Chathill is a village in Northumberland which is unlikely to have a firm of solicitors in Chathill. There are many different kinds of solicitors, of course, but if you need a personal injury solicitor, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Why you could need personal injury solicitors in Chathill
There are two main reasons why you could be looking for personal injury solicitors in Chathill. The first is that you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault with the help of solicitors in Chathill. The second is that your doctor has informed you that you have an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. Solicitors in Chathill could help you to build a case to prove that your illness was the result of negligence on the part of someone else, for example.
An illness or disease caused by another person’s negligence is categorised as a personal injury, so you can file a personal injury compensation claim against the person responsible for one.
How long do I have to file a claim?
If you have an illness which can be proven to have resulted because of negligence on the part of another person, you have three years from the date of your diagnosis in which to file a claim. You also usually have three years in which to claim for an injury sustained in an accident that happened in the UK.
However, not all accidents and injuries have this length of time for you to make a personal injury compensation claim, so it would be best if you found out exactly how long you have. You can do this by calling us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of the freephone numbers below.
How much compensation will I receive?
There is no way of being certain of how much you might receive in compensation, either for injuries or illnesses. This is because there are several factors which need to be taken into consideration. These include:
- The severity of the injury;
- The type of illness or injury;
- How much others have received with the same injury or illness in the recent past; and
- The amounts the Judicial College has specified for your type of injury.
You can, however, get a rough estimate of how much you could potentially receive in compensation by going to our website and taking our 30-second test.
