Injury lawyers in Flitwick
You generally have three years from the date of an accident, or of first being diagnosed with an illness, in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, there are some types of accident for which you have only two years in which to file an injury claim. Some of these are accidents in the air (on international flights), at airports or at sea.
Then there are occasions when you have more than three years, such as if you were a child at the time of the accident and no one made a claim for you. Then you have three years from your 18th birthday to pursue compensation.
To find the correct timescale for you4r situation, you should speak to the advisors at Accident Advice Helpline.
The injuries you can claim for
You can claim for any injuries as long as you required medical attention. This does not mean they had to be life threatening injuries, just that you had to see a doctor or visit your local hospital. It could be a whiplash injury, a broken arm and maybe a damaged knee. They will all cause you pain and suffering and until you have recovered can affect your life.
A medical report will be needed from whoever treated your injuries, and sometimes an independent medical assessment is needed. This is nothing to worry about, it can help to strengthen your personal injury claim.
