    Making an injury claim in Keresley

    You might be considering making an injury claim in Keresley for an injury you sustained in an accident that was not your fault.  Alternatively, you may be thinking of filing an injury claim in Keresley after contracting an illness (perhaps a work-related one or an occupational disease) for which another person’s negligence was to blame.

    Making an injury claim in Keresley

    You may have been shopping in nearby Coventry and tripped over a piece of broken curb or paving. If you fell and broke or fractured a limb, you may have grounds for making an injury claim in Keresley, for example.

    The city council (or any other local authority) is responsible for the upkeep and good maintenance of all roads and pavements under its jurisdiction. However accidents such as slips, trips and falls do happen, and injury claims resulting from these are budgeted for.

    Slips, trips and falls

    If you have a slip, trip or fall it could happen virtually anywhere and could be caused by someone else’s negligence. For example, if you are in a supermarket and liquid or food has been spilled on the floor and not cleaned up, and you slip and injure yourself, you could have grounds on which to base a claim. If you have an accident in a supermarket, for example, such as the one described above, if there were no hazard signs in place, warning you of the possible danger, then you could, perhaps make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Filing an injury claim

    Normally you have three years from the date of your accident in which to file your claim. However for some accidents, such as if you were the victim of a violent crime, or if your accident happened at sea or in an aircraft, then you only have two years in which to file a claim.

    This is because if you are the victim of a crime, you file a claim with the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) and accidents in the air or at sea are governed by International Conventions.
