    Personal Injury Solicitors in Hellingly

    If you live in Hellingly, then you probably know almost everyone in the village and will know that there is little point in searching for injury lawyers in Hellingly. However, if you were looking for injury lawyers in Hellingly, you may have had an accident in which you were injured. You and your injury lawyers in Hellingly would have to be able to prove that your accident was not your fault, but the fault of another person.

    Usually you would have three years to file a personal injury compensation claim, but for some accidents and injuries you only have two years in which to do so. For example, accidents that happen at sea, in the air or at an airport are governed by international conventions, and you must file an injury claim within two years of their occurrence.

    If you were injured while a crime was being committed, you would also only have two years in which to file a claim with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

    If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, or any other illness which you and your injury lawyers in Hellingly can prove was caused by the negligence of another person, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. You have three years from the first diagnosis of the illness in which to make a claim.

    How to file a claim

    First of all, you will need to find an injury lawyer with the experience and expertise you need to file a successful claim. There are many different kinds of accidents, illnesses and injuries, and you need an injury lawyer with a good track record of winning the maximum of compensation for clients who have been in similar accidents to yours. For example, if you have been injured during a crime then you will need an injury lawyer who is familiar with the claims process which CICA has. If you have had a road traffic accident, you wouldn’t need an injury lawyer who deals with accident at work claims.
