Injury Lawyers in Folkestone

You may have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury lawyer can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. This could be another reason why you are looking up injury lawyers in Folkestone. An illness which could be the result of another person’s negligence could be a work-related one, or perhaps food poisoning which you received medical treatment for after having a meal at a restaurant or other eating establishment.

Statute of Limitations

Generally speaking, you have three years from the date of your accident, or of first being diagnosed with an illness (as described above) to file a personal injury compensation claim with a firm of injury lawyers in Folkestone, or ones from any other place in the UK. However there are some types of accidents for which you need to file a claim within two years. These include, but are not limited to:-

  • accidents in aircraft (but not those which occur on domestic flights);
  • accidents at sea;
  • accidents at airports; and
  • injuries sustained in the course of a crime.

So, for example, if you were injured on the cross-channel ferry from Folkestone to Calais, you would only have two years in which to file a claim.

In the case of a being injured in a violent crime, you would have to make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) and have only two years in which to do so.
