    Injury Lawyers in Heanor


    You may be looking for injury lawyers in Heanor because you have been injured in an accident that was no fault of yours. If the accident happened in the last three years, you may be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, for accidents which happen at sea, aboard an aircraft or at an airport, which are governed by international conventions, you have only two years to file a claim.

    You also have only two years to file a claim with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) if you were injured during the course of a crime. You can apply for this kind of compensation without the services of injury lawyers in Heanor, but as the process is complicated and can be lengthy it is advisable to hire them to represent you.

    Injury lawyers in Heanor

    Although you have some years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, you should consider making one as soon as possible after your injury occurred. If you had an accident, the details will be clear in your mind if you make a claim relatively quickly. Also, claims are not settled quickly. If you can reach an agreement and settle out of court, then the process could be complete within six months. However, if you claim has to go through the judicial system, it could take years for you to be awarded compensation.

    Claim for illnesses

    You could also be looking for injury lawyers in Heanor if you have been diagnosed with an illness for which you can prove someone else’s negligence was responsible. It may be that you have fallen ill with food poisoning after eating at a hotel restaurant while on a foreign package holiday, or perhaps you’ve been diagnosed with a work-related illness.

    You can claim personal injury compensation for food poisoning while on holiday abroad if you booked a package holiday through a UK tour operator. In the case of a work-related illness, if you and your injury lawyers in Heanor can prove that it was caused because of your employer’s negligence then you could make a personal injury compensation claim against them.
