Aylesbury is the county town of Buckinghamshire, which has a history of settlement probably beginning with the Celts. It has been called Buckinghamshire since the 12th century, and prior to that, it was a part of the kingdom of Mercia. If you have been injured in an accident in the county and you can prove it was not your fault, you may be looking for a firm of solicitors in Buckinghamshire to help you file a personal injury compensation claim.
Solicitors in Buckinghamshire and you
If you wish to discuss a potential personal injury compensation claim with solicitors Buckinghamshire, they might give you a first appointment free of charge. This is so that they can assess the grounds you have for filing a claim. By the end of the appointment, they should be able to tell you if you have a good basis for filing a claim or not. While you were discussing your case, you should find out how long you have to file your claim, as although you usually have three years to make a claim for injuries sustained in an accident that occurred in the British Isles, there are some accidents and the injuries arising from them that have less time for you to claim.
Solicitors in Buckinghamshire, or elsewhere, can also help build a case to prove that an illness you have been diagnosed with was the result of another person’s negligence. You would have three years from the first diagnosis to make your claim.
Accidents on inland waterways
Buckinghamshire has the River Thames running through it as well as the River Great Ouse and the Grand Union Canal. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) state that around 260 drownings occur every year in Britain’s inland waterways. Some may be accidental deaths, while others, which happen because of watersports’ accidents, may be the result of another person’s negligence or recklessness. You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for a fatal accident which involved your partner, spouse or child, if it can be proven that negligence or recklessness on the part of another person caused the accident. Of course, no amount of compensation can actually compensate you for the loss of someone you love, but it can help with any financial difficulties which might arise after a death.
