There are two places called Bishopton in England, and two in Scotland all of these are villages, so there may not be a firm of solicitors Bishopton-based in any of them. So what would you do if you believed that you had grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim? If there were a firm of solicitors Bishopton, there might be a personal injury specialist on the team, but if there isn’t, call us at Accident Advice Helpline. We are a law firm with more than a decade’s experience of dealing with personal injury compensation claims. We work with a team of specialist solicitors based all over the British Isles, and the good news for their clients is that they all work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. There will probably one at least, who is an expert in the area of the law that governs your particular claim.
Why might I need a firm of solicitors in Bishopton?
At some time in most of our lives, we need a solicitor; some deal with conveyancing, others with criminal matters, while others deal with personal injury compensation claims. You may need solicitors in Bishopton, for example, to help you file an injury claim because you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault.
You may, on the other hand, be trying to find a personal injury solicitor who can help you file a claim for an illness you have been diagnosed with that you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence.
We at Accident Advice Helpline can probably help you with whatever potential personal injury compensation claim you believe you have to make.
You generally have three years from the date of your accident (if it occurred in Britain) to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, if, for example, you were involved in an accident that was the fault of an untraced or uninsured driver, you would only have nine months to make a claim for any injuries you sustained through the Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
If your accident occurred at sea, in the air or at an airport in most countries in the world (the country must be a signatory of the Montreal Convention) you would have two years to file a claim from the date of the accident.
If you were injured while a crime was being committed, you would also have two years in which to claim for your injuries through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
