If you live and work in the area and are looking for an accident solicitor in Burley, the chances are that you won’t find one in the village. You may have had an accident at work, perhaps on a farm, that was not your fault. You could have been involved in a road traffic accident which was not your fault. As long as the accident in which you sustained you injuries was not your fault, you may have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim. You and your solicitor will have to prove that your injuries were caused by another person’s negligence. The same is true if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness; you must be able to show that the illness was caused by another person’s negligence (in this case, probably your employer’s).
You can also claim personal injury compensation if you contracted an illness which was demonstrably another person’s fault. For example, if you ate at a restaurant and were then ill and had to have medical treatment, you can claim personal injury compensation if the food had been incorrectly prepared or cooked. Someone in the kitchen was negligent about the preparation of the food on your plate; you can claim against the restaurant owner in a case such as this.
