Injury lawyers in Lake Ullswater
You may live close to Lake Ullswater and be looking for an injury lawyer to represent you because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. This may be a work-related illness, an illness caused by your poor living conditions if you live in rented property, or food poisoning after having a meal out, or after eating a contaminated product bought in a shop or supermarket.
When should I make a claim?
You generally have three years after the date of an accident or of being diagnosed with an illness in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, there are exceptions to this general rule.
If you have an accident in the air, at an airport or at sea, then you only have two years in which to file a claim. If, however, you have an accident on Britain’s inland waterways (canals, lakes and so on), then you have three years to file a claim.
You only have two years in which to lodge a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if you have been injured in a violent crime.
