Bishampton is a small village in Worcestershire, so is unlikely to have a firm of solicitors in Bishampton. If you are in need of a firm of solicitors, you could probably find one in nearby Pershore, although you may not find the expert you need. If you have a personal injury compensation claim to file, call us at Accident Advice Helpline. We are a law firm that has more than a decade’s experience of helping people file their claims. We work with a team of expert personal injury claims solicitors (all of whom work on a ‘no win, no fee*’ basis) who can happily advise you.
Solicitors in Bishampton and injury claims
You may have had an accident in which you suffered injuries, and as long as you can prove the accident was not your fault, you may have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim. Solicitors Bishampton, if there were any, might be able to tell you whether or not you have good grounds on which to base a personal injury compensation claim.
You could have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove (with the help of solicitors Bishampton or elsewhere) was the result of someone else’s negligence. Examples of such illnesses are food poisoning, a work-related illness, or respiratory problems caused by bad housing conditions, if you are a tenant.
How long to file a claim?
The length of time you have to claim for injuries varies, but a fairly good rule of thumb is that if the accident occurred within the UK, you usually have three years in which to make your claim from its date. However, if you were involved in an accident with an untraced or uninsured driver, you would only have nine months in which to make a claim through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. Ideally you should contact a firm of solicitors who are based close to where you live, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline so that you can be certain about the time you have in which to make your specific claim.
You have two years in which to make a claim for injuries arising from accidents at sea, in the air or at airports and also for any injury resulting from a crime.
If you have been diagnosed with an illness that was caused by another person’s negligence, you have three years in which to file a claim.
