Bedfordshire is a county in the East of England that borders the counties of Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. The county is varied in that it includes some large rural areas but also features the relative densely populated towns of Bedford, Luton and Leighton Buzzard. This means that for injury lawyers in Bedfordshire is a varied entity, in that some areas of the county give rise to a large amount of personal injury compensation claims, whereas other areas produce very few.
Injury lawyers in Bedfordshire
The fact that for injury lawyers in Bedfordshire is largely split into areas which do create lots of personal injury claims and those which don’t, raises an interesting question of whether injury lawyers in Bedfordshire or elsewhere, would view some areas as more important than others. The answer to this question is interesting, as it is a largely categorical, due to the fact that the right to claim compensation is not dependent on where you live, and as such claims from all types of areas are just as important as any others.
This means that regardless of how many claims arise from any given area, good injury lawyers will view them all with equal importance. What it also means is that everyone in the UK shares a common need for accurate information about compensation and the compensation process, and that is what the rest of this article will aim to provide.
When and why can you claim?
The law states that if you get injured or fall ill and somebody else was demonstrably to blame, then you can seek to pursue a personal injury compensation claim in order to gain recompense for the physical, emotional and financial pain which you may have suffered.
How long do you have to make a claim?
For most personal injury compensation claims you must begin claims proceedings within three years of the accident or incident in question and if you do not then your ability to claim will unfortunately elapse. This is not the case however, for claims regarding an injury to a minor – they have three years from their 18th birthday to start a claim. Claims dealing with an industrial disease such as asbestos poisoning, need to be started within three years of the diagnosis.
