Why would I need serious injury solicitors in Rowde?
You may have sustained injuries in an accident of any kind,that was not your fault and you may want to make a personal injury compensation claim and be seeking serious injury solicitors in Rowde, for example. Another reason for looking for a firm of injury solicitors is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove another person’s negligence was responsible for.
You usually have three years to file a personal injury compensation claim, but there are some exceptions to the three year norm.
Exceptions to the three year rule
If you have been injured in an accident at sea, in the air or at an airport (as long as the country is a signatory to the Montreal Convention), you have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim. You also only have two years in which to file a claim for injuries sustained in an unprovoked attack while a crime was in progress.
If you have been involved in an accident with an untraced or uninsured driver, you only have nine months in which to claim for your injuries through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
You should check with a firm of injury solicitors, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how long you have in which to make your claim.
If you were injured in a crime in England, Wales or Scotland, you may be able to make a claim for those injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. You can claim through the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, if the crime took place in Northern Ireland.
Although you can download a form and complete it without the help of an experienced criminal injuries solicitor, it would be better to hire the services of one, as the claims’ process can be long and complicated for a lay-person.
The crime should have been reported to the police and you should have had medical treatment for your injuries if the claim has any chance of being successful.
