Harmondsworth is famous for its tithe barn, built in 1426 entirely without nails. It was bought by English Heritage in 2012 and is now open to the public. There are also two immigration removal centres close to Harmondsworth as it is located close to London’s Heathrow airport. You may know all this already, if you are a resident of Harmondsworth, looking for injury lawyers in Harmondsworth.
Injury lawyers in Harmondsworth
You may have been injured in an accident that was no fault of yours and be attempting to locate injury lawyers in Harmondsworth. You have, usually, three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However if you were involved in an accident that was not your fault in an airport, in the air, or at sea, you only have two years in which to make a claim. You may also have been diagnosed with an illness caused by someone else’s negligence and be looking for injury lawyers in Harmondsworth to represent you.
Filing an injury claim
When you are injured, or ill, filing a personal injury compensation claim may not be uppermost in your mind. You need to feel strong to contact injury lawyers in Harmondsworth or elsewhere to begin the claims process. However, although you have two or three years in which to file an injury claim, you should initiate the claims process as soon as you possibly can.
This is for several reasons:-
1 The details of any accident tend to fade over time. You may not recollect them all and this could weaken any compensation claim you may have.
2 It takes time for you to receive compensation. If you are able to settle your claim out of court, you could get compensation within six months. However it can take years before you receive compensation if the claim has to go through the courts.
3 If you suffer financial hardship during the time between your filing the claim and being awarded compensation, you may not be able to recoup all your losses. This would be the case if you took out a loan and the interest rate was extremely high.
