When might I need a lawyer in Allendale?
If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, a lawyer in Allendale could help you make a successful claim for a sum of compensation that will help you cope with your injuries. Sometimes accidents just happen. They are caused by genuine mistakes.
But other times, it’s clear that the accident wouldn’t have happened if someone else had been paying due care and attention to their responsibilities. You could also receive money to help you with costs related to your accident such as:
- Loss of earnings
- Medical costs such as prescriptions
- Travel and transport costs
- Home help and/ or childcare.
How long have I got to claim?
You are usually entitled to claim within three years of your accident. Sometimes, there are different time limits. If the accident victim was a minor at the time of the accident or the case involves an industrial disease, you may have longer to claim.
What types of accident can I claim for?
The sorts of accident you can claim for are many and varied. Some may be surprising, others are more familiar:
- Road traffic accidents
- Slips, trips and falls
- Accidents at work
- Accidents on holiday
- Food poisoning
- Injury caused by faulty goods
- Sporting accidents
