If you are looking for injury lawyers in Leamington Spa, you might have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You may have tripped or fallen over a piece of broken pavement while walking along The Parade, or perhaps you slipped in a supermarket or shop because liquid or food had been spilled.
In both cases you and your injury lawyers in Leamington Spa could build a case to prove that your accidents were the result of other people’s negligence.
If you have an accident in the street, then you could be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority. If you slipped in a shop or supermarket, if there were no hazard signs in place warning you of the potential danger, then you could be eligible to file a claim against the owner, as long as you had informed a member of staff and had the details of the accident logged in the accident book. You should seek immediate medical attention after any accident in which you sustained injuries.
You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident that can be attributable to another person. However there are some accidents such as those at sea, in the air or at airports where you have only two years in which to file a claim for your injuries.
If you are in any doubt about the length of time you have in which to file your specific personal injury compensation claim, check with your injury lawyers in Leamington Spa, for example, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline.

You have three years in which to file such a personal injury compensation claim.
