    Injury claim in Little Wymondley

    It’s possible that you are thinking of making an injury claim in Little Wymondley. Perhaps you were the victim of an accident and can prove it was not your fault. Generally you have three years in which to file an injury claim in Little Wymondley or one based anywhere else in the British Isles. However there are accidents, such as those that occur in the air, at an airport, or at sea which are governed by different laws, and for these you only have two years in which to file an injury claim in Little Wymondley, for example.

    You may also have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. Such an illness might be food poisoning, or a work-related illness. If you became ill after eating at a restaurant, for example, and needed medical treatment, you may have grounds on which to base an injury claim in Little Wymondley. You have three years from the time you were first diagnosed with the illness in which to make a claim.

    Why wait to make a personal injury claim?

    Sometimes an injury lawyer will advise you to wait before making a claim if there is a possibility that you will fully recover from your injury within a year. If, after this period of time, you have not recovered, you would receive more in compensation.

    However, it is best to find an injury lawyer to represent you as soon as you possibly can. If you were the victim of an accident, the details would be clear in your mind, and the minds of any witnesses, shortly after the event than if you waited two years before filing a claim.

    Another reason for making a claim well before the time limit is up, is that sometimes claims can take years to settle if they have to go through the court system. You may be lucky enough to have the claim settled out of court, in which case you may receive compensation for your injuries within six months or so.
