    There are several reasons why you may know Herstmonceux; Herstmonceux Castle was once home to the Royal Greenwich Observatory and it is now owned by the Canadian Queen’s University, so Canadians are frequent visitors. There is also an annual Herstmonceux Medieval Festival which attracts many tourists, both foreign and domestic. You may have had an accident that you can prove was not your fault while there and perhaps you were injured, and are now looking for injury lawyers in Herstmonceux to help you file a personal injury compensation claim.

    You may have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, and this would be another reason for seeking out injury lawyers in Herstmonceux or ones based close to where you live in the UK.

    How long do I have to file a claim?

    You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, although in some cases you have only two. You should make your claim as soon as you possibly can, however, as it may take years before you are awarded compensation as your claim may have to go through the courts. If you are in any doubt about how long you have for your particular claim, you should contact injury lawyers in Herstmonceux or elsewhere or us at Accident Advice Helpline.

    If you have an accident while at sea you only have two years in which to file a claim and this applies whether you were a passenger on a boat or ship, or a member of the crew. You also have only two years in which to file a claim if you were injured in an accident at an airport almost anywhere in the world, as such accidents are governed by the Montreal Convention.

    If you were injured in an accident in the air, then you also have just two years in which to file a claim.

    You also have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim if you were injured while a crime was in progress. You can file a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) and although you can fill in the form online yourself, it is advisable to have an experienced criminal injury lawyer to do this for you as the process can be lengthy and complicated.
