If you are a resident of Lickfold you may be thinking about making an injury claim, either because you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, or because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence. You generally have three years in which to file a claim, but the sooner you can file one, the better for you.
Injury claim in Lickfold
In some cases you only have two years in which to file an injury claim. If you had an accident on an aircraft, or at an airport or if you had an accident on a ship or boat at sea, you have two years in which to file an injury claim. This is also the case if you were injured in a crime, as you have two years in which to claim compensation from the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority.
Filing a claim
You will need to find a solicitor who has the expertise you require to make a successful injury claim in Lickfold for example. Accident solicitors usually specialise in different areas of personal injury compensation, with some being expert in accidents in public places, others in accidents at work and still others in the field of work-related illnesses or occupational diseases.
Luckily for you many solicitors work on a no-win, no fee* basis, which is good for clients as there is no legal aid for personal injury compensation claims.
You should get a first appointment free of charge so that you and the solicitor can discuss the possibility of filing a personal injury compensation claim. By the end of this meeting the solicitor should be able to tell you whether or not you have grounds for making an injury claim.
You will be asked to provide a solicitor with documentation so that he or she can prepare your case. You will need to supply him or her with your medical report and prognosis if you are still suffering from your illness or injury, perhaps a police report (depending on whether or not they were involved), pay slips if you wish to claim for loss of earnings, receipts for medical expenses and so on.
