In July 2013, people in North Berwick were asked to check their cars before they drove away, as young puffins, or pufflings had been hiding under them. North Berwick also had some young gannets (gugas) washed up on its shores in the same year. The Scottish Sea Bird Centre ran a poll to find out what the public thought was the “People’s Big Five” species. The puffin was the winner, coming well ahead of the gannet, harbour seal, stags and deer and the otter.
You may live in North Berwick and be looking for injury lawyers in North Berwick because you have been involved in an accident in which you were injured. If you can prove conclusively that the accident was not your fault, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim if the accident happened less than three years ago.
You should be aware, however, that there are some types of accident and injuries for which you only have two years to make a claim. Check with injury lawyers in North Berwick or ones based near you to find out exactly how long you have in which to lodge your claim. You can also get this information, along with much more, from us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Injury lawyers in North Berwick
You may also be searching for injury lawyers in North Berwick if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. The other person may be your employer, the kitchen staff at a restaurant, or your landlord, if you are living in rented accommodation.
You have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim for this type of illness.
How can I find the right injury lawyer?
First of all you need to hire a lawyer who has expertise and experience in winning personal injury compensation claim cases for clients who have had the same type of accident and injury (or illness) that you have suffered. There are many types of accident and you need a lawyer who specializes in ones such as yours. For example, if you were a member of the armed forces and you wish to make a claim against the Ministry of Defence, you would need a lawyer who deals with such claims; it would be useless to hire a lawyer who specializes in accidents in public places for example. If you encounter problems in finding an appropriate lawyer, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
