Injury lawyers Ipplepen
You could be looking for injury lawyers in Ipplepen because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury lawyers in Ipplepen, or ones based anywhere else in the UK, can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to make such personal injury compensation claims.
How to file an injury claim
The first thing you need to do in order to make any personal injury compensation claim, is to find an appropriate injury lawyer in Ipplepen or elsewhere to represent you. You need one with experience of dealing with claims for the type of injury and accident you have been involved in. For example, if you broke a leg or arm because you tripped and fell in a shop, you would need an injury lawyer who specialised in accidents in public places. An injury lawyer who specialized in road traffic accidents, for example, would probably not be able to secure the maximum amount of compensation for your injury, because he or she had no expertise in handling such claims.
If you have problems finding an appropriate lawyer, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline, as you will also (probably) need an injury lawyer who works on a no-win, no fee* basis. This is because legal aid for personal injury compensation claims was abolished in 1995.
You will probably be given a first appointment with an injury lawyer free, so that you can discuss your potential claim. By the end of the appointment, the lawyer should be in a position to tell you whether or not you have grounds on which to base a personal injury compensation claim. However he or she will not be able to give you an estimate of the amount of compensation you could get until you have supplied him or her with your medical records and so on.
