You don’t need injury lawyers Newbury
You may have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence and be looking for injury lawyers in Newbury or elsewhere. You have three years to make a personal injury compensation claim for such an illness, although the sooner you begin your claim process the better. Don’t worry about trying to find appropriate local lawyers, just call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Why make an early claim?
You have three years in which to file most personal injury compensation claims because it could be, that after your accident, you are in no condition to make a claim. For example, if you are in a coma, or have life-threatening injuries, making a personal injury compensation claim is the last thing on your mind, or on the minds of your immediate family. However, if the injuries are not so serious, then you should think about making a claim as soon as possible.
