If you live in Hastings and St Leonards and have been injured in an accident that was in no way your fault, and you could prove this, you may be in need of injury lawyers in Hastings and St Leonards. You must file a claim within three years of the date of your accident, normally, although in the case of an accident at sea, or at an airport or in the air, you only have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. Check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to make your claim. Of course, you can also check with injury lawyers in Hastings and St Leonards or a firm of injury lawyers based anywhere else in the country.
Injury lawyers in Hastings and St Leonards
You can also file a personal injury compensation claim for an illness which you and your injury lawyers in Hastings and St Leonards, for example, can prove was caused through the negligence of another person. This may be an occupational disease or a work-related illness for which your employer could be responsible, for example. You have three years from the date of your first diagnosis in which to file a claim.
Illnesses for which another person could be responsible also include food poisoning, MRSA, or heath problems related to your poor quality accommodation if you are a tenant.
Filing a claim
The first thing you have to do to make any personal injury compensation claim, is to find a firm of injury lawyers in Hastings and St Leonards or ones elsewhere, who have a lawyer who is a specialist in the field of personal injury compensation, and one who specialises in the type of accident you have had. For example, if you have had an accident at work, you wouldn’t want to seek the services of an injury lawyer who specialised in road traffic accidents. If you experience difficulties in tracking down a specialist injury lawyer then call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
