5. You have suffered a bereavement which was caused by a fatal accident or work-related illness.
If you need an accident solicitor in Blandford Forum for any of the above reasons, there are a few general facts you need to know before choosing an accident solicitor to represent you.
The first is that the accident or crime in which you were injured should have happened within the last three years. There should be a police report in the case of a crime and often the police are called to scenes of road accidents, and again there would be a police report. You may also be asked if you have photographs of your injuries (perhaps taken by a police photographer, or from a mobile phone) or of the crime or accident scene.
If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, the law requires you to file a compensation claim within three years of first being made aware of this by your doctor. You may be asked to provide medical reports to back up your claim.
You may have had a bout of food poisoning because you ate something at a café, restaurant or stall or because you bought a product which was contaminated with bacteria such as e-coli. An accident solicitor in Blandford Forum or elsewhere will ask for the receipt and if you became ill after buying and eating a product, apart from the receipt you will be asked for the packaging so that it can be analysed.
If a close member of your family has died because of an accident or illness that was caused by another person’s negligence, then you may also have the right to claim personal injury compensation.
