    Injury lawyers in Heckmondwike


    On the 5th August 2013, the Daily Mail website reported that Heckmondwike was home to the worst of the UK’s learner drivers. It has the worst driving test pass rate in the country, 7% below the national average, but is also home to what is thought to be the worst roundabout in West Yorkshire, the Gildersome roundabout, which perhaps partially accounts for these figures.

    If you live in Heckmondwike, you may have been involved in a road traffic accident, or any other type of accident, and be looking for injury lawyers in Heckmondwike.

    Injury lawyers in Heckmondwike

    If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, and you and your injury lawyers in Heckmondwike or elsewhere can prove this, then you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim. Usually you have three years from the date of an accident in which to file your claim. For accidents at sea, in the air or at airports, however, you have only two years in which to lodge your personal injury compensation claim. If you have any doubts about how long you have to file your claim, contact injury lawyers in Heckmondwike at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Claims for illnesses

    If you have been diagnosed with an illness or disease which you and your injury lawyers in Heckmondwike can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, then you could be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You have three years from the date of the first diagnosis in which to file a claim.

    Road traffic accidents

    You may have been involved with a driver who was driving drunk. Drunken drivers cause nearly 10,000 road incidents on Britain’s roads every year. You may have been a victim of an accident for which an uninsured driver was to blame. It is also possible that you were the victim of a hit-and-run driver. The UK’s government figures for 2012 show that 193,969 people were killed or seriously injured in road accidents in that year.

    You are able to make a personal injury compensation claim against another driver who was responsible for the accident, although if that driver was driving illegally without insurance you would have to make a claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. This can also be done if you were the victim of a hit-and-run accident. Although you can fill out a claim form yourself, you would be well-advised to have an expert injury lawyer help you.
