If you are unsure about how long you have in which to make your particular personal injury compensation claim, contact injury solicitors in Leighton Buzzard, or us here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Injury claims solicitors in Leighton Buzzard
You may also be seeking a firm of injury claims solicitors in Leighton Buzzard if you have been diagnosed with an illness which was caused by another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to file a compensation claim for such an illness.

Accidents involving cows
If you live in Leighton Buzzard, you may have had a nasty shock while driving to work as a herd of cows escaped from their field. Cows appear to be docile animals, but as any livestock farmer or farm worker will tell you, they can be dangerous. If someone had been injured in this incident, or if anyone’s property had been damaged, the farmer could have been sued for damages. If farm animals escape from their enclosure, the farmer’s negligence could be to blame, as a farmer has a responsibility to keep animals secure. Failure to repair damaged hedges or fences would be an example of negligence.
