Why seek injury solicitors in Newgate Beccles?
If you are a resident of Newgate in Beccles, you may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors because you have been injured in an accident that you could prove, with the assistance of an expert injury solicitor, was not your fault. You normally have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim in the UK but it is best to check with injury solicitors. They’ll be able to tell you precisely how long you have in which to file your claim, as there are always exceptions to the rule.
You may also need the services of an injury solicitor if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove you contracted because of another person’s negligence. This could be a work-related illness or occupational disease, for example being exposed to asbestos, in which case you may be able to file a compensation claim against your employer. The employer may have been negligent in their duty to protect your health and safety while you were at work.
Some exceptions to the 3-year rule
If you were injured in an accident at sea, in the air, or at almost any airport in the world (the country the accident happened in must be a signatory to the Montreal Convention) then you have two years in which to make a claim for your injuries.
Work-related illnesses usually carry the rule that you can claim after 3 years from diagnosis which in a number of cases could be years after the initial negligence happened.
