Injury lawyers in Forres
If your accident happened at sea, on an international flight or at an airport, you only have two years in which to file a claim, as such accidents are governed by international conventions. You also only have two years in which to file a claim if you have been injured while a crime was taking place. Injury lawyers in Forres can advise you on the time period you have in which to file your specific personal injury claim. You could also call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers given below.
First steps in the claims process
The first thing you need to do is find a firm of injury lawyers in Forres. Then, you should find out if there is a lawyer who specialises in your type of personal injury claim. For example, if you have a clinical negligence claim to make, it would be no good hiring a lawyer who is an expert in road traffic accidents. You should also bear in mind that legal aid for personal injury compensation claim cases was abolished in 1995. You will probably need the services of a lawyer who works on a no win no fee basis.
You should manage to be given a first appointment free of charge so that you can outline your reasons for claiming that your illness or accident was no fault of yours. This may be at the hospital if you are hospitalised, or at your home if your injuries mean that you could not visit the lawyers’ offices. The lawyer should be able to decide whether or not you have a good case to make a claim, and if you have then you might decide, after the discussion, to hire them to represent you.
