An accident solicitor in Bicester, or one elsewhere in the UK, can make personal injury compensation claims for clients who have suffered an injury in an accident which was not their fault. They can also make claims for people who have been diagnosed with a work-related illness caused by the negligence of an employer and claims for fatal injuries.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident, or you have an illness because of your working environment, then you should consult an accident solicitor in Bicester or elsewhere for advice. You will be informed whether or not you have sufficient grounds to make a claim. This will follow a discussion which is usually free of charge.
You need to file a compensation claim for a personal injury within three years of the date of your accident or of being told by a doctor that you have an illness which is work-related.
Proof of negligence
An accident solicitor in Bicester, or one anywhere else in the UK, will have to prove that your accident or illness was in no way your responsibility. If you were in a road accident perhaps it is not clear who was at fault – there are occasions when a traffic accident seems to be no one’s fault. However the responsibility for the accident could rest with the local authority which has to maintain roads and keep them in a good state of repair.
If your employer failed to adhere to the Health and Safety at Work Regulations, then they may be guilty of negligence. You should be properly trained in all aspects of your job and if necessary, your employer should provide you with appropriate protective gear. Employers have a responsibility to keep their workers as safe as possible.
If you have an accident at work, or in any public place, you need to report it and have details of it plus the names and addresses of witnesses recorded in the accident book.
