If you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was no fault of yours, you may be looking for solicitors in Atherton to help you file a personal injury compensation claim. You could also be looking for a firm of solicitors in Atherton if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by the negligence of another person. However, it would be easier for you to contact us at Accident Advice Helpline rather than try in vain to find local solicitors to help you with a claim.
Accidents in public places and solicitors in Atherton
If you were walking past the building in Atherton (or any derelict building anywhere else in the country), for example, and a brick fell on your head, you may suffer serious head injuries. It could take a long time for you to recover, and perhaps you would never fully do so. A spouse, partner or child may, under such circumstances, be able to file a personal injury compensation claim on your behalf.
If you have an accident in the street, you should call the police and an ambulance. The police will write a report and inform the responsible person or organisation about your accident. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, you should still receive immediate medical treatment, as some apparently minor injuries can become much worse.
Although you usually have three years in which to file a claim for injuries sustained in an accident that occurred within the UK, not all accidents and the injuries resulting from them have the same limitation period. You should check either with a firm of solicitors in Atherton, ones based elsewhere, or with us here at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you have before the time limit runs out for your potential claim.
