    Solicitors in Bexhill-on-Sea

    Bexhill Environmental Group has been busy over the winter months cleaning up Cooden beach, where tons of rubbish had accumulated. April saw the last of these cleanup efforts, as in the summer Rother District Council is responsible for cleaning the beach area.

    The last thing you want when having a picnic on any beach is to step on broken glass, or have a needlestick injury because people have left dangerous items on the sand. If you are injured on a beach, you may be able to claim compensation from those who are responsible for the upkeep of the beach. You would need the services of solicitors in Bexhill-on-Sea to help you file a personal injury compensation claim. They would need to discover who owned the beach, what caused your injury, and so on.

    Finding appropriate solicitors in Bexhill-on-Sea

    If you need a firm of solicitors in Bexhill-on-Sea, or one based anywhere else in the UK, then it may be because you need a personal injury solicitor to help you file a claim for compensation. You can make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that you were injured in an accident and were not in any way to blame for it.

    You can also make a personal injury compensation claim if you have been diagnosed with an illness or disease that you, with the aid of your solicitors in Bexhill-on-sea, can prove that you contracted because of another person’s negligence. You have three years from the date of your first diagnosis in which to file a claim.

    How long do I have to claim for injuries?

    This question is not straightforward to answer. If you have been injured in an accident that occurred within the UK, you would normally have three years from its date in which to file a claim for your injuries. However, if you were involved in an accident with a hit-and-run driver and the police failed to trace them, or if the driver that hit you was uninsured, then you would only have nine months from the date of the accident in which to file a claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.

    If your accident occurred at sea, in the air or at almost any airport in the world (to be eligible to file a claim, the country must be a signatory to the Montreal Convention), then you would have two years in which to make a claim for your injuries.

    You should check with a firm of injury solicitors close to where you live, or with us here at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you have to file for your injuries.
