One of Hatfield’s former residents was Queen Elizabeth I who was confined in “The Old Palace” at Hatfield for three years. It became one of the “New Towns” along with Welwyn Garden City, Letchworth and Stevenage after the Second World War.
If you are a resident of Hatfield, you may be looking for injury lawyers in Hatfield to represent you after being injured in an accident that was no fault of yours. You will probably have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim as that is the norm. However, in the cases of accidents which occur at sea, in the air or at airports, you only have two years in which to make a claim. It is worth checking how long you have to make your claim with injury lawyers in Hatfield or elsewhere, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Injury Lawyers in Hatfield
There are other reasons for making a personal injury compensation claim; you don’t have to have been involved in an accident to make one. You can file a claim with injury lawyers in Hatfield for example, if you have been diagnosed with an illness or a disease which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. Some examples of these types of illnesses are work-related ones, food poisoning after eating out, MRSA contracted while in hospital or an illness caused by living in damp conditions if you are a tenant. You have three years in which to file such a personal injury compensation claim.
How Do I Make a Claim?
To initiate a claim, you will need the services of a firm of injury lawyers in Hatfield or elsewhere. You need to find an injury lawyer who is a specialist in your kind of accident, injury or illness. It would not be worth your while having a lawyer who is a specialist in road traffic accidents if your accident occurred while you were on a foreign package holiday, for example. If you have a problem finding an appropriate lawyer, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
You will probably have a free first appointment so that a lawyer can discuss your case with you and by the end of that appointment, he or she will be able to tell you whether or not you have a case to make a claim. You can then choose to hire that lawyer, or you can look for another.
