If you live in the area, you may be looking for injury solicitors in Lambeth if you have been involved in an accident which you can prove was not your fault, and suffered injuries as a result. You normally have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for such accidents. However, there are some accidents, such as those which occur at sea, in the air or at airports, for which you only have two years in which to make a claim. If you are in any doubt about how long you might have to file a personal injury compensation claim, you could call us at Accident Advice Helpline, or check with a firm of injury solicitors in Lambeth.
Injury solicitors in Lambeth
It is possible that you are searching for injury solicitors in Lambeth, for example, if you have an illness which you can prove is or was the result of another person’s negligence. The other person could be your employer, a restaurant owner or your landlord if you live in rented accommodation, for example. You have three years from the date of first being diagnosed with the illness in which to make a claim.
Motorists are not as careful about cyclists as perhaps they should be, and as a result accidents seem to occur quite often. Drivers or passengers may open a car door just as a cyclist is passing and knock them off their bike. Even when a cyclist is wearing protective gear, serious injuries can be sustained.
Sometimes cyclists have accidents because roads are in a poor state of repair and front wheels become lodged in potholes, throwing the rider into the road. Then they may be hit by oncoming traffic, sustaining injuries which could be fatal.
If you have been injured in a cycling accident because of the poor condition of a road, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority whose responsibility it is to keep roads well maintained.
You can claim not only for your injuries and the pain, distress and suffering caused by them, but also for damage to property (your bicycle, for example) and any loss of earnings you have had because of your injuries. You would need to consult an injury solicitor in Lambeth in order to build a case for claiming compensation.
