If you head down to Suffolk, you may come across a borough by the name of St Edmundsbury. This rather regal sounding borough takes its name from the main town in the area, which is Bury St Edmunds. With an area of around 253 square miles, it has a population of some 112,000 people. While there are some St Edmundsbury personal injury claims lodged each year, the numbers are quite small.
In order for someone to make a personal injury claim, they must have suffered some sort of injury because of the actions of a third party, and that injury (or injuries) must have occurred in the past three years. Most individuals will seek out the assistance of a personal injury lawyer in these situations, as they will have the requisite experience needed to make sure they can provide advice and support.
Assessing the odds of making a claim
Since the arrival of the no win, no fee claims procedure, it has become easier for more people to make claims they may never have made in the past. If you are injured – let’s say someone crashes into your car on the road and it is their fault – you have a right to claim for the injuries you’ve suffered in that accident. Those injuries might affect your life for the short-term at the very least, and possibly for longer than that.
Of course, the process of claiming does mean following the course of the law. Since most individuals will have no need to know about the law until they want to claim for some reason, it is imperative that the person should seek advice from a no win, no fee lawyer.
Getting more information as quickly as possible
There is no rush to get information from a lawyer when you suffer an accident. However, you should try and get help as quickly as you can. This is because you have a three-year period in which you can begin a claim if you have a good case. The faster you do it, the easier it will be to recall the facts of what happened.
