Bilbrough is a village in North Yorkshire and as such, there may not be a firm of solicitors Bilbrough specialising in personal injury claims. If you are a resident of Bilbrough and believe that you have good grounds for filing a personal injury compensation claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers which you will find below.
Why might I need solicitors in Bilbrough?
If you have suffered an injury after being involved in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, along with your solicitors in Bilbrough, or ones based anywhere else in the British Isles, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You are unable to claim for injuries sustained in an accident for which you were responsible.
Another reason for seeking solicitors in Bilbrough or elsewhere, is that your doctor has informed you that you have an illness which can be proven to have been contracted because of another person’s negligence.
How long do I have to file my claim?
If you have been diagnosed with an illness caused by the negligence of another person, you would have three years from the date of your diagnosis in which to make your claim. Generally you also have three years to claim for injuries sustained in an accident that occurred in the UK, although you should check with a firm of injury solicitors near you to find out if that is true in your particular case. You could also call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to file your claim. Call one of our freephone numbers.
Bilbrough is set in agricultural country and if you work on a farm, you will have no illusions about the dangers inherent in your job. The Health and Safety Executive’s statistics show that only one in every hundred working people in the UK work in the agricultural sector (which includes forestry and fishing), but one in five fatal injuries happen to people who work in this sector. In 2012/13, 41% of all fatal injuries happened to farmers, and 17% of them occurred to farm workers. So almost half of the total of fatal injuries at work were suffered by people who work on farms.
If you have been injured in a farming accident, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation if you can prove the accident was not your fault.
