You could be looking for a firm of solicitors because you were staying at a ramshackle hotel while you were on holiday and you tripped and fell in the grounds on uneven or broken paving, causing an unexpected accident in Bodmin. If you had to have medical treatment for your injuries, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. However, if you were wearing a pair of shoes with five-inch heels and tripped because you couldn’t walk in them properly over cobblestones, then you could hardly claim that the hotel owner was responsible for your accident, could you?
To make a personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove without a shadow of doubt that the accident was in no way your fault. You would need solicitors, for example, to help you build your case for a unexpected accident in Bodmin.
Another possible reason for seeking the services of a firm of solicitor is that you have been diagnosed with an illness that can be proven to have been caused by another person’s negligence.
How long do I have to make my claim for an unexpected accident in Bodmin?
If you have an illness that is the result of another person’s negligence and this can be proven, then you have three years from first being diagnosed with it in which to file your claim for personal injury compensation.
If you were injured in an accident that you can prove was definitely not your fault, and it happened in the UK, you would usually have three years in which to file your claim for injuries. However, you may have much less time to claim for certain injuries, so call us here at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to file your claim.
