Claiming injury compensation with solicitors in Brockworth
If you had been running on an athletics track and tripped and fractured a limb because the surface you were running on was uneven, it would probably be possible to make a claim for your injuries against the owners of the track. You would need the help of solicitors Brockworth or elsewhere, in order to file the claim and prove the owners were negligent in maintaining the track.
Basically, you would need to prove that your accident was in no way your fault but a result of someone else’s negligence.
You could also require the services of solicitors Brockworth, for example, if you were diagnosed with an illness that you can prove another person’s negligence was responsible for.
How long do I have to claim?
If you have an illness that can be proven to have been caused by someone else’s negligence, you would have three years from the first time you were diagnosed with it to make your personal injury compensation claim. In the case of accidents and claims for personal injuries however, the answer is not as clear-cut.
Generally, if your accident happened in the UK you would have three years in which to file a claim, but there are certain exceptions to this rule, so it would be advisable to contact a firm of personal injury solicitors near you, or us at Accident Advice Helpline, to obtain information about your particular claim.
