    Solicitors in Berwick-upon-Tweed

    Berwick-upon-Tweed is in the very north of Northumberland and because of its geographical location it has always had strong ties to Scotland. Its walls, which were built in 1482, were fortifications to keep the Scots at bay after the town eventually fell into English hands. You can walk along the walls and over the Royal Border Bridge over the Tweed, which was built by Robert Stevenson, and take in the beauty of the Tweed estuary. Visitors to Berwick-upon-Tweed often purchase the traditional boiled sweets Berwick Cockles (minty) to take home with them. If you have a more savoury taste in food, you may decide to go to the Mouth of the Tweed Food Festival held in the middle of July.

    Solicitors in Berwick-upon-Tweed

    If you are a resident of Berwick-upon-Tweed, or a visitor, you may have had an accident and currently be looking for a firm of solicitors in Berwick-upon-Tweed. The one important point to remember if you are considering making a personal injury compensation claim is that you must be able to prove that any accident in which you sustained injuries was not your fault. For example, if you tripped and fell in the street, you might simply have fallen over your feet, but, if you tripped over a piece of broken paving, then you might be eligible to file a compensation claim against the local authority which is responsible for the good maintenance of roads and pavements.

    If you are a resident of Berwick-upon-Tweed it is also possible that you may be looking for a firm of solicitors in Berwick-upon-Tweed to assist you in making a personal injury compensation claim because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove (with their help) was caused by the negligence of another person. You have three years in which to make a claim for this type of illness from the date you were first diagnosed with the illness.

    How long do I have to make my claim for injuries?

    If the accident that was not your fault happened in the British Isles, you generally have three years from its date in which to make you claim. However, as you are aware, there are always exceptions to general rules. You would need to find out precisely how long you have in which to claim for your injuries either with solicitors in Berwick-upon-Tweed or with us at Accident Advice Helpline.
