Why seek injury solicitors Puttenham?
You would need a firm of injury solicitors Puttenham, or a firm close to you, if you sustained injuries in an accident which you could prove was not your fault. If the accident in which you were injured occurred within the UK, then you probably have three years in which to make a claim, although there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years to file a claim.
You may also need a firm of injury solicitors Puttenham or elsewhere, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. It could be the negligence of your employer, for example, if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease. You have three years from the date of first being diagnosed with the illness in which to make your personal injury compensation claim.
Accidents with a 2-year limit or less
You only have two years in which to claim for injuries resulting from an accident at sea, in the air, or at an airport (if the country has signed the Montreal Convention). You also only have two years in which to claim for injuries which you sustained during a crime. You can claim for injuries arising from a crime through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), or the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, depending on where the crime was committed.
If you make a claim for injuries sustained in a road accident with an uninsured or untraced driver through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau, the accident must have been reported to the police within five days, and a claim should be made within nine months of the date of the accident.
The sooner you begin the claims process, the better for you, as some claims can take years, rather than months to be settled.
