Following an accident or injury, many people seek out the services of a personal injury lawyer in Ashington or a local personal injury law firm in order to find out whether or not they’ll be able to make a claim for the harm that they’ve suffered.
As a personal injury lawyer in Ashington will often inform them, the first step in making a claim and finding out who or what was responsible for you injuries. In some cases this can be relatively easy as a person or company may admit their liability straightaway.
If, for example, you slip on a wet floor in a supermarket, it can be relatively easy to show that they are responsible for your injuries and a personal injury lawyer in Ashington could help you to make a claim.
However, in some circumstances, it can be more difficult to highlight who or what was responsible for the harm you suffered. If, for example, you were hurt in a road traffic accident, the person responsible may flee the scene. Whilst this can make it more difficult to locate the person or people responsible for your injuries, in many instances, the police will be able to assist you and your personal injury lawyer will still be able to help you make a claim.
However, it’s important to remember that there can be time limits regarding how long you’ve got to make a compensation claim following an injury. Although you don’t have to make a claim straightaway, you don’t want to leave it too long and miss out on your chance to make a compensation claim altogether.
Providing you make your claim within three years of the injuries occurring, there’s a good chance that a personal injury lawyer will still be able to help and you could still obtain compensation. If you’ve been hurt or injured within the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, why not contact us to find out more about making a claim?
