If you have suffered a personal injury within the last three years, then you can still claim compensation for it, even though you did not lodge a case as soon as the accident occurred. You may have been injured in an accident in your workplace, at home, on the street, whilst doing a sport, or anywhere, you might have a good case for compensation for your injury if you cannot be held responsible for it. If you were under eighteen when the accident happened, then you have until you are twenty-one to make a claim.
It makes sense for you to hire a solicitor who lives in your area and injury claims solicitors in Elgin are to be found. However, it also makes sense to be represented by a legal firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline which operates all over the UK and who have a legal team of personal injury specialists who, whilst not guaranteeing a successful claim, will advise you on the feasibility of making your personal injury claim.
Types of accidents for which you can make a personal injury claim
You may have slipped, tripped or fallen whilst walking outside, in a public building, at work and so on and broken your arm or leg. If this was because the floor was too highly polished or wet and there was no hazard warning sign to alert you to the dangers, then you have a personal injury case for which you are reasonably entitled to compensation. If there was a sign which you ignored, then there is no case to answer, as you would be deemed solely responsible for not exercising caution. In any type of accident you need to prove that someone else was responsible for it.
If you have an accident at work, then you have to show that your employer was negligent and did not inform you or adhere to the Health and Safety at Work regulations. These are strict and employers ignore them at their own risk.
Personal injury solicitors in Elgin should be experts in their field and you can ask to see testimonials from clients who have been successfully represented in personal injury cases.
