If you live in the Metropolitan Borough of Knowsley, you may be looking for injury lawyers Knowsley, perhaps because you have been injured in an accident that you, along with your injury lawyers in Knowsley can prove was not your fault.

There are some accidents, however for which you have only two years in which to claim; these include accidents which occur at sea, in the air and at airports.
If you are uncertain about precisely how long you have in which to make your personal injury compensation claim, contact injury lawyers in Knowsley or some based close to where you live, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline. Our freephone numbers are given below.
Injury lawyers in Knowsley
Another reason why you might be searching for injury lawyers in Knowsley, for example, is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence. That person may be your boss, if you have a work-related illness or occupational disease, your landlord, if you are a tenant and have developed respiratory problems (for example) because of the damp conditions you are living in.
You may have a claim to make for food poisoning after eating at a restaurant or at a hotel when you were abroad on a package holiday booked through a UK tour operator. These illnesses are just a few examples of those which can be caused by another person’s negligence.
How to begin an injury claim
First of all you have to find injury lawyers in Knowsley or elsewhere who are experienced in winning claims for the type of accident and injury you have had. There are many different kinds of accident and many injury lawyers who specialize in one type of these.
For example, if you were injured during a crime, you would require the services of a criminal injury lawyer who had extensive experience of helping clients file personal injury compensation claims with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA); you have only two years in which to do so from the date of the crime. You would not, for example, need the services of a lawyer who specialized in accidents in public places.
You will probably need a free initial appointment with a no-win, no fee lawyer so that you can discuss whether or not you have grounds upon which to base a claim.
If you have any difficulties in finding an appropriate injury lawyer, we at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help and advise you.
