Injury lawyers in North Kessock
You may be looking for a firm of injury lawyers in North Kessock, or a firm based elsewhere in the British Isles, because you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. Generally, you have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, but for some accidents and injuries you only have two years in which to make a claim. These include accidents which occurred at sea, in the air and at airports. If you were the victim of a violent crime in England, Scotland or Wales, you also only have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
Illnesses resulting from the negligence of another
You may have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. Examples of these are food poisoning after eating out, Legionnaire’s disease and work-related illnesses. You have three years from first being diagnosed with an illness such as these in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. If you and your injury lawyer in North Kessock can build a case to prove negligence, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim.
Accidents on holiday abroad
If you booked a package holiday with a UK tour operator, you may upon your return be eligible to make a claim against that operator if you had an accident and were injured while at your hotel or in its grounds. This is because the hotel owner, the staff and the holiday representative are seen to be representatives of the tour operator.
If you have an accident while going to and from the airport to the hotel, and this was part of your package deal, then you may be able to make a claim for your injuries. You can claim for any injuries sustained in the hotel and its grounds if you can prove that your accident was caused by another person or their negligence.
