Whether you have tripped over a paving stone or been involved in a road traffic accident, you may have a claim for compensation if you have suffered an injury and someone else is to blame.
The law imposes strict rules concerning the time period in which a claim for an injury can be made. If your accident occurred within the last three years and you have not already made a claim for any injury that you sustained, you may be able to make a claim.
In cases involving children, a claim can be started any time before their 21st birthday.

Many motor insurance companies will push you to use their 'preferred' lawyers. These are usually firms who pay the insurance company several hundreds of pounds in order to deal with your claim, and so are not necessarily selected on their merit. These firms may also be based at the other end of the country, which means that you are unlikely to ever have a face-to-face meeting with the person representing you.
Your insurance company is not legally permitted to insist that you use their preferred lawyers. Instead, you should carefully select a firm based upon their qualifications, expertise and whether they are 'right' for you.
