Using the services of injury lawyers in Axmouth
When you hear stories of compensation claims and injury lawyers in Axmouth, the area isn’t likely to be the first place that springs to mind, but for injury lawyers in Axmouth and other small villages, these are still possible sources of compensation claims.
This is the case as according to the law; Axmouth residents are equally as entitled to seek compensation as people who live in London, Glasgow, or other large urban centres. With this in mind, this article will aim to give the kind of general information about compensation and the claims process that will be needed by residents around the UK.
When and why is compensation available?
The first important aspect of compensation to get to grips with is that of when and why compensation is available. The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame, you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation. The reason that this compensation is available is to help the victim to cope with the physical, emotional and financial implications of their ailments, which they have suffered through no fault of their own.
How long do you have to claim?
It is also crucial to understand that you do not have to claim immediately after an accident or incident, and as such you may still be eligible to claim for an injury or illness you suffered some time ago. In the majority of cases, you have three years from the incident in question in which you can begin claims proceedings, and for some types of claim, there can be even longer. These types of claim are those that deal with injuries to minors and those that regard industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning, where symptoms can take a number of years to manifest themselves.
