Another reason for seeking out injury lawyers in Kyle (for example) is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.
That person might be a local restaurateur if you had food poisoning after eating at a restaurant; a landlord if you are a tenant living in poor conditions; or an employer if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease. There are other illnesses which fall into this category, so this list is not exhaustive.
How long do you have to make a claim?
Usually, if you have been diagnosed with an illness for which you and you lawyer can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, you have three years in which to make a claim.
If you have been injured in an accident in the UK, you normally have three years once again, in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, if you were injured in an accident at sea, in the air or at an airport, you only have two years to file your claim, as such accidents are governed by international conventions.
You also only have two years in which to file a claim for injuries sustained in a violent crime. You can claim for such injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). Although you can submit a personal injury claim directly to the CICA, it would be best to hire an experienced criminal injuries lawyer to help you as the process can seem complicated and it can also be a lengthy one.
Certainly, if you wanted to appeal against any decision made by the CICA, you would need a lawyer to represent you. Also you would need to know if any compensation amount offered was reasonable for your injuries, and a lawyer would be able to give you this information.
