How long do I have to claim after an accident?
There are strict legal time limits for claiming after an accident. These can vary from case to case. It’s normal in most negligence cases for the time limit to be three years. But you may have longer, for example in cases where the injury is an industrial disease such as asbestosis or repetitive strain injury. A longer time limit also applies in cases where someone involved was a minor at the time of the accident. Contact us at any time if you have any queries on this.
What compensation can a lawyer in Beccles claim for me?
The amounts awarded vary from case to case, because every accident is different. Usually, your lawyer in Beccles will claim an amount for you that will compensate you for:
- The injuries you have received;
- Loss of earnings;
- Costs such as transport and prescriptions; and
- Other costs such as help around the home and childcare if you have needed them.
How long will it take?
Again, it’s hard to give a definitive answer. It varies from case to case. It usually will depend on the severity of your injuries and how complicated the circumstances of your accident were. What we can say is that we will keep you fully updated throughout your claim.
