Perhaps you have been typing the phrase injury lawyers in Fochabers into your search box because you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault in the last three years. (Three years is the usual amount of time you have from the date of an accident in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.) You could also be looking for injury lawyers in Fochabers because, again within the last three years, you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence.
Injury lawyers in Fochabers
Injury lawyers in Fochabers and elsewhere in the British Isles can also help people file personal injury compensation claims for the death of their partner, spouse or child, if they died from injuries in an accident that was not their fault, or from a disease or illness caused by someone else’s negligence.
Finding an injury lawyer
If you think you have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim, the first thing to do is to discuss your potential claim with an appropriate injury lawyer, or you could call us at Accident Advice Helpline for advice.
You will need a lawyer who is a specialist in obtaining compensation for the type of injury and accident or illness you had or have. For example, if you had a slip, trip or fall in a public place, you wouldn’t need a lawyer whose field of expertise was in accidents at work.
Many injury lawyers in Fochabers-based, or any in other locations in the UK will offer you a free initial appointment so that you can discuss your claim. You will probably need to look for a lawyer who works on a no-win, no fee basis as you cannot get legal aid to file a personal injury compensation claim any longer.
By the end of the appointment the lawyer should be in a position to advise you as to whether or not you have a claim to file. You may then hire that lawyer to represent you, or look for another one.
Although you may have two or three years to file a claim, the quicker you do so the better, as if the case has to go through the courts, the process could take years rather than months. Also if you are claiming compensation for injuries sustained in an accident, the details will be clear in your mind if you start your claim as soon as possible after the accident.
