Injury lawyers in Lower Largo
You may be searching for a firm of injury lawyers in Lower Largo or ones based elsewhere in the UK because you have suffered injuries in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. Alternatively you may have, or have had, an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. Usually you have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim in such cases. However if your injury happened in an accident at sea, aboard an aircraft on a flight outside the UK, or at an airport anywhere in the world (presuming that country is a signatory to the Montreal Convention) you only have two years in which to make your injury claim.
Claiming for injuries sustained in a crime
If you have been injured in an act of violence in England, Scotland or Wales, you can claim for the psychological and physical pain, distress and suffering caused by them. You have only two years in which to do this through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
Although it is possible to make a claim through the CICA without the services of injury lawyers in Lower Largo, it is recommended that you do have an experienced criminal injuries lawyer to represent you, because the process for claiming compensation may be complicated and long. Also if your claim was rejected, or if you were not offered a reasonable amount of compensation for your injuries, you would need to hire injury lawyers in Lower Largo or elsewhere to help you make an appeal.
The crime in which you suffered your injuries would have had to have been reported to the police and you should have a unique crime reference number to support your claim. It doesn’t matter if the criminal has been charged with the crime, or even if the police have found him or her, however.
The CICA would need to have access to a police report as well as your medical report in order to ascertain the severity of your injuries and for your claim to have a chance of being successful.
