If you are a resident of Lytchett Minster in Dorset, you will know that there is little point in looking for injury solicitors Lytchett Minster-based. You may find a firm in nearby Poole, but even there, you may not find one who specializes in dealing with the type of accident you were involved in. If that is your situation, call us at Accident Advice Helpline wherever you live in the country on one of our freephone numbers given below. We are a law firm that works with a team of expert solicitors who are based all over the country. They all work on a no-win no fee* basis, which is good news, as there isn’t any legal aid available for personal injury compensation claim cases now.
Why would I need injury solicitors in Lytchett Minster?
There are two basic reasons for seeking out the services of experienced injury solicitors in Lytchett Minster or elsewhere. The first is that you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. You have three years to file a personal injury compensation claim if the accident happened within the UK. For other injuries which occurred in accidents that happened at sea, in the air or at an airport, you only have two years in which to make your claim. This is because such accidents and any injuries sustained in them, are governed by international conventions.
The second reason for looking for injury solicitors in Lytchett Minster, or ones based in any other part of the UK, is that you have been diagnosed with an illness that you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for this type of illness.
Illnesses caused by negligence
You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or occupational disease, and if so, you and your injury solicitor would have to build a case to show that your employer’s negligence caused your illness. You would need to be represented by a solicitor who has experience in such cases and who understands the health and safety at work regulations.
If you had food poisoning and received medical treatment for it you may also be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of the establishment where you ate, the manufacturer of a contaminated product, or your UK tour operator, if you were ill while on a foreign package holiday.
There are other types of illness which may be caused by someone else’s negligence, and these two are only examples.
