Why would I need injury experts in Rugeley?
There are two main reasons for seeking injury experts in Rugeley, or others based anywhere else in the UK. The first is that you have been involved in an accident and injured, but you can prove that the accident was not your fault.
The second reason for trying to track down injury experts in Rugeley, or elsewhere, is that your doctor has told you that you have an illness which you can prove another person’s negligence was responsible for.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If your accident happened in the British Isles, you probably have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, if your accident happened at sea, in the air, or at almost any airport in the world (the country must be a signatory to the Montreal Convention) you only have two years in which to make your claim.
If your accident was with an uninsured or untraced driver, you only have nine months in which to claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. It is best to check with a firm of injury experts Rugeley, for example, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you have in which to file your claim.
You have two years in which to file a claim for injuries which you incurred while a crime was in progress. Depending on where the crime took place, (and it was reported to the police) you can claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority or the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (there are other schemes, for the Channel Islands, for example). You will probably need the services of an experienced criminal injury solicitor to help you with such a claim as the process can be long and complicated.
You have three years in which to claim for an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.
