Injury solicitors in Lynton
Injury solicitors in Lynton, or ones based anywhere else in the country can help you if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can demonstrate was caused by another person’s negligence as well as if you were the victim of an accident.
You have three years to file a claim for most injuries and illnesses from the date of your accident or of the first diagnosis of the illness. Check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out exactly how long you have in which to file for your particular injuries or illnesses. The freephone numbers to call are given below.
Accidents in public places
The most common types of accident are slips, trips and falls which, of course can occur anywhere. A public place could be the street, a cinema, bank, supermarket and so on; they are anywhere that is accessible to the general public.
If you slip, trip or fall in the street, you should call the police and an ambulance. You can also, if you are able, take photographs of where your accident took place, and of your injuries as these can be useful supporting evidence for your claim. The police will write a report which can later be made available to your injury solicitor. You will also need a doctor’s report in order to file a personal injury compensation claim. If you have tripped because a pavement or road was badly maintained by the local authority, the police will inform the appropriate department. You can also do this. If you fell over a manhole cover which had not been properly replaced after maintenance work had been carried out, you could make a personal injury compensation claim against the utilities company whose property it is.
