Charlwood is a village in Surrey’s Mole Valley, close to Gatwick Airport. Charlwood is not recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, and it is probable that the area where it is now situated was woodland. Glover’s Wood, which is close to the village has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and if you go there in spring you will find it carpeted with bluebells. The church of St. Nicholas has some interesting wall paintings thought to depict St Margaret of Antioch and St Nicholas, which have been dated to around 1300; it is a Grade I listed building. Charlwood also has mediaeval cottages which were built before the introduction of chimneys and several other buildings of historical interest, including a village lock-up, thought to have been erected around 1792.
Although Charlwood has kept up with the times, there may not be a firm of solicitors Charlwood in the village, so if you are in need of the services of a personal injury solicitor, call us at Accident Advice Helpline (you will find our freephone numbers below).
Why might I need solicitors in Charlwood?
If you have been involved in an accident and injured, you may be considering making a personal injury compensation claim. You may need the services of a firm of solicitors in Charlwood or one based near you, in order for them to help you prove that the accident was not your fault. Solicitors in Charlwood, for example, could also tell you how long you have to claim for your injuries, for although you usually have three years from the date of an accident to file a claim, this is not always the case. There are some accidents and their resultant injuries which you must claim for in a shorter period of time.
If you have been diagnosed with an illness that you and your solicitors in Charlwood could prove was the result of another person’s negligence, you could also be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim, as such illnesses are classed as personal injuries. You would have three years from the date of the first diagnosis to file your personal injury compensation claim.
Exceptions to the 3-year rule
If you have an accident at sea, in the air, or at an airport, almost anywhere in the world, and you can prove it was no fault of yours, you have two years in which to file a claim. The same is true if you are injured in a crime. However there are other accidents and injuries with a much shorter limitation period.
