For most types of accidents and injuries, you have three years from the date of the accident in which to file a claim.

Injury claim in Longhope

You can also make an injury claim in Longhope if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your solicitor can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. Your employer, for example, could have been negligent in his or her responsibility to you. Employers have to take care of the health and safety of their workforce. If your working environment is the reason why you are ill, then you can make an injury claim in Longhope or elsewhere in the UK, against your employer. You have three years from first being diagnosed with the illness in which to make a personal injury compensation claim.

Accidents involving animals

If you live in the countryside, you may encounter an animal in the road and collide with it. If you are then injured, you may be able to make an injury claim in Longhope if the animal is a domesticated one. For example, if you collided with a cow or sheep, then you could make an injury claim against the animal’s owner, as farmers have a responsibility to keep their animals on their property and to maintain fences and hedges.

However, if you are driving through the Forest of Dean, for example, you may crash into a wild deer or a feral boar. As no one owns these wild creatures, you would not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against anyone. Of course, some deer are farmed, and if you had an accident involving one, you would be able to make an injury claim in Longhope or elsewhere against the owner of the deer.

If you do collide with an animal you should call the police and not attempt to move it yourself, as injured creatures are often hostile and could injure you if you tried to approach them. You would need to wait for the police and a vet or an animal rescue team, and put up hazard signs to warn other motorists of the accident.
