Injury lawyers in North Muskham Newark
There are two main reasons for trying to locate a firm of injury lawyers in North Muskham Newark-on-Trent or one based anywhere else in the UK. The first reason in that you have been injured in an accident that you and your injury lawyers in North Muskham Newark, for example, can prove was no fault of yours.
You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, but for some accidents and injuries you only have two years to do so. You should check with injury lawyers in North Muskham Newark (for example), or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, for this information. You can find our freephone numbers below.
The second reason for contacting injury lawyers is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.
How do I find an injury lawyer?
You can usually find an injury lawyer close to where you live if you search online or go through the local telephone directory. However, not all injury lawyers would be able to represent you, as they tend to specialise in different areas of the law. For example, if you fell in the street and injured yourself, you would need an injury lawyer with experience of handling claims for such accidents; there would be little point in hiring an injury lawyer who primarily dealt with claims involving dog bites and attacks. If you have any problems in finding an appropriate injury lawyer, contact us here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Exceptions to the three-year rule
If you were injured in an accident which occurred at sea, in the air or at any airport (as long as the country it is in is a signatory of the Montreal Convention), you only have two years in which to make a claim. This is also true if you have been the victim of a violent crime which occurred in Wales, England or Scotland. If you were a victim of a violent crime, you can claim for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
