Expert injury solicitors in Kirknewton
If you live in the village, you’ll know that there aren’t any expert injury solicitors in Kirknewton. So what if you were injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault? You could find a firm of solicitors near you, or you could call us at Accident Advice Helpline for help in locating one who could represent you on a no win no fee* basis.
You may also be searching for expert injury solicitors in Kirknewton, or ones based elsewhere, because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. This might be a work-related illness, for example, and you and your injury solicitors in Kirknewton, or ones based elsewhere in the British Isles, could prove that your employer’s negligence caused your illness.
How long do I have to file a claim?
Generally, you have three years from the date of your accident or of being diagnosed with an illness in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, although for accidents which occur at sea, in the air or at airports you have only two years in which to make your claim. Also, if you were a victim of a violent crime which occurred in Scotland, England or Wales, you have only two years in which to claim compensation for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
Although travelling by train is relatively safe, accidents can occur when people or objects such as fallen trees are on the tracks. Signals may fail and bad weather conditions, such as snow and ice on the tracks, make train travelling dangerous. If you are injured in a train accident that you can prove was no fault of your own, then you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injuries.
