    Personal injury accident claim in Liverpool

    Thriving, trendy, cultured and busy are just four words that can be used to describe the modern day city of Liverpool. With millions of pounds invested in the city over recent decades, more and more people are choosing Liverpool as a shopping destination, as well as taking the chance to marvel at its unique history.

    From The Beatles to the connection of the Port of Liverpool with the Titanic, there is a lot on offer in the city. But, like many other large, thriving cities, where there is a large collection of people, there is a higher risk of accidents.

    When an accident happens and someone is hurt, the victim could be eligible to claim compensation. If you are thinking of making a personal injury accident claim, this is what you need to know.

    Factor 1 – Timing

    Timing is key, and with compensation claims for personal injury, there is a three year deadline of which you need to be aware.

    But how is this deadline applied? The law states that the clock starts ticking from the moment it can be reasonably assumed that the injuries or illness can be attributed or connected to an accident or incident.

    In some cases, this is obvious; you had a road traffic collision and now you have several injuries from which you need to rehabilitate. But, for those thinking of making a claim due to illness from a job and so forth, the clock may start ticking long after the person left the job. Do you think this may apply to you?

    Factor 2 – How the accident happened

    Essentially, a personal injury accident claim in Liverpool rests on the fact that the accident or incident in which you were hurt was not your fault.

    Liability and responsibility will rest with someone else, whether an individual or a company, for example.

    In some cases, this is clear cut: the person hit your car from behind after failing to stop in time, or a vehicle pulled into your path, completing an illegal manoeuvre. There are some cases where this is not so clear cut, but as a law firm specialising in personal injury compensation claims, we know how to deal with such cases too.

    Factor 3 – The extent and impact of injuries and the accident

    Being hurt can be devastating. It can shake people so much that their confidence is dented, and depression is commonplace after a physical and emotional impact, such as an accident.
