There are two places called Longridge in the UK, one is a watersports and outdoor activity centre, near Marlow in Buckinghamshire, while the other one is situated about eight miles from Preston in the Ribble Valley borough. If you live in Longridge, you may have been injured in an accident that you can prove was another person’s fault. If the accident happened within the last three years, you may be eligible to make an injury claim in Longridge or elsewhere in the British Isles.
You should bear in mind that for some accidents, such as those at airports, on aircraft, or at sea, for example, you only have two years from the date of the accident to make an injury claim in Longridge (or one based in any other place in the UK). If you have any doubts about the statute of limitations and how it relates to your specific type of accident, call us at Accident Advice Helpline. (Our freephone numbers can be found below.)
Injury claim in Longridge
Although it may seem like a contradiction of terms, you can also make an injury claim in Longridge for any illness you have been diagnosed with in the last three years that can be proven to have been the result of another person’s negligence. The other person could be your employer, if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or the owner of a restaurant, if you have been unlucky enough to have suffered from food poisoning after eating out.
Accidents in public places
A public place can be anywhere that is open to members of the general public: for example, museums, cinemas, restaurant, banks, shops, and of course the street. You may have slipped, tripped or fallen in any of these places, and if you have, you should have reported the accident to a member of staff and made certain that it was recorded in the accident book. If you fell and injured yourself in the street, the police should be informed.
It is a good idea to take photographs of the scene of your accident and of your injuries, as these can be used as supporting evidence in an injury claim in Longridge for example.
You should have medical treatment for your injuries as soon as possible, as some injuries are exacerbated if treatment is not given immediately and failure to seek medical attention soon after your accident could weaken any personal injury compensation claim you might later make.
