You might be looking for injury lawyers in Fleetwood if you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault, or if you have been diagnosed, within the last three years, with an illness which you can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence. You generally have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim in Britain, but in some instances you have only two years in which to do so.
Injury lawyers in Fleetwood
There are certainly quite a few injury lawyers in Fleetwood to be found online, but you need a lawyer who has expertise in handling claims for injuries sustained in the type of accident you had. You would also need one who had experience in your type of illness, if your claim is against your employer for an occupational disease for example. Finding suitable injury lawyers in Fleetwood might be a little tricky. If you can’t find injury lawyers in Fleetwood to handle your particular claim, you could give us a call at Accident Advice Helpline, on one of our freephone numbers.
Accidents in public places
A public place is anywhere which is open to members of the general public, the street, restaurants, cinemas, banks, museums, shops and so on. If you slip, trip or fall in the street, or if you fall from a sea wall which was not in a good state of repair, then you may be able to make a claim against your local authority. You would need to inform the police and report the accident to officers of that local authority or town council.
If you have an accident in a building which is open to the public, you should inform a member of staff and have them record the details of the accident (time, date and circumstances) plus the name and contact details of any witnesses in the accident book.
It is also a good idea for you to take photos of the scene of the accident and the injuries you sustained and perhaps “before and after” photos for comparison would be needed as supporting evidence for your personal injury compensation claim.
