If you are looking for a lawyer in Littleborough because you have been injured in an accident, you may be a little confused about how you actually find a suitable one. You might contact several solicitors’ offices and not find an appropriate lawyer to help you file a personal injury compensation claim.
This is because lawyers who deal with personal injury compensation claims tend to handle claims for people who have been injured in certain types of accident. For example, some lawyers handle claims from military personnel, while others deal with claims arising from sports’ accidents. You need to find a lawyer who specialises in dealing with claims arising from accidents similar to yours.
Looking for a lawyer in Littleborough?
You may be on the point of giving up your search for a lawyer in Littleborough and perhaps you are resigned to the fact that you will have to look for a lawyer in Manchester. However, there is an alternative. Contact us at Accident Advice Helpline and let us represent you if your potential claim is a valid one.
You can speak with one of our expert legal advisers on the phone. When you do, you should tell the advised how your accident happened and say what your injuries are or were. When you have finished describing your accident, the adviser will be able to tell you whether or not you have good grounds on which to base a personal injury compensation claim.
If you can file your claim, you can begin the process over the phone. You may not need to visit a solicitor’s office. You may, however, be asked to undergo a further medical examination.
When should I make my claim?
Ideally you should make your personal injury compensation claim as soon as you can after your accident. Normally you have three years after an accident that happened in this country to make a claim. However, sometimes you have less time to do so. Different types of accident have different limitation periods.
When the deadline for filing a claim has passed it is very difficult to file it. You will probably have forfeited your right to claim compensation for your injuries.
