
First of all the accident must have happened within the last three years – anything longer than that will be out of the question.
Second, you must demonstrate that the accident was someone else’s fault (in other words not your own). If you can do this you’ll be eligible for compensation.
Thirdly, the type and severity of the injury is important. Compensation is worked out on the basis of a payment for the injury as well as one for any costs incurred. This could be anything from ongoing medical costs to travel and loss of earnings.
2. What can I claim for?
Any accident where you were injured but it was not your fault. This could be a slip in the street, accident at work, food poisoning in a restaurant, criminal injury, a road accident or an illness contracted due to medical negligence at a hospital.
3. How much does it cost?
Making a claim for a personal injury should not be undertaken lightly as, if you choose the wrong solicitor, you can end up paying quite a lot without ever winning. You should get a good idea of the strengths of your case while finding a good, reputable injury solicitor in Milnthorpe who will be reasonably affordable.
