If you live in Letchworth or more properly, Letchworth Garden City, then you may be considering making an injury claim in Letchworth after being involved in an accident that was not your fault. Generally you have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, but for some accidents you must make a claim within two years, so you should check with us at Accident Advice Helpline, or an accident solicitor in order to find out how long you have to file an injury claim in Letchworth or one elsewhere in the UK.
Injury claim in Letchworth
You also have three years in which to make an injury claim in Letchworth if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the direct result of another person’s negligence. This could be an occupational disease or food poisoning after eating out, for example.
Road accidents involving animals
If you have an accident because of a stray cow or sheep, then you may have grounds for making an injury claim in Letchworth against the farmer who owns the animal. If deer are farmed and stray onto a public road, then you can also file an injury claim in Letchworth, for example, against the owner. However, if you are involved in an accident with one of the muntjac deer that roam wild around Letchworth, you would probably not be able to file a claim because you would not be able to prove that the accident was the result of another person’s negligence.
If you are involved in an accident with any kind of animal, you should call the police and they should inform the farmer or at least, in the case of a wild animal, inform the animal rescue people or a local vet. Do not try to move an animal off the road as they can be frightened and hostile. You do not want to be injured yourself by an injured, frightened animal: leave its removal to the experts.
