How can injury solicitors in Lennoxtown help?
If you have been injured in an accident and have proof that it was not your fault, then injury solicitors in Lennoxtown, or others based anywhere else in the country, could help build your case for filing a personal injury compensation claim. You may have photographs taken at the scene of the accident which can be used as supporting evidence, and you may have the names and contact details of witnesses to the accident. If the police were at the scene, then their report would also be needed, as well as a medical report.
You might have been diagnosed with an illness which you, together with your injury solicitors in Lennoxtown, can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. This might be negligence on the part of your employer in the case of a work-related illness or an occupational disease. It might be food poisoning, or any other type of illness which may be caused by the negligence of someone other than yourself.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of someone else’s negligence, you have three years from first being diagnosed with it in which to make your claim.
You would usually have three years from the date of an accident in which to file a personal injury compensation claim if the accident occurred in the British Isles. However, if the accident in which you were injured occurred in the air, at an airport or at sea, you would have just two years in which to make your claim.
You would also only have two years in which to make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if you were injured in a violent crime which took place in Scotland, England or Wales.
If you are in doubt about just how long you have in which to make your claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline, or contact a firm of injury solicitors near you.
