An experienced lawyer in Cumbria will help with your claim
If you want to bring a claim for compensation, then it really does help to have an experienced lawyer in Cumbria on board. You may be eligible to bring a personal injury case if:
- You have had an accident that meant you had to receive medical treatment for your injuries; and
- That accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness, negligence or criminal act.
The treatment you received could be short or long term. Your injuries could have been physical, psychological or even both. And they may have been caused by an individual, a company or a government body or agency.
Usually, the time limit you have to claim in is three years. For some types of personal injury, for example an industrial disease, or a case that involved a minor, it may be that you have longer to claim. But in all cases, the time limits laid down in law are strict. It’s a good idea to find out what your rights are as soon as possible.
Accident Advice Helpline will give you free legal advice on whether you have good grounds to claim. In addition, we’ll tell you how to proceed and how much you might expect to get in compensation.
