Coventry has been known as a centre of motor and cycle manufacturing for over a hundred years. Very little of that industry remains, although Jaguar and Peugeot retain a presence. London’s famous black cab taxis are the only vehicles still wholly built in the city. Machine tool manufacturing was also a major part of Coventry’s economy, but that has also died out.
Cars, machine tool manufacturing and other manufacturing still remain to an extent in Coventry but in recent years the city has moved towards the finance and services industries. The creative industries are also well represented.
Injury Lawyers in Coventry
The move from manufacturing to non-manual industries means that for injury lawyers Coventry does not produce as many compensation claims as it did, but that does not mean that people are no longer being injured in their workplaces. In fact, for injury lawyers Coventry still produces all manner of workplace accident related compensation claims. There are also claims for industrial diseases such as deafness which resulted from an exposure to excessive noise years ago.
When claims do arise from Coventry however, the potential claimants are likely to ask some or all of the following questions, and will benefit from reading the answers before they embark on their claims proceedings.
How Do I Know Whether I Can Claim?
To be eligible for compensation, you must have been injured as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault.
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking the unique 30-second test at the Accident Advice Helpline website.
How Long Do You Have To Claim?
For most types of claim you have a period of three years from an accident or incident in which to begin claims proceedings and after this time has elapsed you can no longer claim. This is not the case however, with claims that deal with an industrial disease or with an injury to a minor. For disease claims, the three years run from the date that the disease was diagnosed rather than the date that the victim contracted the disease, and for minors, the three years run from the injured person’s 18th birthday.
