Making an injury claim in Kentish Town
You may want to file an injury claim in Kentish Town because, in the past three years, you have been diagnosed with an illness which was the result of another person’s negligence. In the case of a work-related illness or an occupational disease, you could be able to file an injury claim in Kentish Town against your employer.
How to make an injury claim in Kentish Town
If you are intent on making an injury claim in Kentish Town, or one elsewhere in the British Isles, your first step will be to find a personal injury solicitor or an accident solicitor who is an expert in handling claims for accidents or illnesses such as yours.
For example, if you have been recently diagnosed with a work-related illness, you will need to find a solicitor who has dealt with similar cases in the past. It would not be much use in hiring the services of a solicitor who specialises in accidents in public places, for example. You need a solicitor who has the experience and expertise you need to win you the maximum amount of compensation you could receive for your illness or injury.
You should be given an initial appointment free, so that you can discuss your possible personal injury compensation claim. After the solicitor has listened to what you have to say and asked a few questions, he or she should be able to tell you if you have grounds to make a claim. At this first meeting, you should ask the solicitor to show you testimonials from previous satisfied clients so that you can be sure that your claim is in good hands.
If you decide to hire that solicitor, he or she will write to the person you say is responsible for your illness or injury and inform them of your claim. They will have ninety days in which to reply. Your solicitor will need your medical report and other documentation so that he or she can build a case for you.
