    Accident lawyers in Creigiau

    Creigiau (meaning a craggy, rocky place) is in the Cardiff area of south Wales. It once had a quarry, but this was closed at the beginning of the 21st century. The original village grew to accommodate people who wished to live outside Cardiff and commute to work. There probably isn’t a firm of accident lawyers in Creigiau in the village, although there are many in nearby Cardiff.

    If you have been injured in an accident that you can prove, with the help of accident lawyers in Creigiau, for example, was not your fault, you may be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim. The crucial point is that you must be able to prove that any accident in which you were injured was not your responsibility.

    If you have been, or are, ill, and you can prove that your illness was the result of another person’s negligence, you may also be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim with the help of accident lawyers in Creigiau, or Accident Advice Helpline.

    How long do you have to make a claim?

    You have three years, generally, to make a personal injury compensation claim either from the date of your accident, or from the date of being diagnosed with an illness. However, there are some accidents and injuries which you must file a claim for in a shorter period of time. If you are claiming for an industrial illnesses, or if the accident happened when you were a child and no one claimed for you at the time, you have a longer period to make your claim.

    Accidents and injuries with a two year claim period

    If you have been injured in an accident at sea, in the air, or at many airports in the world (the country must have signed the Montreal Convention) then you have two years to claim for your injuries; this is because such accidents are governed by international conventions and not UK laws.

    If you have been injured while a crime was being committed you only have two years to file a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. Although in theory you do not need a solicitor to help you file such a claim, it would be wise to have an experienced criminal injuries solicitor to help, as the claims process can be a long and complicated one.

    There are other accidents and their subsequent injuries which have an even shorter period in which you should claim. Call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to claim for your injuries.
