Do you live in Dungeness and have you suffered an accident which has affected your day to day life? If so, it is possible that you may be entitled to claim compensation. This quick guide can help you to find out if you should claim and if so where you might find an injury lawyer in Dungeness.
When did the accident happen?
Timing is everything in life and this is no exception. Before you even go into the ins and outs of the case you should look at when the accident happened. If it took place more than three years ago then sadly you will not be able to claim any compensation.
Was it your fault?
Next, it’s a question of apportioning blame. If the accident was down to your own negligence then sadly you will not be able to make a claim, but if not then you will have a case.
For example, you might have suffered an accident at work because health and safety precautions had not been followed correctly.
A meal at a restaurant could have led to a nasty bout of food poisoning or you might have been hurt thanks to a disrepaired pavement in the street (yes, a bit of a cliché that one, but never mind).
What type of injury was it?
Different injuries attract different levels of compensation and require a different approach in the law. This is why it’s not just enough to find an injury lawyer in Dungeness – you’ll need to find someone who has the right background.
For example, if you’ve been hurt while in the office, you’ll want someone who specialises in work place injuries. In general most solicitors clearly state their areas of expertise and if not, they will be more than happy to tell you.
