If you live in or around Milnthorpe in Cumbria, you may be contemplating making a personal injury compensation claim because you have been injured in an accident which you and your injury solicitors in Milnthorpe could prove was not your fault in any way. Usually you have three years to make a claim if the accident in which you were injured occurred within the British Isles.
However, there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years to make a claim, so the sooner you begin the process the better. You can of course check with injury solicitors in Milnthorpe, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out just how long you have in which to file your specific claim. You can call us on one of our freephone numbers, which are given below.
Injury solicitors in Milnthorpe
It is possible that you have recently been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. If that is the case, you may also be searching for a firm of injury solicitors in Milnthorpe so that they can help you with your potential personal injury compensation claim. You have three years in which to file a claim for an illness caused by someone else’s negligence.
What is my first step to making a claim?
First of all, you need to realise that there are many different types of accident, injury and illness, and that an injury solicitor will usually specialise in one area of the law. If you had an accident at work, for example, you would need to hire the services of an injury solicitor who specialised in this field — one who had an excellent understanding of health and safety and employment law. You would not need an injury solicitor who specialised in road traffic accidents, for example.
Finding an appropriate injury solicitor may not be an easy task. If you have any difficulty in finding one, you should call us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will probably be able to put you in touch with one.
When you find a suitable injury solicitor, you can normally have an initial appointment free of charge so that by the end of the time allotted for your discussion, the solicitor can tell you whether or not you have good grounds on which to base your claim. If you are unable to travel to the solicitor’s office because of your injury, they could visit you at home or at the hospital.
