Do you have an Allerdale road traffic accident claim to file?
Allerdale council reported that in 2012 to 2013, fifty-nine vehicles were reported as abandoned on roads in the area. These may have been involved in accidents, but these and burnt out vehicles should be reported to the police and the council so that they can be removed from the road. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, and you live in Allerdale, you may be considering the possibility of filing an Allerdale road traffic accident claim.
You need to be able to prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured, and at the same time, you need to prove that another person was to blame for it. If you could do this with the help of an accident lawyer, you may be eligible to make an Allerdale road traffic accident claim.
You should have received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as was practicable after the accident as your medical report will be required if you are to file an Allerdale road traffic accident claim. If the accident involved one or more motorised vehicles, the police should have been called and their accident report will also be needed.
How long do I have to file a claim?
You usually have three years to file a claim for personal injuries if your accident happened in the British Isles. If you wish to claim for loss or damage to personal property, however, you may have much less time to file a claim. Why not call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have? You should do this immediately so that you don’t lose out on any compensation you might be entitled to, as once the time limit is up, you cannot file a claim unless there were exceptional circumstances which prevented you from doing so within the limitation period.
