Personal Injury refers to an area of law that lets you get a legal remedy for losses stemming from an accident or other incident where someone else’s carelessness, intentional conduct or omission, causes you to be injured. If you have suffered injury, but are unsure whether you have a claim, give us a ring and we would be pleased to advise you over the phone.
Once we have advised that you have a claim worth pursuing, we will arrange an appointment where the details of the accident can be evaluated. We will then start to gather evidence in support of your case. We will write to the person you believe to be responsible for the injuries, telling them that you wish to make a claim against them and giving them details of the claim. Generally claims for personal injury must start within three years of the accident happening, but there are exceptions to this rule, particularly in cases involving children.
Some people may be put off making a claim because they believe that solicitors are very expensive and may not be able to afford to pay the fees. However, you may be covered by an existing insurance policy under your household contents policy or even your credit card, for example. We realise that insurance policies are not always easy to read or understand, so if you bring the documents to us we can check to see whether you are covered.
