You may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors in Needham Market because you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was no fault of yours. You usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident that happened within the UK. However, there are some types of accidents, such as those which happen at sea, in the air or at an airport, for which you only have two years in which to make a claim.
If you are not certain just how long you have to make your particular claim, then call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers to find out. You could also call injury solicitors in Needham Market to get the same information.
Injury solicitors in Needham Market
You may also be seeking the services of a firm of injury solicitors in Needham Market if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. The other person could be your landlord, if you live in rented accommodation and have repeatedly asked them to do much-needed repairs. If you are living in damp conditions, for example, you may contract a respiratory disease because of this. You and your injury solicitors in Needham Market, for example, could build a case to prove that your landlord’s negligence caused your illness.
Victims of violent crimes
If you were the victim of an unprovoked attack, then it might be possible for you to make claims for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). If you were injured in a violent crime in Northern Ireland, you can claim for your injuries through the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme. You would have two years in which to file a claim for injuries sustained during a crime.
Although you can download a form and fill it in yourself, it would be advisable to hire the services of an experienced criminal injuries solicitor, as the process may be both long and complicated.
