Injury lawyers Gatehouse of Fleet

Gatehouse of Fleet gets its name because it had a toll booth in the 18th century and is located on the banks of the River Fleet. There were highwaymen in those days and rather than falling foul of them, travellers would often stay in the town. Gatehouse of Fleet has been welcoming visitors for centuries. If you have met with an accident there which was not your fault and you and a lawyer working for a firm of injury lawyers in Gatehouse of Fleet can prove that it was the fault of another person, then you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim.

You may also be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim if you and your injury lawyers can prove that you have, or have had, an illness for which you can prove negligence on the part of another person. The other person may be your employer in the case of a work-related illness, or the owner of a restaurant where you had a meal and subsequently went down with food poisoning.

You have three years within which to make most types of personal injury claims, but in some cases you have only two. It is advisable to check with injury lawyers in Gatehouse of Fleet or injury lawyers based anywhere else in the UK (or with us at Accident Advice Helpline) if you are unsure of the time period for your claim.

How do I make a claim?

Your first step is to find a firm of injury lawyers which has a specialist who deals with the type of accident you had, or one who deals with your type of illness. You will also need a member of a firm of injury lawyers who is willing to take on your case on a no-win, no fee* basis as there is no legal aid now for personal injury compensation claims (that was abolished in 1995). If you experience any difficulty in finding a suitable lawyer, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline for help.

You should be able to have an initial appointment free of charge. This is so that you can discuss your potential claim and so that the lawyer can, at the end of your allotted time, tell you if you have grounds on which to base a claim.

You might decide to hire that solicitor to represent you and then a letter will be written to the person you allege to be responsible for the accident or illness. That person will normally be given ninety days in which to respond.

Your lawyer will ask for a variety of documents from you, including a doctor’s report. Then he or she can begin to build your case.
