Peterlee in County Durham was established as one of the New Towns after the passing of the New Towns Act of 1946; it was originally intended to provide housing for miners and their families. It is now a small town, although it does have at least one firm of expert injury solicitors in Peterlee. However, if you have been injured in an unusual accident, you may need the services of another firm of injury solicitors. Different injury solicitors specialize in dealing with different types of accident, injury and illness, and the differing personal injury compensation claims that arise from these. If you have any difficulty in finding an appropriate solicitor to represent you, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers below.
Why might I want expert injury solicitors in Peterlee?
You may have been injured in an accident for which you were not responsible. If that is the case, you and your expert injury solicitors in Peterlee, for example, might be able to build a case on which to base a successful personal injury compensation claim against the person you believe to be responsible for the accident. You usually have three years to claim for injuries arising from an accident that happened in Britain.
If you are not sure if you actually have three years in which to file your claim (there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years in which to claim), call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out, or contact a firm of injury solicitors in Peterlee, or ones based close to where you live.
Claiming for an illness
You may also be seeking a firm of injury solicitors in Peterlee, or ones based anywhere else in the country, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to file a claim for this type of illness from the date of your first diagnosis.
You may be wondering what type of illness can possibly be caused by another person’s negligence. There are actually several of these, including work-related ones, or occupational diseases. Your employer has a legal duty to provide workers with safe and healthy working conditions, and if you become ill because these have not been provided, you may be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim against your employer.
