    Injury Lawyers in Lower Slaughter

    Lower Slaughter is a very picturesque Cotswold village, but even there accidents can happen. If you are a resident of Lower Slaughter, then you will know that you won’t find injury lawyers Lower Slaughter-based. However, you may be wondering how you could find an injury lawyer with sufficient expertise and experience to assist you in making your personal injury compensation claim.

    Injury lawyers in Lower Slaughter

    If there were any injury lawyers Lower Slaughter-based they could help you file a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident, which you can prove was not your fault, and you would normally have three years in which to file your claim. However, there are some accidents (usually those that happen outside the UK) for which you have only two years in which to make a claim.

    Examples of accidents subject to the 2-year rule

    If you were a passenger on a cruise ship and you were hit by a falling object (for example)   which had been improperly stowed away, you would have two years in which to make your claim for any injury you sustained. Also if you had an accident on board a plane or any other aircraft, on an international flight, you would have only two years in which to file your claim. You may have slipped or tripped over an obstacle which should not have been in the aisle, or perhaps you were scalded by a hot drink tipped by a steward. Apart from these examples, you may have had an accident at an airport, perhaps a slip, trip or fall, as these are the most common types of accident as they can occur anywhere. For accidents which occur in these places you have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim.

    Also, if you were the victim of a violent crime, you would only have two years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.

    Accidents abroad

    If you booked a foreign package holiday through a UK tour operator you may be able to claim for injuries in an accident while you were at your hotel. The hotel owner, staff and holiday representative are considered to be the representatives of the UK tour operator. If you can prove that their negligence was the cause of your accident and subsequent injury, then you may be eligible to make a claim against the tour operator when you return to the UK.
