Accident solicitors in Kirkham
You could also be looking for injury solicitors in Kirkham, or ones based elsewhere in the British Isles, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You would have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for such an illness.
Illnesses caused by another person’s negligence
An illness which was caused by another person’s negligence might be food poisoning, or a more permanent illness such as partial deafness caused because your employer did not give you ear defenders, despite the fact that you worked in a noisy environment. This can be caused by undercooked meat, fish, poultry and so on, or by vegetables not being thoroughly washed. It can also be the result of cross-contamination in the preparation stages, for example if vegetables come into contact with raw meat and so on
You may also be a tenant living in poor housing conditions, and if you have complained about these to your landlord but nothing has been done about them, and you’ve become ill because of them, you may be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim.
