If you are unable to find a suitable lawyer, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline; we can help you with all the personal injury compensation claim questions you may have.
Injury lawyers in Gloucester
You may have had an accident in which you were injured, that was not your fault. If you and your injury lawyers in Gloucester, or lawyers based in any other location in the country, can prove the accident was the fault of another person, then you can make a personal injury compensation claim.
You can also make a claim if you and your injury lawyers in Gloucester can prove that an illness you had was caused by another person’s negligence.
You generally have three years in which to file a claim, but you should check with your injury lawyers in Gloucester (or injury lawyers elsewhere) or with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to file your particular claim. For accidents at sea, in the air or at airports, for example, you only have two years in which to file a claim. You also only have two years in which to file a claim with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) for injuries sustained during a crime.
If you are a cyclist, you will know that drivers of motor vehicles are not very careful about bicycle riders. Drivers and their passengers sometimes open doors without checking to see if there is a cyclist passing their parked car. Also they may swerve and knock you off your bike. You and your injury lawyers in Gloucester can claim damages if this has happened to you.
If your front wheel hit a pothole in the road and you were injured, you can also make a personal injury compensation claim for your injuries and damage to your bike, clothes, and other personal possessions. You can make a claim for this type of accident against your local authority as it is responsible for the maintenance of roads.
