Rutland Water is England’s largest man-made lake, where you can do a variety of water sports, go cycling or walking or if you have children, you can visit the adventure centre. There is something for everyone there, including accommodation and restaurants. However, there won’t be any injury solicitors in Rutland Water. It is simply a tourist attraction and the reason why many people visit Rutland.
Why would I need injury solicitors in Rutland Water?
There are two main reasons why you would need a firm of injury solicitors in Rutland Water, or ones based anywhere else in the country. The first is that you have been involved in an accident and were injured, but you can prove that you were not to blame for it. You would need the help of injury solicitors in Rutland Water, for example, to build a case against the person you allege was responsible for the accident.
The second reason for seeking the services of a firm of injury solicitors in Rutland Water, or elsewhere, is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.
How long do I have to make a claim?
Usually you have three years to make a personal injury compensation claim from the date of your accident. However there are exceptions to this rule and in some cases you only have two years or less in which to file your claim. Check with us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of the freephone numbers below, or with a firm of injury solicitors based close to where you live, to find out how long you have in which to file your claim.

If you are a cyclist you will know that drivers are not careful or considerate to people who cycle. You may have an accident at any time, despite you taking care and sticking to the rules of the Highway Code. If, for example, your front wheel lodges in a pothole, you might fall off your bike and be injured in a number of ways. If this happens to you, it is possible that you could make a personal injury compensation claim against the local authority which has the responsibility for maintaining roads and pavements. You may be able to claim not only for your injuries but also damage to your personal property (bike, mobile phone, clothes and so on).
