Starting personal injury compensation claims in West Lancashire
If you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, and you live in West Lancashire, you could be wondering how you start personal injury compensation claims in West Lancashire.
Basically you need not only to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault, but also that it was the result of another person’s negligence or recklessness. If you think that with our help at Accident Advice Helpline you could prove these two points, then contact us now for help with any potential personal injury compensation claims in West Lancashire.
Types of accident
When we hear or see the word ‘accident’ we tend to think of road traffic accidents, but there are many types in which you could sustain an injury or multiple injuries. It doesn’t matter what type of accident you have been injured in, you might well be able to file a personal injury compensation claim.
Did you know that the most common types of accident are slips, trips and falls? This is probably because they can happen anywhere. You may trip in the street and fall, breaking a limb as you hit the ground. If you tripped because of uneven or broken paving, then you may be able to make a claim against your local authority.
If you slipped and fell in a shop or supermarket because of food or liquid that had been spilled, then you might be eligible to make a claim against the owner of the establishment. In fact you could also do this if your accident happened elsewhere, such as in a restaurant or cinema.
Find out how long you have to file your claim now
Although there is a three-year limitation period for claims arising for most accidents that happen in the British Isles, this isn’t always true. As you would only be able to make a claim after the deadline for doing so if you could prove that there were extenuating circumstances which had prevented you from doing so beforehand, you should find out now how long you actually have to file your potential claim. You can do this by contacting us at Accident Advice Helpline.
