Being involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault can be frustrating – no matter how serious your injuries were. However, many people don’t realise that they could be entitled to claiming compensation for their injuries if the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence.
Claiming compensation is often seen as a slow, stressful and unlikely route to getting the result you deserve after an accident. But, when you work with our personal injury solicitors in York, we fight tirelessly to get the money you deserve – and it won’t cost you a penny until we do!
To learn more about our York personal injury lawyers, we’ve put together this brief guide on why, how and when you should contact our team.
Our team of personal injury lawyers in York are dedicated to getting the compensation that you deserve after suffering an accident. We work with all types of accidents, claims and injuries – some of the most common are listed below:
Please remember that we’re unable to list all the injures that we work with, here. If you suspect that you have an injury that deserves compensation, call us and we’d be happy to advise!
Due to the time limits that England and Wales have on their personal injury claims, it’s important to get our York injury lawyers on your case as soon as possible. This is because you only have a set amount of time from the date of your accident to starting a claim.
Adults are eligible to make a claim for a personal injury that wasn’t their fault within three years of the accident date. For example, if the accident happened on your 30th birthday, you have until your 33rd birthday to pursue legal proceedings.
If you’re making a personal injury claim on behalf of a child, the same three-year time limit also applies. However, you have the ability to leave the claim for the minor to pursue once they reach the age of 18. At this point, they’ll have three years to start the process.
These time limits are short and you may find that your claim is delayed by waiting for information from third-parties. The Courts and Police may need to be involved, so it’s best to get started on your claim with one of our York injury lawyers as soon as possible.
It’s not just the years of experience that you’ll benefit from when working with our team of personal injury solicitors in York. In fact, all claims automatically receive:
Although our York office is located just North of the town centre and we’re easily accessible by car and bus, we understand that you may not be able to visit our team in-person.
This is why we offer a choice of appointment types – including in-person, telephone and Skype – to cater to your needs.
Did you know that all of our personal injury in York claims have a no-win, no-fee agreement? This means that if your case successfully results in compensation, we’ll deduct our fees off your final settlement amount. Until then, you won’t pay a penny!
Along with both of these amazing benefits, you’ll also have 24/7 access to our team of personal injury lawyers in York when we work on your case. This allows you to discuss any legal queries that you have when you have them, and get constant updates on how your claim for compensation is progressing.
